Bulimia

I have just recently accepted that im bulimic. Its been going on for about 2 1/2 years now. It started out rare and then became a normal thing for me. My question is, what damage have I already done to myself? Ive just now read how much damage it can cause and im scared to death. Are there symptoms I would have if being bulimic affected me yet? Like the wearing of my stomach or esophogus. In the time i have been bulimic, how much do you think it has medically affected me? Now im scared ive totaly screwed myself up forever, im afraid im gonna die or have to have surgery on my stomach or other things.

sweetie-you need to call your doctor ASAP OR insurance company and get to treatment center for eating disorders.  You need 're-define' your life and do NOT want ED to control your life when you can take back the control and have a happy healthy future....good luck!

You aren't ruined necessarily, but can be if you don't get help. It's good that you're in the place you're at right now mentally, because it means you understand that things need to change. You might definitely have physical symptoms if you have done damage. Do you throw up blood? Do you have pains anywhere? Are you having any physical things going on, big or small, that aren't necessarily "normal?"
