Bulimia



Bulimia nervosa, often just called bulimia, is an eating disorder characterized by binge eating followed by purging—by induced vomiting or taking laxatives—or other attempts to control weight, such as excessive exercise or taking stimulants. This cycle usually includes overwhelming feelings of shame and guilt, and it can easily uproot one’s life and sense of self-worth. While bulimia is frequently discussed as a “women’s issue,” it affects all genders. Bulimia can have serious physical consequences and typically requires medical and psychological treatment.

If you or someone you know is in immediate need of support, please seek professional help. If you are in crisis, here are some immediate free resources.
