    Hello, my name is Elle.

    I will start out by being completely honest with everyone and hope that if you will accept me here, that you will accept me for me.

    I'm bulimic and I'm really sarcastic. I just had a really sad experience on another board because of those things and people not being able to accept them (silly to be sad over a message board...but you make some pretty good friends on boards, don't you!) and I am really looking for a place where I can be myself and still be accepted that way.

    If it's not okay that I'm here, please tell me so. I'm fine with finding another place to be, I'd just like to know it before I make friends if possible.

    Anyway, enough of my whingeing. I'm 27 and I live in Sydney, Australia. I work as a telemarketer, but that's just for while I'm travelling. I'm a Canadian abroad right now. I like to imagine that I'm not reeeeeally a telemarketer selling life insurance to unsuspecting Aussies.
    Umm what else...I guess it would make sense to look around and get a feel for the place, huh!

    Hope to get to you know you all soon.

    Hello Elle and welcome to minimins.

    I'm sure the members will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable but i do have to highlight that this is a weight loss support forum. If you are bulimic then you won't find many/anyone in your position.

    Hope you enjoy this forum xxx

    Yeah...I pretty much expected that. When you find other bulimics, they're in places people who are hoping to stop being that way really shouldn't be associating.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm guessing then that you want help for the bulimia? x

    Hi Elle
    Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you will meet lots of lovely people here. You are who and what you are and I'm sure everyone will accept that and support to the best of their ability. Sarcastic is fine as long as you consider peoples feelings and realise that some people on the forum may have vulnerabilities of their own.
    I hope you find what you are looking for.
    Gem x :)
