My doctor at the hospital says I am bulimic but all I got is a pill to make me hungry? Is that right? Sorry for asking so many questions but I just found this forum and now I kind of want answers to things that have been in my head for so long.

I wouldn't think that a pill to make you hungry will really do anything. Bulimia is as much a psychological disorder as it is a physical one, if not more, and I would think that a solution would require more then a pill to make you hungry. If you are throwing up after meals, being hungry isn't going to solve it, if anything it could just make things worse.

Do you have anyone you can trust that you can talk to about it? I find that that always helps, at least a little bit.

All the best!

I absolutely agree with the above poster. A pill that makes you hungry is not going to help you at all. Definitely find a trusted adult and tell them ASAP, or go back to the doctor because it won't be beneficial for you. Best of luck to you x

That makes no sense.
You need counseling/therapy.
You could start with a school counselor.

The only thing I could imagine is that a pill which makes you hungrier, will only worsen you and not help you! You might want to see a psychologist who specialises with eating disorders. Also, like someone said, a school counsellor is good too. They can refer you.

Your doctor is as shallow as my parents; they only saw the physical, not psychological side of the ED... :(
