    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Admitting I Have A Problem

    I know I am bulimic, I eat and purge. My family and boyfriend think I have healthy self-esteem but they do not know I am horrified of being fat or overweight or considered unhealthy. I exercise a lot because I also do Dance and go to the gym which makes me feel good. The times I can't go to the gym I get disgruntled, upset, and irritable. It is like I have a voice in my head that says "no one remembers the fat girl, who hires the fat girl, you cannot be Fat Sara the world does not like that. I want to be healthy but do not want to reveal to my parents because they are overbearing and would microscope me to no end and I would never be let out. How do I start to be normal?

    Well, you have already started by writing here and reaching out. Eating disorders messes with your head all the time. I am anorexic but the body image in my mind is same thing. Is there someone you can talk too about this beside your parents?
