Great, great advice and a wonderful post. I often wish I could ask someone about minimising harm while purging but don't for fear of a negative reaction. I will definitely be trying the saline sinus rinse - I've been at this for ten years now and I cannot even count the amount if sinus infections/ tonsillitis I've had. Thank you so much.

where can I find electrolyte replacing drinks??? :/

and oh, do you think I should avoid caffeine completely?

I take 2-3 green tea pills a day, should I stop taking them?

I'm really happy to help everyone =]

 

Yeah, the candy thing shocked me at first, but I've seen girls/guys ask about it before too =\

 

As for the toothbrush thing, yeah it's really dangerous... Though so is purging period. I know a girl that accidentally let go of the toothbrush,, and it tried going completely down her throat. Scared the piss out of her, I only know her online, but I don't doubt her story.

omg.

I recently started using a toothbrush to help with bringing the food up, it seems really useful though so i dont know if I can stop using it.

I use both the toothbrush and my fingers. So Im not actually using the toothbrush throughout.

._.

 

They're easily found in gas stations, super markets, etc. Drinks like, Powerade(I get Powerade Zero, it's super yummy!) and Gatorade are fantastic for these uses.

 

Honestly, as hypocritical as it is for me to say(Because I basically live on caffeine.), yes I would suggest you quick them... However, I'd also do this slowly, because your body is probably addicted to it.

 

The saline rinse works really well too. It's helped me avoid plenty of sinus infections.

 

I hope you can stop using the toothbrush if anything.

 

I'm happy to have helped out.

Ok I love you for like saving my life one day (cuz I didn't know some of this stuff)
but the saline thing. How does that work cuz I honestly don't know if I could pit water up my nose... could I just blow my nose a. Lot? Cuz I do sometimes purge and it gets in my nose and its ugh...

You're incredibly welcome, love! =D

You know those nasal sprays? They're just as good as a netipot or rinsing your nose out with water. It's so quick, you really even realize it's doing it... It takes some getting used to, but it definitely worth it. The stomach acid can destroy your nasal cavities. That in itself can cause extreme complications. Blowing your nose by itself doesn't work well enough.

Did I answer your question? Cause sometimes I ramble, and don't know if I got to my point or not XD
