Lisa~ Hugs!! I'm a recovering bulimic too---I binged & purged my way thru college & somewhat into my 20's. To say "dont do it" is too simple--you know that when you're doing it you'll feel that you're in control of the situation but you know very well the feelings that will follow----shame, disgust, powerlessness & jealousy. This feeling will pass (the urge). . .get out & do something--like Sus said. Spend some time being good to yourself! Today I picked up 5 new shirts for DH! LOL It made me think about spending time w/ him (whenever that may be!) but it gave me something to look forward to!

Please feel free to email me @ scarlett_begonia_2000@yahoo.com or IM me on Yahoo messenger----same id. My AIM id is scarlettarmywife & I'm logged on most nights. As Im sure you know a bunch of us talk almost nightly----it's my therapy & gives me a chance to talk to like-minded people who make me laugh & keep me sane through all of this!

I don't have any advice, but wanted to send some huge hugs your way! I hope that sus & scarlett can help you through this time. We are all here for you! I'm actually very impressed that you sought out help. I'm not dealing with the same issues as you, but I know that I'm not always comfortable asking for help & I think it's great that you could!

I wish I knew how to help you. I've never been in your shoes, so I think my words might be all wrong. However, here's a link to a board here at iVillage full of been there done that people... Please check it out.

It's the anorexia and bulimia message board:

Lisa, I hope today is much better than yesterday for you. I pray you found another source of release. I know the zen like feeling that occurs after a purge..then of course you feel all the bad emotions but there is that moment.

If you need to talk you know where I am.

Hugs and support,

Susan
