My years of torture!
I’m 16 years old and I was bulimic for four years of my life. It all started when I started getting taller and my weight just went out of control.
At first, I just started cutting down on meals but then it went to skipping them. Then one day I saw this girl on the television talking about her eating disorder(she was bulimic) and I thought I would give it a go.
Keep in mind that I was only ten when it all started. At first, I would eat a larger dinner than any other 10 year old my age. I would eat all of my dinner and then go straight to the bathroom.
Soon enough, my parents started to notice my weight loss so I started to eat half of my dinner, purge and then finish the rest and then do the same thing. My disorder got so bad that I started passing out and puking up blood. Thankfully, I decided to stop for my health, if nothing else. And I did.
But then when I was 15, I got very depressed and the pounds started to pile back on. Soon, I was back to my old self. It’s been over a year and I’ve come to realize that I don’t need to be skinny to be happy or feel good about myself.
If you are reading this because you are going through the same thing, or if you know someone who is, just tell them that it is what’s on the inside that count.
