Advantages: make you skinny
Disadvantages: deadly, causes other problems
Last year I noticed my best friend was losing a lot of weight over a very short time.She also ate very large amounts of food but had massive guilt trips about it and ofetn disappeared for ages after meals.
I recognised that she might be suffes=ring from bulimia and asked her how she was losing so much weight.After a while she confided in me and told me she was making herself sick up to 10 times a day.
Along with another friend we got an appointment at a doctors and told the doctor about what she had been doing.After discussion the doctor confirmed outr suspicoins but told us that we had caught the problem in time.
My friend recived counselling and now eats healthily.
The point to this story is that if you know someone who seems to be suffering from an eating disoreder is to try to help them.One of the ways I convinced my friend that she was being unhealthy was telling her the problems bulimia can cause:teeth rotting,osteoporosis and infertility.
Please try to help anyone with this condition by supporting them and trying to understand.
