On Tuesday I have a doctors appointment, and I am going to tell him that I am Bulimic. Questions.

1. What is the best way to go about telling him?
2. What will his reaction be?
3. What will he do about it?

Thanks,
Ricky.

Erm, you're telling your doctor about your illness, not admitting to a significant other that you've been cheating. Just do it.

2. Holy ****!
3. *cuts your penis off*


Good luck

I remember my first erection. I went to my dad and was like "Do I have Aids???". I seriously thought there was something wrong with me.

At least you're admitting to it, and sounds like you want to get better. Just be straight forward with him and tell your doctor. Answer any questions as truthfully as you can, and most importantly, listen to his advice.

simply tell him. pretty sure hes heard worse things in his lifetime as a doctor

Just be honest. Say you're worried, etc. Anything you might think... you're not sure, you don't want someone to find out and so on. I don't know what he'll do.

Just do it buddy, it's good that you're actually trying to tell someone.

Though maybe don't say 'i'm bullemic', that's his job to say what is wrong with you, and doctors don't like people self-diagnosing, and it also displays an awareness of the condition and then they think you are a hypochondriac (i've run up against that one)..

So just go in, and say waht happens, what u do, symptoms etc, and let him help you. He's not allowed to tell anyone else without your permission, so don't worry about that, and he SHOULD be understanding, and do his/her best to help you. He's probably had a fair few people come to him with the condition before...

Good luck bud

1. I would just come out with it, when he has nothing else to say
2. Surprised, but he will listen
3. Refer you to a bullimia specialist who can help you

thats my best guess anyways
#12
Thanks, guys. Does anyone have any clue as to what he will do about it?

Good luck.

He'll make you see a dietician. Horrible patronising people who make you log everything you eat for a week then give you a new calorie-filled diet to stick to, and make you keep returning to monitor your weight.
#15
I don't know what he'd do about it 2bh...i'd wikipedia it if i was you, get an idea... maybe a therapist, or psychiatrist? i'm not sure i'm afraid...

Good luck though!

Don't forget the counseling sessions and such....

I've never heard of a guy suffering from bulimia. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, it's just rather strange.

It does happen, I won't swear that is less common, though.

It's just not as common. Although I haven't known a guy, personally, that was bulimic, but I knew a girl that was. Attended a group counseling session with her for support and although the group was primarily women, there were a couple guys there too.

i doub't he'll care he's a doctor after all, its not like he'll go "lol n00b" he'll understand, if he was an evil abstard then he would have been out of a job for a long time

if its a normal physical, just bring it up when he weighs you. a good doctor should give you plenty of room to just throw out any concerns, so as nickporter said, just tell him the symptoms and such. i wouldnt say "im a bullemic."

and good for you, getting help

I've got it too, and a few people I know have it. a lot more guys have it than people think...but thats really because most of the time you really only hear about girls having it..I never understood that..
