I have to use a toothbrush. My fingers are too short and hard to use. Doesn't get the job done.

I use vinyl gloves when I purge(like the kind in food prep)
Is that safe?

This is a great post. 

 

Can I ask, why avoid soda? I rarely purge, but when I do I've found that drinking a ton of diet soda while eating helps the food come up faster.

you can use disposable food prep gloves so your hands and nails don't scratch or get ruined

I have found that this actually aids the gag reflex and as you said helps to prevent accidental scratches.

Idk if anyone has added this yet but I just thought of it in the bathroom...

Pizza sauce doesn't make your purge red. Food dyes and blood do, however, so be aware when your toilet turns red and remember what you ate and if it wasn't, call the hospital. ❤️ Be safe you guys

Thank you for posting this.

I was told the baking soda thing directly by my dentist.

Maybe it's just a messy process. Like burning a house to ash.

I tried to drive everyone away. So I could quietly burn myself to ash without burning them, too.

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.


This happened to me...so so scary. When I think about it I still tense up and it sends flutters through my tummy. And.that was years ago.

Just a quick question from me... I purge quite regularly, really regularly, I can't stand the thought of food in my tummy and gaining more weight and being bigger than I am... I feel my throat now is starting to hurt and I feel a 'burning' sensation for hours after... Is there anything that I can do to stop infections or burning? Thank you x

Can someone please tell me about how many times it takes for you to lose an unhealthy amount of electrolytes ? ( purging )
