Bulimia ??: Biulimia is an acquired disorder of eating.It is composed of starving binging and/or over exercise and vomiting-purging/and laxative abuse in order to achieve resolution of the "overeating"to fix the "bad" behavior. The patient who is bulimic feels shamed to be not in "control" of herself. Because they are often "perfect" kids they feel overewhelmed and it is difficult for them fo ask for help.
