Eating Disorder Recovery Message Board

Eating Disorder Recovery Board Index

Hi rad916,
Can you believe it, it's 1:25 a.m. I woke up and my mind started racing and couldn't go back to sleep. I didn't get a chance to check in yesterday, so I thought I'd fire up the computer and see what I missed.

As you can see, I too just found this board and I'm a little obsessed with it myself. My problem is that I don't have a lot of time on the days I work to post. But I have 4 days off a week and I'm going to try to spend some time here. You're right, there are people here that understand.

About the laxitives, It's funny you brought that up because I've just started becoming a little curious about using them too. My problem is that I'm a serious binge eater, but I don't purge. So I just keep packing on the pounds. It's horrible and sometimes I wish I could just make myself throw up to get rid of the calories I'm consuming. So... back to the laxitives, I used some about a week ago because I was so constipated from the poor diet. Needless to say, the next day I was running all day. I have Fri. off, so I'm going to use some more Thurs. night. I suppose I shouldn't be saying this, but if I can't bring myself to throw up, maybe this will work.

I can't answer your question about weather using laxitives will make you die, but I know you can become dependant on them and like the purging, it will pay a toll on your body. Maybe someone will answer your question and help us both.

Welcome to the board and I hope to get to know you better. I'm going to do a new post expressing my own difficulties. I hope you'll read it so that you can get to know my problems as well. Maybe we can help each other or at least just offer our support.

I wish you the best in your recovery journey. Oh, and you ARE in recovery. That doesn't mean that you are all better now that they told you that. It just means that you've began the process and you are at your own place with it. About all we can do is keep puting one foot in front of the other and eventually we'll make some type of progress. Even if all we are able to do at first is make little baby steps.
