Tiffany's Story Bulimia Nervosa


As you already know my name is Tiffany and I am 17 and I live in Nashville, Tennessee. And I just wanted to ask you some questions . OK, I'm an African American female who is 5'8 and weighting around 220 pounds. I have never been happy with the way I look. I have always tried to diet, but I could never stick to it. I tried not to eat, or eat once a day and nothing worked or not that I know of.

Anyway, for the last two weeks I have been on a diet where I ate nothing for a week, until I gave in last Friday. I ate all weekend and I felt so bad that I gave in. So I thought I would start back Monday. I started my diet and I didn't eat all day until about mid-day and I ate some cake. But when I ate the cake something clicked in my head and I felt really bad. I kept thinking this cake is gonna go to my thighs or my stomach and I just had to get rid of it. So I went to the bathroom and I threw it up and I been doing it all week. Every time I eat its like a reaction and I just go throw up.

And I just wanted to know, am I crazy? I know I'm not bulimic cuz I haven't lost any weight and I haven't been doing it for a long time its only been a couple of days. I just wanted some advice. When I was younger I used to wish I had a eating disorder so I would stop eating.

Well thanks for your time and any advise you can give me.
