Bulimia Nervosa is an eating disorder where someone has regular episodes of binge eating (consuming a large amount of food in a short period of time) followed by purging (getting rid of calories). These cycles usually occur at least once a week for three months or more. If you are struggling with Bulimia Nervosa, you may purge via one or several of the following methods: self-induced vomiting, compulsive exercise, laxative use, diuretic use, insulin misuse, and/or diet pill use.
It is normal for those experiencing Bulimia Nervosa to have a negative body image related to their body’s size, weight or shape. Many individuals who experience Bulimia Nervosa may also struggle with other conditions such as self-injury, substance abuse and impulsivity.
