In brief: Stopping Bing&Purge

We all need help when it comes to an eating disorder. Typically this disorder starts with a 'successful" weight loss; usually by a quite severe restriction in food intake.
Then the person feels sucessful, but is unable to maintain such a small food intake, then they start to regain wt and resort to laxatives and vomiting. You need to find a medical professional experienced in eating disorders.

In brief: Find expert help

The binging and purging of bulimia is a serious medical problem and can lead to seizures and heart attacks.
But it takes a specialized eating disorders program that combines medical and psychiatric evaluation and observation and often medication, with individual and group counseling with therapists with experience in dealing with the problem.
