I abuse laxatives and know the horrors it can cause to the body. I now have IBS because of the abuse...even though I'm still taking them. It's an addiction and should be treated as one because, atleast I know for me, it's like my body is craving them. It slowly starts to do damage by making it harder and harder to go making you take more to have an effect. When I first stopped using laxatives about 7 months ago it took me forever before I had a regular bowel movement and then I started having problems which led to the diagnosis of IBS. Are you in counseling for your ed and laxative abuse? I'd definitely find a therapist to help with this. It's one thing to have bulimia and another to have bulimia with laxative abuse. :nono:
