Now isn’t that weird. I have only three suitemates, and I suspect that one of them has bulimia. There’s only a one in ten chance that I’m right, but if I am may I dare say that it would be hilariously ironic? Especially since I work so hard to hide all my behaviors from her.
1. She buys tons and tons of food and eats a lot of it in one sitting
She actually has a bin full of food. Boxes of cereal are splayed out on the carpet.
2. she worries about her weight
So much, in fact, that she has a scale, and she weighs herself every day. She also has a weight goal of 120 pounds, despite being much taller than I am. She’s constantly telling people how fat she is, and how she needs to lose weight. When other people tell her she looks great she sort of gets a down look on her face and laughs like she knows we’re being sarcastic (which we’re not).
3. I’ve found stuff on the toilet that I don’t think is from me.
And don’t worry, it’s not that disgusting, because it’s not on the seat part so I don’t have to sit on it. I mean, it could be from me, but our bathroom is cleaned every day courtesy of the lovely dorm janitors, and sometimes I’ll go in there after it’s been cleaned and see definite bulimic stuff. Also (this is really gross but…) sometimes there will be food floating around in there. Like, I’ll go in to go to the bathroom and the toilet has ramen water in it, which makes me think that she flushed it and didn’t come back to check that it all went away. Of course, she could just be throwing out the ramen water, but why do that in the toilet?
I’m probably just delusional. But I’m going to watch her more closely and if I get definite proof that she’s bulimic… actually I have no idea what I’d do. But it would be interesting!
