Bulimia recovery

Hi There,

I Purchased your Magazine (Uncovered magazine issue 3) to take on Holiday with me to read, it had the Articles in concerning eating disorders, well what a revelation it was to me at the time. I have suffered with Bulimia for over 29 Years !!! Yes 29 years!

Your article made me realise that Bulimia is a Mental Illness brought on by situations events in life that on the whole are probably out of your control. The article opened my eyes and made me think a little bit different about it all, and bearing in mind my husband and myself were on an all inclusive holiday at the time; not always the best idea for a person with Bulimia.

I made a conscious decision to stop being sick right there and then, I have been successful for the last 7 weeks I am very proud of myself but it is a constant struggle everyday. I would like to get a bit more help but at the moment I do not know where to go.

I would just like to say once again your article was a real inspiration to me and I hope my letter will be an inspiration to others.

Regards  Karen xx
