bulimia nervosa about getting help

In bulimia nervosa there may also be ambivalence about getting help but the source of these mixed feelings differs. It is less usual for the person with bulimia nervosa to be encouraged to seek help by others. This is because the symptoms can be less overt and the most common time of onset is after leaving home. The individual herself is aware that her behaviour is atypical but is ashamed to talk about it and fears humiliation.

People with bulimia nervosa are usually eager to stop the binge eating but they may be reluctant to give up the weight-control strategies. This is because such strategies may be the first effective solution in a lifetime’s battle with body dissatisfaction.
