I don't know who's listening, but I'm 37.

I didn't eat for years. When I was pregnant @ 24, I found out I had damaged my heart. I had thought I was in control of my eating now. I know I still don't eat as much as everyone else, but I'm not as active either. Now I found out that even though I'm overweight, I'm starving to death. I have to go for vitamin shots. I actually stripped my nerves from malnutrition. Now my daughter is starting down this road too. It's a horrible, glorified demon that never goes away.

Hi Crystal,
I had bulimia for 20 years and finally recovered in 2005. I think there is always hope. I have a website and women submit their recovery stories to me all the time. I've heard of women recovering even after 30 years, so please don't give up hope.
If you'd like to read these stories of recovery, I welcome you to stop by my website sometime: http://www.GetBusyThriving.com.
If there's anything I can help you with, please let me know. I know what you're going through and want you to know you can beat this.
With love and light,
