letter from Michelle

Hi I have been bulimic for over 14 years. I have tried counseling. I have been to group therapist. I have been in hospital twice. Once I almost lost my life.

I know I have a serous problem but I can’t stop. I am a solo mum. I have suffered from clincal depression and PTSD post traumatic stress disorder. My family knew I had had bulimia but think that I have stopped. I did for a month when I came out of hospital. I have worn all my teeth and the more that goes wrong with me, the more I do it. Help me please
