BOOM

Rumination syndrome is a condition in which people repeatedly and unintentionally spit up (regurgitate) undigested food from the stomach, rechew it, and then either reswallow the food or spit it out. Rumination is a reflex, not a conscious decision. Rumination syndrome may go undiagnosed because it is often confused with other conditions.

Hmmm... Interesting. I don't think I've ever heard the name of the disorder but I've heard of it.


"And then I realized, food is the enemy."

"If you look in the mirror and don't like what you see, you can find out firsthand what it's like to be me."

"It never tastes any better than the first bite."

"My favorite feeling is empty. Then there's no pressure to be anything other than empty."

It vaguely reminds me of verping (Vomit+burping). Unintentional and awful. It occasionally happens to me if I overeat D:

I do this ALL THE FUCKING TIME! I never knew it had a name. Could it be because I've been purging for 6 years?

Yes, thank you. I feel like a lot of people have been confusing this with chewing/spitting. They're not the same. Rumination is a reflex, as you said. It's not an intentional behavior that's used for weight control/weight loss, etc. Chewing/spitting is intentional.

I get this, it's my way of purging food. It happened because I tried to violently make myself sick so much that this was a side effect of it. :S

It's pretty annoying, but it's the only way I feel I can control my food intake, other than restricting or fasting.

Actually... yeah that's right. With people it's involuntary, with cows it's normal.

Cows and other animals for which this behavior is normal are called ruminants. Fun facts

Wow. I didn't know it had a name. I've had this condition since I was in kinder garden until now (i'm 20) but still don't know why I have this. It doesn't matter if I eat too much or too little or nothing at all, I always regurgitate multiple times during the day.

I used to do this. It's mostly subsided, but lord that was a gross period of my life. Couldn't help it, though. 

My feels go out to people with this condition because it fucking SUCKS.

i saw this episode on tlc (not sure what show) of a lady who once choked on a piece of meat and almost died, so after that she could never eat solids. she would eat them but she would kinda do a spit/chew thing, but if she tried to swallow it, she would just involuntarily throw it back up. sad.

There was a girl in my treatment program that had that.  Would have felt bad but she was super attention seeking and possibly the only person in the world that annoyed me so much.  that being said, im sorry you guys go through this :(

Yes a girl in my ip treatment had this but she had a lot of body checking and other habits that made them think she was just anorexic with reflux but she always said she didn't give a fuck about what she ate, she would always get the most calorific thing on the daily menus

Ironically, this is actually how mine started. But me being the ill and regular binge/purger like I was, thought "hey, I'll work on this, maybe I can start vomiting without my hands". And voila, here I am now.
