There is huge stigmatism in the medical community around helping those with EDs who are not underweight. I'm sorry you are going through this.

What you can do in the meanwhile is find a twelve step programme, a sponsor and meal support. If you need the contact number for a support group, you are welcome to PM me and I'll help you.

Carry on pushing with doctors. Bulimia is dangerous regardless of your weight and you deserve treatment.

But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth. It's just a matter of how you look at it, that's all

i also think they dont take me seriously
because i have a mental health diagnosis
because when i was lighter in weight
and in my 30's i was taken more seriously
and was receiving help but moved to a new city with no
program
but as soon as i received a mental health diagnosis
gained alot of weight and received a psw
wham now no one listens

i eat to the point of severe stomach pain
my family is afraid they will be burying me soon

and i use insulin as im type 2 diabetic
in my understanding that makes things
worse but obviously not
as i get no help
