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?
