I've been bulimic for 11+ years and have not received treatment. now, my dad is a psychologist so i have perhaps a messed up idea of therapy...and i have also overcome a serious drug addiction, so i am hesitant to take medication for fear of dependency. see, i know that this all stems from physical/emotional abuse as a child. i've talked about it with many, confronted my abuser, and i feel that this is something i have come to terms with. i know that the automatic response will probably be "you need therapy/meds" but the question is- have any of you experienced a TRUE change in your disease from either? i mean, a radical change in the way that you deal with your problems and/or in your self image? and if so, what kinds of changes? my fear is that i will waste a lot of time and money simply to become co-dependent on just another crutch.
