Wow, congrats on overcoming bulimia!!! Bulimia is such a complicated illness. I heard that the average recovery time for it is about 5 years. I know a doctor who specializes in treating eating disorders and she said that it's one of the most complicated illnesses/disorders because it involves so much more than physically suffering and body image. She believes that it's really about connection (getting close to people), attachment (remaining close), and affect regulation (managing one's emotions: the highs and the lows). She also believes so much more about it. Anyhow, I don't want to bore you with theory and such.

Do you have health care? If you are still battling with bulimia (even if it's just here and there), it is a paridy diagnosis: meaning that health insurance companies must treat it (along with 7 other mental illnesses, such as bipolar, depression, and more) the same way they would treat someone with a broken leg.

Something to think about and look into. Let me know if you want more information. =)

Peace. Take good care!
