Bulimia
Thanks Dr D for contact details of Kenilworth clinic. I just discovered that my medical aid won't be able to cover all costs.I'll still need 10 000 more however I'm prepared to fight this Bulimia and I'll do all I can to beat it. I will in the mean time continue with my shrink and apply some selfhelp strategies. Like I've redirected my mind to eat three meals a day and do excercises. Also I'm in the process of dealing with my feelings head on rather than resorting to food. Bulimia is no walk in the park, I wish I could be my normal self very soon. Its tough to be ruled by food.

Dear Ayeee
Yes, bulimia is one of the most difficult conditions to treat, but I am so relieved that you are getting help and are on the right track. It will take a great deal of strength on your part plus some assistance from your psychologist, etc, but it is so worth it to get control of your life again and to be free of this scourge.
Holding thumbs all the way
Best regards
