Aging With History of Bulimia
Hi all. I’d appreciate help on this if you’ve had experience or knowledge of the long-range effects of bulimia. I am a 70 y/o woman. I learned about binge and purge in boarding school (away high school) and that’s when I started the behavior. I had an extremely tumultuous childhood, lots of alcoholic behavior, suicidal behaviors, etc. It was good to get away from home but it also started me on using binge and purge as a way to quell my anxiety. Now that I’m 70 I have a range of gastro problems like dysphasia, and a stomach emptying problem that requires I eat small amounts of food frequently. I also get severely constipated and sometimes feel too full up to eat. I stopp B&P in my mid-thirties. If anyone has words of wisdom , I would greatly appreciate hearing back.
