I started over-eating and throwing up because of some issues.
How do I protect my teeth because I've heard this habit is bad for them?
Stop throwing up would be a good start. Make sure to wash your mouth every time you finish other wise your stomach acid will peel your teeth enamel. Brushing or mouthwash even water works too.
make sure to throw up as fast after eating as possible. this way the food isn't "broken down" that much already. wash with water. don't brush your teeth or use mouthwash. that would be a combination that's too harsh.
chew some gum containing xylit instead.
make sure you drink loads of warm water with your food. it wil help to get everything up again fast and less painfully.
I'm sure you know the whole habit is fucked up, and it'd be cool if you could not do that.
Anyway, you want to get whatever comes up away from your teeth as soon as you can. Washing over brushing is probably best, since simply eating already weakens enamel.
Not much you can do for your throat, though.
It's bad for the following parts of your body:
teeth (decay of enamel)
esophagus (inflammation and potential rupture)
heart (electrolyte imbalances leading to arrhythmia and heart failure)
brain (high blood pressure)
You cannot eliminate the dangers. If you continue, it may kill you.
I want to stop but I've been feeling so much better since I have been dealing with enormous amount of guilt after every mean and feeling of being repulsive and ugly.
I know I'll have to deal with the health issues since I already have cold sores all the time because of lack of immunity and I'm sneezing all the time but that's something I have to live with.
I think the benefits outweigh the cons.
I can tell you from firsthand experience that it's not worth it. The consequences catch up quickly and having an eating disorder leads to MORE guilt, eventually. Once it starts to get bad, you'll feel WAY worse than ever before. And it happens fast, trust me.
It's a band-aid that hurts you. You need real help. Talk to your doctor or a teacher or someone you trust.
Eating disorders kill. But first they ravage your body and brain. They destroy you.
Your hair will fall out, your skin will turn pasty grey and your teeth will become riddled with cavities if you keep this up. The more you do it the harder it will be to stop. Seriously, find help.
Don't want to sound like an emo highschool kid because it's been a long time since high but I'm kinda struggling to stay sane a bit since I'm alone, I live with my dad but he usually just insults me when I try to talk to him and calls me names which ruins my week so I avoid talking to him.
I'd let you sleep on my couch if you lived in Canada. What about a shelter? I still think a doctor would be your best option. You may think it's too minor, but if it's driving you to this then it is serious.
You're worth more than this.
It's never too late, man, and if you can't see that, it's probably because you're living with an abusive dickhead.
Living with a roommate or two and earning a minimum wage isn't the American Dream but it's better than this.
