Bulimia

Posted by Christina Leeson on January 24, 2000 at 17:59:08:

Hi, I have a 27 yr old girlfriend, she has been bulimic for 7 yrs. She hasnt vomited in 1 week (she was doing it everyday). This week all shes been eating is italian ice (frozen juice) 36 individual containers she consumed this week, spinach, water and coffee, this has been her menu for the week, nothing else. Shes experiencing the last 2 days a bad headache very nauseated and a sore throat. Could this be because shes not eating right, and could the nauseated feeling come from her not vomiting all this week? Because her body is so use to doing that?

Hi, Christina.

The first question (although you may not understand it) is: Does your friend REALLY want to get rid of this problem?

Bulimia ALWAYS is a multifaceted problem. The Bulemia is but A tip of the iceberg.

The only real solution to a problem like this is serious "wellness". Even then, she still may have to deal with the psychological damage this condition has caused AFTER the condition is gone.

She will have to do some serious lifestyle changes (after learning about WHY she has this and WHAT to do about it). If she is not ready to do stuff like this, we both are wasting our time. In THAT event you would just be aggravating her condition by pushing her. Just love her as she is and pay little attention to her complaints since she is CHOOSING to keep them.

If she really wants to put this behind her, I stand ready to help her on this BB.

Walt
