For the last few years or so I havnt purged because Im afraid of the kids hearing...the few times I have my middle son (bless him) has asked if Im ok and brings me a glass of water and puts it infront of the door, I then have to say maybe I ate somthing bad etc..sigh :(


So Ive become more restrictive.  


When I do have a binge now when no one is home I find Im no where near as effective (I also had a tummy tuck 2 years ago now so maybe that has effected it too) dunno.


Anyway, just wanted to vent.

Was searching this and came across your thread. I've been purging in my bathroom but because I have kids I can't purge for longer than 5 minutes (10 minutes if they are busy watching their phones) but I hate it because I never feel like I've gotten much out. Like even if they are good blows. I've been thinking about purging in bags in the middle of the night but my kids like to sleep with me sometimes (they are under 5) and I never want them to catch me doing it because I don't want them to have strange eating habits.

I also stopped purging because I don’t want my son to hear. It’s really good that you’re aware of the importance of hiding your ED from your kids. I know it’s hard. Big hugs

I only have one kid so B/P sessions are limited to her naltimes when she can't witness it. I eat normally in front of her (normal portion sizes and let her share food with me) but I always get up from the table first and have my husband watch the baby in her high chair while I "use the potty" at the other end of the house.

Live your own life, for you will assuredly die your own death.
