My ED is really affecting me right now, so I feel like I may need to tell my bf because it gets in the way of lots of things in my daily life. However, we've only been dating a few months and I don't want to scare him.

I have been Bulimic since 1987.
I was most heavily in it until 1999. I have been in "recovery" mode since 1999.
I hope you will check out SFWED. com as it saved my life.
I can tell you the hardest thing I ever did was tell my wife. We had been married 6 years at that point and together for 11 years. But I had hit rock bottom. After telling her I told the rest of my family. The weight of that burden was gone and it was night and day relief.
I was able to get into therapy and find support groups. Trust me when I say that all of those "secrets" you think only you know about, we have all done them. It was great to be in a group that others understood what I was going through. The local hospital had both anorexic and bulimic support groups. Since they are very different disorders. Sometimes we had to combine them but it is best when they are separate.
Anyway, I understand what your going through and it is really difficult. It is something I still deal with almost every day, just at a much lower level then during the worst times.
Feel free to private message me as i can answer any questions you might have if you don't want to post them.1
