Full Bulimia Episode Story in 5 parts: Caution could be Triggering Part 3

Part 3 Dangerous Sexual Encounter - a variation on the previous option

 This story is my attempt to bring understanding to this painful, desperate and all too common experience in the life of a bulimic woman. It could be triggering.  I wrote this because articulating the extent of a bulimic episode in detail can help a woman know she can be understood and accepted. If she can feel known in her darkest hours she may experience a new sense of hope and reach for her recovery.

Sexual Encounters as Part of Bulimic Episode

Body Image, Self Love, Self Respect and Tenderness

Developing a healthy respect for your body is part of eating disorder recovery.  The words are rather directive and cold, don't you think?  But the meaning is anything but.  I got a big reminder of this yesterday when I looked at the close up of the x rays of my lungs using the most up to date technology with a pulmonary specialist.
