Bulimic or Not?

I have struggled with my weight since early childhood. I resorted to purging and restrictions in my college yrs. I will purge daily for several days to even a few months but can then stop for a few months as well. I mainly resort to this when stress levels are high or I feel defeated. It provides a release of emotions for me. I have been sent to the Emergency Room on several occasions for dehydration. Is this a sign of bulimia or is it something else?

goodness knows!
Maybe the beat support section would be useful to you, now you feel that you have recognized bulimia in yourself? Also have a browse through our Eating Disorders section, if you haven't already done so. :)

Wonderful...I feel like I have so many issues to deal with that I don't know where to begin. I am working on the borderline behaviors too so not sure where to focus my attention first.

It can feel very overwhelming, can't it? :hug1:
There are so many layers and it's a long journey ahead.
Just focus on little steps - you'll probably find that working on yourself in one area will have a positive knock-on effect in other areas. x
