I've been binging and purging for I think 6-7 years now. Cannot believe it's been this long. I definitely forever have heart palpitations even when I go a while without b/p'ing. My teeth are filled with cavities and they are so sensitive to any temperature. That's about it for now. I'm lucky that I don't have permanent issues with my gastrointestinal system (that I didn't have previously).

5 years


my front teeth are getting pretty translucent and my digestive system seems pretty unhappy with me most of the time but other than that I'm very functional, never get sick, etc.

Like 7 years at least but not constantly. I've been trying to recover many times in between and also don't do it as often as I used to. My main side effect was weight loss and my period stopping. I've had no real side effects other then my digestive system being fucked up until I got used to keeping food down. Now everything is back to normal. My teeth are actually pretty good according to my dentist (never had cavities or anything else, for some reason they also look completely normal). But that's just the physical things I got lucky with. Psychologically I still have a fear keeping too much food down, a distorted body image and lack of self-control.

You can’t change the past, but you can create the future. :wub:

I did constantly for 10 years then I developed heart problems (they’re gone now). Now I just do it a few times a month usually when I go out to restaurants.

No real side effect other than a small heart issue that was fixed after a couple months and high blood pressure that comes with purging.

It started when I was 12, I'm now 23.


Two of my front teeth are chipped, I have gastric reflux, I sometimes purge bright red blood, I have ulcers/stomach pain, I've had arrhythmia for a while and don't know if I still do but I do get palpitations often, I'm either having diarrhea or constipation but there's no fucking in between. Luckily, I don't have gastroparesis or any serious teeth damage yet and can't really purge HS yet.

The better part of 8 years now, tried to recover endless times amd had some breaks in between bit never longer than a few months.
I have no side effects until now. Can't go hands free as well. I'm lucky, I hope I can stop before things get bad

The longest I’ve gone is a few weeks. If it’s once a week or less I consider that recovered lol.
