I have been belimic for 5 years now, i have told people about it thinking maybe they can help me. I moved out when i was 15 mom was crazy step dad commited suicide because of my mom and my real dad has charges. I dont have anyone to go to, im afraid im going to die form it i cant stop, and its probably killing my stomach. If i dont have insurance to go to a doctor or get help what can i do? Have i damaged my stomach? How do i help myself if i cant afford it? Thank u for listening
hey. i'm struggling too. you have been though a lot, and the bulimia has probably gotten worse becuase of it. i know mine does though situations. it is possible to die from bulima, but from the sounds of it it just sounds like your stomach is haveing trouble with over producing stomach acid because you have been purging so much. people with bulimia can get heart attacks from it. ive had several signs of them before, the aching arm, the heavy chest, the left ring finger tingling, but my heart has never stoped. im lucky. thats hasnt happened in a long time though. i'm not a doctor, and i know i cant just tell you to stop bulimia beacuse it doesnt work that way, but try to purge less if you cant, or maybe take tums to help stomach acid if thats what it is. your post was vague so im not sure
Tanya, Check with the local university. They usually have some free counseling even if you aren't a student there. There are also support groups for eating disorders all over. Just google for support groups in your area. There is help out there if you have no insurance. You just have to do a bit of work and look for it. Let me know if you need any help searching.
