Basic info-

Name/SN: Steph

Location: MD

Age: 24

Child(ren): Reagan (2.5) and Rocco (15mos)

About your ED -

Type(s) of eating disorder: BED and Bulimia

Length (how long you have struggled with your ED): I have had BED since before I can remember and developed bulimia around the age of 19.

Are you in Recovery?: I'm in the middle of a relapse with bulimia. =(

How long in recovery (we all know its a lifetime struggle): I have never been able to have a lengthy recovery. When I was pregnant with both of my kiddos I stopped purging but continued to binge. A few months after they were born the purging would come back.

Tools you have used in your recovery: I'm still trying to find them. It's embarrassing to have an ED. Especially if you are obese, as I am now. I like to keep it to myself but that doesn't work anymore. When I have told friends the truth I was shunned and treated like I was lying. It hurt so badly that I've just tried to ignore it. I can't anymore. I have started getting heart palpitations and my teeth are eroding from all the stomach acid. It's a miserable existence and I feel powerless to stop it.

Big thanks to *Kiliki* for my GORGEOUS siggy!
