Kim,
Thank god you're here. am i going to die from puking up blood? i refuse to go to the doctor about it. but i need to know, is it really the end of the world? everybody says "it's not normal" "it's serious" blah blah blah of course they're going to say that...of course it's not normal....but from what i've seen in my experience, it's not life threatening.

It seems like it happens when i try to empty my stomach too much. I bet this is a main reason people seek this place out. At least it was my reason. Blood is scary.

your thoughts?

thanks in advance

im glad things are well for you tinkinpink

as for you sadie no puking up blood is not life threatening but it can be if you let it go. you could have a tear in the throat or other complications and yes people are right it is serious. you could rupture something if you dont tell someone and then you have a chance of dying. my advice to you is to seek treatment for it because it means somethings wrong. we had a girl here where i treat eating disorders once but in the emergency room come in once she had fainted from her ed. she told us she had bulimia but there was nothing we could do for her sence she was eighteen. the next week rolled around she had come in, shirt drenched in blood which had been from purging she had tore the lining in her throat which can lead to throat cancer. hope this helps im here if you need me.

stay strong girlies

thanks for your honesty. Really. It's refreshing.

The cancer part is a bit scary especially since i smoke a pack a day, maybe the lung cancer will get me first.
