I'm not sure if this is allowed here, but I am writing a screenplay about a girl with an eating disorder (Bulimia specifically). I was hoping to get some insight for the scenes. If anyone would be willing to share a story of a binge/purge session, other behaviours you had that you associate with the disease, character traits you have, how your family found out, it would be greatly appreciated. I want to have an in depth look at the psyche during these time - how you feel and think while you are doing certain acts. I would also like information about recovery - mostly just random hospital stays due to complications associated to an eating disorder and the beginning of recovery. I'd also like to hear your opinions about a screenplay being written about this topic. I want it to be as realistic as possible, without being a how-to guide or like a lifetime movie.
