The bulimia was your valve

If the Stress has to be very pent up, and the spiritual Need is great, then you feel the hunger. Then she eats, and eats. As if in a Trance she stuffs a bunch of Chips, burgers and other oily stuff. This is your way out, your valve. The loops, and then going to the bathroom, where she throws up, until the stomach will bear, nothing more. So Eva Apfl reported it when they told of the time she suffered from Bulimia nervosa, a disorder that is Looking for bulimia-or simply bulimia. In 2011, at the age of 17, developed Apfl this eating disorder. In the following years, it is especially bad.

when the attacks come, do not know you. But you know that you are coming. Provides a saves money for the hunger attacks, buys, creates inventories. "At some point, it was time that I stuffed food in value of 250 Euro in me." In a single day. If the money is not enough, she eats bread, Ketchup, or raw Spaghetti. Then, according to the Essanfällen, the hangover.

she's been vomiting up to 15 Times a day.

Often you can't remember later on what happened. As you would have got knock-out drops administered. "Someone doesn't celebrate me at a Party, goes back and cleans" that describes the Apfl, the feeling the next day, when she sees the empty packaging and boxes lying around.

Nobody knows about your eating disorder. Apfl pays attention to the fact that nobody will notice something. Her roommate works in shifts, so Apfl is often home alone. After the vomiting she swallows the toothpaste against the smell. The display on the scale will fluctuate between 65 and 80 pounds. Apfl has slightly Overweight, on the surface it seems to be completely harmless. So the bulimia for four years undetected.

rollercoaster ride

your disease describes the Apfl as a roller-coaster ride. Time you eat for a long time very little and respects you exactly what it takes to. And then there are weeks, as they suffer days of hunger attacks. She's been vomiting up to 15 Times a day. Eventually, she admits that she needs help. She goes to the doctor and gets the diagnosis.

So Apfl will finally get to Anad, a supply center in Munich, Germany, operates group homes for people with eating disorders. 78 Concerned to find a place. Most of them are seeking women with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating with loss of control (Binge Eating disorder) or a mixed form of different diseases.

Vera Baumer, therapeutic Director and nutrition consultant, goes on the fifth floor through the hallway and enters one of the community kitchens. It is early in the evening. From the Radio, the Dexys sound Midnight Runners. The four women with whom the Baumer group is a meeting here, are already there. You are between 18 and 21 years old, and all of the anorexia affected. This evening you will participate in the therapeutic cooking: working Together to prepare a dish, in a predetermined time, eat together, and then Baumer talk about what they have felt.

Two of the women go to the stove. In addition, on the countertop, is a recipe that has prepared Baumer: Risotto with spinach. The other two women sit down at the table. A begins to peel bananas and mash. The other is employed in order to grate the chocolate. The two of them are for the Dessert charge. On the recipe banana quark-Stracciatella-Trifle is: "".

It even happens that people develop a real fear of food.

"This is also an Exercise," says Baumer, "something Unnecessary to eat what tastes good." Many people Affected by the case, it is difficult to eat only the bare minimum, not only for the hot meals. Then you poke around in the food, chop the bread, or cheat on the amount of the claims your diet plan. Seven tablespoons of cereal, a Cup of milk, a tablespoon of is honey for example. Or half a Bread with Nutella. It should not always be the Healthiest, explains the nutritionist. The main thing is that the women and girls expose themselves to the food and learned that it was good for the soul and not the body.

While cooking in the Anad runs this evening everything went smoothly. The women like it, new recipes, and because a therapist is to make you feel safer. "We know that with the recipe all fits in," says one. You think it's important to eat together, because in the case of many heavy. Baumer confirms this. It feel even, that people develop a real fear of food. You've already dealt with a girl who didn't want to come without the Mouth guard in the kitchen. Her anorexia had breathing been so pronounced that she was afraid, alone on the chef air calories.

in addition to nutrition therapy, psycho-therapeutic and socio-educational measures play in Anad an important role. The treatment concept can be used as a behavioural therapy to describe and not only on eating habits. This theme, while seemingly all Concerned, behind all other problems. Eva Apfl, it was primarily a low self-esteem, tells the 25-Year-old self.

for "real Empowerment"

It is amazing how open Apfl deal today with your story. It looks as if you've found yourself. A condition that seemed to be for you for a long time unattainable. She tells of the past, from their identity problems, to be always on the look out and to struggle with himself. What should I wear? Who I want to be? Where do I want to go? Added to this came the Stress on your occupational therapy education. You don't know exactly, that this type of training suits you. But she doesn't dare stop and look for something New.

With your at Anad occurs finally, an improvement. You will begin to listen to yourself. Then the liberation comes, when she visited for the first Time, "Diversity of Munich", a youth center for transgender, bi - and homosexual people. Finally, it deals seriously with their own sexual identity. So far, she thought, that it is to men. Now she is openly lesbian. According to the "Diversity"Meeting you is always totally happy, says Apfl. "Real Empowerment", empowerment. In the meantime, she is even on the Board of the Association. In the case of Anad, you get still social-pedagogical support, but resides already for one and a half years in a private apartment. Recently, she has started a new training to the Administrative assistants. You believe her when she says that it works this Time better.
