Would You Believe The Bulimic?

There are many out there who are completely unaware of bulimia as a eating disorder. Any other words, there are people who are so likely to believe that a person can have bulimia at all. They may say that it is just in your mind or that your purging just because you ate something bad. I guess most of this is because bulimic, like many other eating disorder victims, go about this disorder privately.

But seriously, just because you do not see the problem happening right before your eyes, you should not dismiss it so easily. Take the time to listen to a person who actually claims they have an eating disorder at all, because it is often very hard for people with eating disorder to come forward and admit to it. If you are not sure how to handle to situation, talk to someone else who can give you advice on how to go about helping a person.
