Hi,

At 19 yrs old I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. With the shock of being told I'd be injecting insulin for the rest of my life, coupled with being told what I could and could not eat, and already existing anxiety, it was a perfect storm.

A side effect of the undiagnosed diabetes was also a loss of weight. Everyone around me began to comment on how thin I looked, uni friends, work colleagues and others said I looked great. Within 6 weeks I had developed bulimia. So began a 6 year battle with what and how much I ate, how much I exercised and how much I weighed.

It was exhausting, especially emotionally - I knew what I was doing and I couldn't stop it. I felt caught, trapped and lost. Yet, it has now been over 20 years that I have been bulimia free. It can be done and if anyone would like to hear more of what I believe helped me, I'd love to share this hope with them.
