Monica: Hi my name is Monica and I'm 43 years old. I have been married for 13 years and have a little son his name is Isaac and he is seven. I deal with sort of call anorexia and bulimia unfortunately and I have been living with this for 27 years already and I have survived it, yet still to the day I have daily thoughts of eating color intake what my body just as to deal with and so it started when I was 16 years old in high school as a sophomore when my friends though of a great game and it was too see you can reach the higher counts first and I was having trouble reaching that my friend showed me how to put my finger down my throat and I was taught how to purge. They stopped the game and I continued it. When my teachers altered my parents, they took me to a hospital and I combined that with gaining some weight and then I went to bulimia and every since then that has been my prime choice of maintaining my weight. So it's pretty much where it is now and now we are going to the kitchen.
