    It happened last Friday. I went to lunch (not to eat but for company) with some friends. I only ate a few fries offered to me. But after the lunch, when I got home, I became so anxious about my life, I quickly ate a sandwich and then some cookies. I then felt horrible and purged . I’m still...

    I binged today.

    The first time in months, i actually ate during the day. Since i live at home and parents don't know about my illness, i have to eat that one meal in the evening my parents cook me (although i leave as much as possible. I never finish it) but other than that one meal, i eat nothing else. Maybe...

    Not feeling too great this morning....

    Thanks for the debate last night, was good to chat. I drank a bit (you could probably tell!) and that always loosens the control. I ate too much, felt so fat & porky. Drank a bit more (like that would help) then took extra venlafaxine. Stupid. I had a horrible night, heart thumping, weird...

    I just threw up
