One Man Blogs About His Struggles With Bulimia

One man opens up and starts a blog to share his story about overcoming bulimia:

“Angelo Henderson never thought taking the “easy way out” would result in his teeth chipping away and hair coming out in clumps.

“It may seem like a quick fix, and you may feel good at the beginning, but 10 years later, your body’s going to suffer those harsh realities,” Henderson said by phone from his Los Angeles home.
