I have an eating disorder. The first

I have an eating disorder. The first person in whom I was able to confide about it was a friendly acquaintance (also recovering from purging-type anorexia) who also happened to be the former girlfriend of three years of the guy I was dating at the time -- we dated exclusively for just over a year. She never knew that I was dating her boyfriend; we didn't date "secretly" but we were discrete.

Now, I'm slightly heartbroken from my split with the guy and I desperately want to relapse into my purging-type anorexia, and she is the only one I know who could understand exactly, but I cant even bring myself to answer her e-mails. When I talk to her, I can only think about how much I miss him and how guilty I feel for not telling her about it or clearing it with her first -- I met him as her boyfriend, so dating him without her blessing and continuing to keep it a secret was pretty crappy of me to do.

  • Have you considered getting an std?

  • I'm the OP -- I know whoever wrote those comments probably won't see this, but thank you for your kind words.
    I have been purging again for about a week, but I'm trying to stop . . . again.

    Anyway. Thanks.

  • ^Yeah I agree. Also, don't start purging again. If you really feel that you can't talk to her about it, find someone else you can talk to.

  • Its only crappy if she cried on your shoulder about him while you dated him discretely, otherwise it shouldnt be a big deal..
