Hi, im from Switzerland, so im sorry for my bad English, but i try my best.
Im a 20 year old student. And im suffering from bulemia and a bad bad relationship with food since im 14 years old. Im not able to see my body what it really looks. My Bmi is completely okay and the people around me, tell me always that i have a beautiful body, and that i can be grateful to look like that. But i cant see myself like that... I always wanted to be not as that broad, i always wanted to be thin and sweet and not strong like a man, but im half Dutch, and i look like that. I have a waist and my shoulders are proportional to my hips, but i don't want to be as that broad. I look at the number from the skale, and it drives me crazy, but i need to weight and measure myself... And because of this mindset, im not able to love myself and feel myself attractive. So i started to feel like im in a competition with other womens. My boyfriend is really attractive and I have always thought that every other women is more beautiful and could take my boyfriend away. He absolutely loves me, and i love him, but my ill mind always interrupts my open minded and realistic thoughts. I hope i find help to accept myself and get healthy. Im glad to be a member of this community.

:welcome: to the forum. We have an Eating Disorder area which might be of help to you. Did something trigger this at 14 and start you on this road of belief? I think usually something started this off and if that can be addressed then maybe the bulimia can be too.

I'm afraid I know very little about Eating Disorders so I am of limited help here but I want to say that I understand and can be here to listen.

Hey thanks for your message. On the age of 14 al lot happened that triggered me, but the main problem was the whole socialmedia thing and ive always been a very self-critical person... And than the last straw was a doctor who told me, im fat...

a doctor told you you're fat?

I hope you don't go to that doctor anymore- that sounds so unprofessional

welcome. I hope this forum helps you

(I don't have bulemia, but I am an overeater) massively.
