User avatar Please, see your doctor as soon as possible. he will be able to recommend a psychiatrist for you. don't be embarassed, your doctor is not there to judge you, only to help you. It is imparative that you see a doctor as soon as possible. Bulimia can lead to a lifetime of health problems if you do not get help.
