I used to be like you I will just take couple, thats all. And right now I am literally sitting in pain thinking my bowels are going to pop out of my body and running to the toilet every 5-10 minutes. I had taken a total of 60 laxatives throughout the day. It is SO painful and so humiliating. I really dont want to say this for it is embaressing, but I have shit my pants before while laying in bed because I was unable to get up fast enough a few nights ago.
Here are some alternatives:
-hot baths help stimulate the bowels
-icy hot on the abdomen (or any external pain reliever)...idk why but it stimulates the bowels
-and if your going to take a laxative do a more safer one like miralax...never ever screw around with things like ex-lax, dulcolax, or senna products (yes that includes the tea)

So, I was trying recovery for a few months now, and now I am back in the grips of my ED (restricting). I just can't stand not giving in to it. And now that I am no longer in school (psychiatric withdraw due to my PTSD) I no longer have that as a threat for recovering since I was under constant observation of my weight.
So yeah, here I am again. Allowing myself to get back into my ED ways....oh well, that's life for me
