i have struggled with bulimia and depression for several years, and been in therapy on and off for over 4 yrs. now. the problem is that i cannot stay healthy. ive been on anti-depressants, dealt with the bulimia and stopped. now im doing it all over again. i know this means that im not dealing with some thing, but nothing has really changed in my life lately. i am so frustrated and angry with myself for doing all this again after 4 yrs. of counseling. i think my children are the only thing that keeps me from being severely depressed again.

kaw-

Cant say as I know anything about bulemia, but have heard it is just a symptom of a much deeper issue? Things such as low self esteem, fear of being alone, etc. Are you married? What was your family life like growing up? GIve us the details.

It doesn't help with Ally Mcbeal looking like a bag of bones and all the models being 10lbs...the media is causing some of these problems

Yes the bulimia is probly a symptome of something deeper... the key may be therapy off and on. perhaps you dealt with the outward symtoms of your dis-ease and the underlying causes were left there to fester and come back to the surface. which they will do again and again until you deal with the root problem. the root problem may be something you are in denial about, something you don't remember or something you just don't recognize as a problem.

If bulimia is a control issue get to a therapist and sttay there.

Good luck

I have suffered with bulimia for years, if I diet, I binge and suffer from bulimia.
If I dont diet and eat normally, (I am vegetarian and dont like sweet things)my weight gain is tremendous.
I have not been on a diet (or been bulimic for a year, I have increased my weight by a third!!
I am now scared to go on a diet because I know I will be bulimic again.
I dont know what to do?

I lost almost 20 pounds when I stopped eating dairy...the wight FELL OFF!!!

Look at your fat intake... fat has twice the calories of proteins and carbohydrates. (butter fat, milk fat etc etc)

You may be a vegetarian but if you are slathering your vegies in fat rich dressings and your potatoes in sour cream it is not necessarily a low cal or low fat vegetarine regime.

I also found that I can keep the weight off very easily with exercise...plus the exercise makes me feel lots better.

If you have had the cycle of bulimia you do need to see a therapist.
