After reading Anorexics on Anorexia I eagerly waited for the publication of another similar book and to the prospect of reading the stories from the point of view of people with bulimia. After many years of no such book, I decided to attempt compil-ing such a book myself.

Binge eating refers to eating a large amount of food in a short amount of time

Binge eating refers to eating a large amount of food in a short amount of time. Purging refers to the attempts to get rid of the food consumed. This may be done by vomiting or taking laxatives. Other efforts to lose weight may include the use of diuretics, stimulants, water fasting, or excessive exercise. Most people with bulimia are at a normal weight

Thousands suffer from bulimia secretly and in silence. They are never diagnosed and their story goes untold.

Bulimics on Bulimia is a collection of accounts by people who are living with the disorder, shedding new light on the day-to-day struggle of coping with bulimia. This book challenges the stereotypical image of the bulimic teenage girl, revealing that bulimia affects a far wider range of people, and dispelling the myth that bingeing involves only food and purging involves only vomiting. The powerful stories in this book provide new perspectives on the experience of bulimia, revealing the complex realities of the illness and the different ways in which different people view themselves and the disorder that has become a part of their lives.

This book is a must-read for counselors, psychologists, and mental health professionals and will strike a chord with anyone who is suffering or has suffered from an eating disorder, as well as their friends and families.

I wrote one of the pieces for this book and I can tell you THIS IS NOT A RECOVERY BOOK. Unless you want to be so depressed by how far the illness can take you and how hopeless you can get that you want to get help. Heh. This is written by ladies and gentlemen that I personally know and we spent a year or two putting this together. I find it helpful to show to therapists and (eventually) to my parents because they truly don't understand our despair until they read the suffering of a woman (a good friend of mine) who has been stuck in this mindset for thirty years and has no hope of ever recovering. They don't understand how all-consuming bulimia is, and how embarrassing it is, and how sick you really are when at the same time the media just throws "anorexia anorexia anorexia" about eating disorders and well-known celebrities who "dealt" with it as a teenager. Bulimia is really the hidden sick sibling of anorexia that no one talks about. This book talks about it. Do not read it if you don't want to be triggered - you will be. It is written by myself and friends who have dealt with and continue to deal with the worst of bulimia (though I cannot say I have TRULY seen the worst, obviously, as I have not met every bulimic in the world) and how its destroyed their lives to the point that they have no hope of ever recovering. This is a good book if you're in that place and simply can't explain to those around you your mindset and what it is like to be fully in the clutches of bulimia and want to explain it from multiple points of view.
I read this book as a reference to write my own with my own experiences. I like how this spells the truth, no sugar coating, no fluff. A lot of people don't have the money for expensive recovery places. I'm glad this was brought up. This is probably one of the more factual books about bulimia that I've read.
First let me say up fron that I suffer from bulimia and have for many years.
This book is okay for families and friends of people with bulimia, however I found it to be a very hopeless book.
It left me feeling worse about myself than I already do. Maybe my expectations were too high. I am not sure but if you are looking for a book that will give you some hope, or help, this one did not do that for me at all.
This book does show the severity of this illness. It shows the depth of dispair that we as bulimics go through. It shows how bad it can get and that having this eating disorder really can be fatal. It scared me, but it did not help me at all.
So, to sum it up; if you want a book with hope for recovery and stories of people who are getting well, than this book is not what you are looking for. If however you want to see how bad this disorder can get than the book deserves 5 stars.
I read virtually every book there is on Bulimia, and this one is ingenious. It gives a full spectrum and aspects of the disease, and is written perfectly. I couldn't get my hands off this one when I first got it until I finished it a few days after. Recommended.
For me, when I was searching for EDNOS type books, it was to help me with Recovery.

This is not a recovery help book by any means. It does no good to read countless stories of women who are in the present moment still struggling with their Eating Disorders. For example one of the girls writes
"Maybe recovery isn't possible for me, maybe it isn't for anyone."

I find this a horrible comment for any female who is just beginning to try to recover. They need to know that it is possible and it is totally worth the struggle escaping.

Sure maybe this is a good book for people who don't struggle with eating disorders and would like to understand the thoughts that fly through the minds of people who do. Approach this with caution. In all honesty I found these stories to be immaturely written and barely skimmed below the surface of an eating disorder. I don't know how to critique this for people who don't struggle with EDNOS...SO i suppose rely on the reviews from those who do.

For people struggling with EDNOS hoping to recover ... or those going through the process of recovery I HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Purge- by Nicole Johns.
Book arrived very quickly and without damage. The description said there is a little wear but I thought it was great. I won't lie. The book itself was difficult to read..but only because I struggle also.
I loved this book and am having my fiance and my parents read it. I think it helps to read about others who have similar issues to you. It makes you feel like you are not alone in your journey or your suffering.
I read the whole book right away and got mad at first because I actually ended up skipping reading the important parts that would have told me that this book was made up from many different sufferers of ED's. For some reason the whole time I was reading it I actually thought that it was about one, and could not understand why each chapter was different. After I read the parts I previously skipped, I felt pretty dumb! Now I really do like it, and am glad I can read it again and understand it better!
