    Hi Neefer! Well, I have been checking out your site and thoroughly enjoying it! Loved the pics of your family and the sycamore tree! You’ve given a lot of great links that I have briefly looked at and bookmarked to return to later (after I have done my chores!) I am curious about something and would like your opinion. Seeing that your struggle has been with bulimia; do you think that a person who just overeats and doesn’t purge would also be considered to have an ED? I went to a counselor several years ago and when asked why I was there I stated “Why can’t a reasonably intelligent woman control what she puts in her mouth?” Pretty much sums up my problem my entire life. I have been seeing said counselor about every three weeks since then. Have done much discovery about childhood (not the best) and how neglect has affected me well into adulthood. Also discovered I have bipolar II and am now on medication and doing well with that. I know the depressive end of that was a huge factor in my overeating (or not eating the right things). I’m not any thinner than when I first started seeing my counselor, but I believe that is just due to the fact that I need to follow something where I have some accountability to someone. Thus, as I told you in an earlier e-mail, I have joined Weight Watchers and am doing quite well, being down 15 lbs in my first month. I am learning about portion control and what a balanced diet should be and it feels good to look in my fridge and see healthy foods! I enjoy the weekly meetings and also the on-line support. So I think I am headed in the right direction. I will continue to visit your page, as it is quite inspirational, even though our problems aren’t quite the same. But I suppose not all ED’s are created equal, huh? lol! Thanks for a great site and the chance to comment. Have a great day!
