I began to vomit in January 2007 & haven't stopped.....sometimes i eat alot, i stuff my face & that's when i self induce my vomitting, not when i munch on carrots, etc....I've lost 20 lbs. since then but have been feeling really bad, stomach pain & cramping, & the feeling of wanting to throw up even if i have nothing in my stomach....i realized it was getting out of hand, so now all i eat r salads & small portions.....I started feeling dizzy, i've fainted twice, & lightheaded.....i had bloodwork done & turns out i'm super anemic.....i started taking vitamins a week ago & am feeling better....no more vomitting cuz i'm not eating much or anything at all....am i doing the right thing?

Hello
You definately need to eat! Just eat healthy stuff thats easy on the stomach. Slowly work your way back up to eating normal again. You are doing the right thing by taking vitamins. But you also need to get vitamins from food. I'm glad that you have stopped. I was bulimic for 4 years and started throwing up blood. So I know how it is.
