Seeing My GP/Crisis Intervention Team in an Hour. Should I Tell Them This?

Question by Mouche: Seeing my GP/Crisis intervention team in an hour. Should I tell them this?
Today I got the tape measure out of the kitchen drawer. I measured the circumference of my thighs, hips, chest, arms and neck. If I look back over my measurements since last November, I have generally taken off 5 inches all over. I promised myself 6 by my wedding day. With 5 weeks to go, that is still another inch. I know I can – I will achieve that if I reach the date.
So I looked at the measurements. I took an old pair of trousers out of my wardrobe and slipped them over my running shorts. Fair enough, they were huge. I know that I wore them when I was at my heaviest weight and even then the seams were loose, because I would rather squeeze into a smaller size than buy new clothes. Without even realising or thinking, I had taken myself downstairs, grabbed a pair of scissors, cut them to shreds and collapsed in tears on my bed. I took the longest strip I could find and tied six knots inwards from each end. I measured the last knot so that it was exactly an inch and a half smaller than my neck circumference, and put the strip around my neck. I turned off the phones, and turned on the TV. Every 5 or 10 minutes I tightened the material so that it was closer and closer towards the smallest point. I eventually got to the knot which was before the cut off point where I knew I would probably stop breathing. I must have measured or counted wrong because I then found myself waking up with the cats asleep on my chest and legs.
All I can think about now is that if I had gone that one knot further…
The thing is, I do not want to die. I just wish I had never been born in the first place. I am not so naive as to think that if I did die, nobody would be affected. I have just seen firsthand what death does to a family. What it looks like. That is why things have changed today. I don’t think I would consider slashing my wrists with a kitchen knife, as I previously thought. It’s too messy. Although I must admit the thought of drawing blood at the moment is particularly appealing as a form of release, nothing else.
I desperately want something to change my mind. I want there to be something, someone in my life that makes living seem to be a slight advantage, but at the moment I am so riddled with guilt and self-loathing that I can’t see it. Maybe that is what separates me from the rest. I really, really hope that I find that something before it is too late. I don’t want to reach the last knot, but I’m coming to terms with the fact that it is a possibility.
I have been diagnosed with Bulimia in the last 6 weeks, having suffered from in for 11 years.

i understand where your coming from to a point personally i think u should talk to your GP about this, you should probably ask about counceling. also i think that the stress of losing weight for your wedding is partly be a factor but it is important that you talk to your GP first and good luck
