Please please don't get offended because I really don't want to offend anyone genuinely. If asking this is completely not okay then tell me that and why. When it comes to certain stuff my perception is pretty warped so 

 

 

I'm just wondering, as someone with anorexia b/p my brain can't comprehend binging and not purging it afterwards. Are there any particular reasons why you have explicitly developed BED and not bulimia?

 

This sounds really fucked up idk if I can articulate my thoughts properly, feel free to make me look like a fool

1. Because rumination disorder already sucks...
2. I don't want my teeth to become worse than they already are
3. The smell would trigger more purging

well, back when i had bulimia and would go from BED to bulimia and back and forth a lot of the time i just stuck with BED because purging caused major heart palpitations and teeth problems and lots of other health issues. so if i had to binge i'd just be like fuck it i'm not dying today, and try not to purge.

I don't know, I binge but my "purge" is I usually fast or just go back to restricting to get rid of the weight gain. I'm actually happy I don't purge in terms of vomiting because it just scares me to constantly eat and throw up and eat and throw up, just sounds so tiring. Bulimics trigger me and make me feel extremely Fat about myself which is why I never go into that forum. :/

I developed purging disorder after binge eating for years. There's a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge huge step and a lot of emotional turmoil that has to go down in order for you to go from binge eating for comfort to binge eating and learning to immediately shove your fingers down your throat.

Also there's a lot of other social and genetic factors to consider, my mom was binge-eater to bulimic, and I've always taken after her. Some peoples brains just aren't set up for the shit it takes to become bulimic. Like some people can go through traumatic shit and not develop ptsd. Neurological bullshit mess like I dunno I'm not a scientist it just Happens.

This is a great question tbh.

 

I am anorexic, but I do binge sometimes, but I know i dont suffer from BED lol my binges are like 500 cals max XD

 

Anyway, I do not purge because for me I care too much about my appearance and body to do that to it. Yes I want to be thin, but I care enough about my health to be attractive that I cannot bring myself to purging. It is a blessing in the curse :P

i have purged before. when i did do it, i would crave more, eat more, and think about food more than i already do. i would rather get over my bingeing than deal with eating and purging all day and the possibility of dying at any moment in a cycle that only gets worse.. lol

So don't you be offended in turn: Because Bulimia is worse than binging, vomiting is gross. Also you need to buy more food and get hungrier that way.

i never had a great gag reflex. in fact, i have eaten spoiled food a couple of times by accident, but never had to throw it up because my stomach is a real champion in keeping things down

 

i also knew that if i did purge, i would most likely use it as an excuse to binge even more. i already had one eating disorder, and i certainly didn't need another one

I used to binge without purging. My reasons were because I didn't have the urge to purge afterwards and I didn't want to get caught. When I started purging I stopped gaining weight, but that was the only good thing. My heart would beat weirdly, I puked up blood once, the stomach acid gave me rashes, also chances of getting caught. I hated it, so I understand why people wouldn't want to purge. Also I think it mainly has to do with having the urge to purge in the first place, some people just don't get it. I don't do either of these much anymore really.

I actually developed bulimia before I developed BED. Bulimia was hell and I recovered for a few years but when I relapsed I went to BED. I guess it's because I almost feel like I deserve to get fatter for screwing up and binging maybe?

hm, i have endos, i kinda go in and out of purging because my throat gets so bad, it causes a lot of breathing problem. 

 

i also get colds a lot when i purge a lot, and my colds lasts for a couple of weeks, complete with peeing during coughing... its just one miserable time.

 

i still -vomit-purge sometimes, but i purge via exercise now days.

I just think that purging is not useful for the amount of food I am able to binge. I just think: 'Today I am fucked up, I will fast tomorrow'.

I don't purge via vomit because it fucks with my heart, so I don't consider myself bulimic. I do exercise a ton after binging so I suppose I'm bulimic in that way, but more EDNOS. 

Please do not make it seem like throwing up your guts is a better way of killing yourself, because tbh we all are and it doesn't change a thing.

because the thought of throwing up terrifies me to no end.

 

and the one time i was immune to that fear, it appeared that i don't have a gag reflex

That's what I meant by "please don't get offended"; I'm not implying it's better, I was just wondering why given the fact that it eliminates calories and prevents weight gain 

 

Not my business? I'm not making you tell me anything, I was asking for a reasoned explanation to help me comprehend something that I found difficult to understand the reasoning behind so there's no need to be so fucking rude
