i have an induced vomiting issue that i've been dealing with on and off for the past 8 years... it comes and goes in phases... i don't binge and purge so balumia is out of the question... (if i feel that i ate too much during the day or if my stomach feels uncomfortable after a meal, i may "up" most of my dinner or lunch, not every day though).. i can do it on command without putting a finger down my throat. (last time i did this was today actually, not yesterday though, hopefully not tomorrow)


i tend to slip a lot of my food in my pocket when no one is watching. i only feel comfortable eating a certain amount. (i live in a shared housing place so i have no control over my portion sizes)

ahhhhhh I'm sorry Skunky , that sounds awful and to have to deal with it for 8 years on and off must be Intolerable.
Why slip it your pocket , why not just say  "this is all I wish to eat for now"

Thankkss Serenity, its been very intolerable. its been so bad at times that i would literally cry, asking myself Why???... i've tried asking my caretaker for smaller portions but she doesn't listen,, i've even left the dinner table with some on my plate but she just makes me come back and eat it.. (i've only been living here a year and she doesn't know aobut my voting issue.. she doesn't understand that you can't put big amounts of food in front of someone who has an eating disorder issue and expects them to eat it all).. she doesn't know i have a problem with food so  to get out of eating certain things that make me feel uncomfortable.. i play the "picky eater" card.

before i decided to move into this place.. i didn't know how controling it was going to be.. every aspect of life.. (if i knew before hand. i would haven't have taken it) its like living in a prison cell. always being watched, questioned, and can't even go anywhere by myself... i've complained to my social worker and started pushing boundaries in this house.

You need to make her listen babe because it's hard enough for you to deal with this , without this added humiliation of hiding your food.
She needs to understand that it will be better for you to eat little but more often because the Stress & Anxiety must only make this problem worse.

earlier today.. she found my stash of cigarettes.. she assumed they got mixed in my stuff when i came back from a long visit from my parents.. she was like "we gotta take these back to your mom, she might be wondering where they went"... and was like "ok??".... she didn't even ask me if they were mine LOL... she just assumes that im a non-smoker..
when she took me to my parents place.. i went inside and pretended to give them back haha. put them in my coat pocket lol. even asked my mom for an extra pack xD

Im gunna try and make her listen... you have no idea how bad the stress and anxiety is over this issue with the food..., i've caused more damage over this whole year than i did during the 8 years of having this food problem. haven't had bad depression like this either.. im gunna bug her not to give me so much food otherwise im just gunna start refusing. its the only thing i can do form here on.

So She doesn't even realize you're a Smoker , you must hide everything from her
you must feel like a Teenager hiding Cigs.
Keep Complaining and standing up to her because you're an Adult , even if She is your Care Giver.

I do babe because I had an eating disorder when I was Younger and I know exactly what kind of Anxiety this pressure is causing you , that's why I really hope She starts listening to you.

I hid my scales in the loft before my Girl hit her Teens because I refuse to let C go down that path and let food control her Life.

Im glad that you  understand and i shouldn't  have said  "you have no idea" (i take those word back),  i didn't know you went thru a very similar situation.  Its great that you looked out for your daughter so she doesn't end up with this.. it's truly a bad thing having food control your life in a negative way. and hopefully it doesn't happen to her.

what makes this problem even more embarrassing for me  is that im not a girl, im not a feminine guy (maybe a little bit at times lol, im not masculine either), or gay (these are some the biggest stereotypes with this disorder).

as for the smoking.. yes. i do smoke a few per day but i restarted because of my anxiety and depression. this past year has been bad. feeling like a teen hiding cigs is exactly how i feel (spot on).

i  have plans to move out in the next couple of years or so.. im gunna try and persuade one of my good friend to move into a 2 bedroom place with me when she's ready to move out of her parents.

Try to Ignore the Stereo types Skunky , this is not about Gender , this about Human Emotions and we all have them and Stress and Anxiety affects us all in different ways.

Some Cut and I have known Guys who are Cutters
It's just an Unhealthy Coping mechanism

Once you're happier and feeling more Independent , you'll start to take back control of your eating , the Crazy thing is that while we are caught in the Cycle , we Believe we are in Control  lolz   not laughing at you btw but how I thought I was in Control for years and years.

I'm not surprised you're Smoking , so would I be at least 20 a day in your shoes
and I'm not kidding either.

Oh now that would be Lovely for you , not Living alone but also not under Warden Control

Courtney Loves her food , by her age I had got to a Dangerous point BUT NO ONE TOOK MY SCALES AWAY OR MY TAPE MEASURE BECAUSE I HID IT WELL and my Obsession continued well into my 20's.

I last had a cold over a year ago and I don't remember the last time I threw up. I never do that, thankfully, because I'm an emetophobe -_-

You have a Fear of Vomiting in any form
I have never heard of this word before but I know of this Phobia

I hope you grow out of this , I think you will

The last time I was sick was like 8-9 years ago. And the last time it felt like I got a fever was almost one year ago.

Six months ago when a Vulture deposited a raccoon carcass in my back yard that I had to relocate because of its odor. It made me vomit. ;+
