I suffer from bulimia nervosa and it’s been a 5 year struggle. I kept it to myself for a long time because I was ashamed and disgusted. I lost relationships with friends and family, I went through periods of depression, and I hated for myself for a long time. Once I told my group of close friends and received a lot of support from them, things started to look up for me. Everyday is still a constant battle with food, but with the support from my loved ones, I have more control over the choices I make. I am learning to love my body more and more each and every day. Most importantly, I will NEVER GIVE UP in this battle against bulimia because I know I am worth more.
