Well... I'm 21 years old. I was once in treatment for bulimia (and anorexic tendencies) when I was a young teenager but I "recovered".
I've had better years. I really don't know how to deal with my eating disorder anymore. I'm what would be called a non purging bulimic or I'm just ED-NOS. I don't know.
I try every morning to eat correctly but I always finish binging and after restricting/exercising and taking laxatives.
I've been thinking about telling two friends about my eating disorder so they would help me to ask for help. But the problem is that I don't think my friends suspect anything.
My weight is rather stable and I eat normally when I'm with them. I feel like it's easy to control myself from binging or eating less if people is around me. I just eat healthy and that's all. But when I'm alone everything turns crazy.
The problem is that I don't know how to talk with them about it. I'm really insecure and I've been trying to do it for three months or more. I don't know how they are going to react. And I don't know if it's OK to ask help... when I was a teenager the help came to me and it was easier. I think they are going to think I'm just crying for attention or lying. Or that it's not a big deal.
So I just want to know, for the ones that are not teens anymore and ask for help themselves... how did you deal with it?
Did it work? Where your friends supportive? What were their reactions?
I just need some kind of feedback.
