It is highly desirable to find a good psychotherapist who specializes in eating disorders. If there is no suitable one in your city, you can find a practitioner on Skype, it is usually cheaper.

But, as far as I understand from the VK profile, the problem is your age.

If you have there is no way to get help from parents, at least on the scale of money for psychotherapy, then I would advise you to look for more or less scientific or popular science texts about bulimia and eating disorders in general, stories of those who recovered (below I attach two publications with wonderzine, just the first thing that came to my mind was that the truth is mainly about anorexia, and not about bulimia, in my opinion), as well as options for free psychological help - a hotline or at least a psychological community (I also attach a link to the community of psychological help in LJ, maybe maybe if you describe the situation in more detail, the community will be able to give good advice).

As you probably already understood, the problem comes from the inside, so you need to thoroughly delve into yourself, understand in what area of ​​life you have a discord at the moment, be it family, work, relationships or something else, and try to work in the direction of eliminating these problems in order to satisfy and calm your soul. Then you need to try in every possible way to accept yourself as you are, stop comparing with anyone in principle, and especially (the mistake of many) with models and girls from the covers, with the same success you can compare yourself with a local swollen homeless drunk, and in this comparison you will clearly win, but for some reason we do not do this, preferring to look at our inferiority in front of beauties. We want to be slim from the desire to please others, but what would not be the meaning of life, it definitely does not consist in swimming in attention and being liked by everyone, so can we let go of this obsessive desire? But this is all difficult, deep and so at once is not solved at once, so let's move on to the practical part, here you have bulimia and you ask: "What should I do now, at the moment, I am lost, what should be my actions?" As a person who has experienced this, I can advise on my own: 1) read more information on the Internet about the colossal harm of this disease and the destructive effect of vomiting on the body, and after that once and for all promise never to do this again. Let you eat at least all the food in the house, let it be difficult for you to breathe, calm down, lie down, but digest it, and the next day you yourself will not want to eat, the body will receive the trace elements it needs and you will no longer be drawn to gluttony. 2) do not forbid yourself to eat sweets or meat, rolls or butter, but on the contrary add foods to your diet, you feel that you are losing harmony in your diet - go and buy something unusual, for example, cereals that you have never tasted before or a new interesting one vegetable and eat. 3) remember all the activities that bring you pleasure, hobbies, etc., remember all your friends and write to them, distract yourself 4) understand that your problem is a dirty thing created by you yourself from selfish reasons, do not dwell on it and do not sit thinking “what a pig I am, what a fat and nasty one I am”, think about others, about those whose problems do not depend on them, but on the circumstances, pay attention to your loved ones, imbued with their life and try to help others, especially relatives more. 5) if you are not turned away from sports, do it - and you will improve your figure and raise self-esteem, and a goal in life will appear, as well as some kind of control over it. If it turns up, it is better not to torture yourself, pay attention to the inner component, develop yourself as a person, read books, watch educational films or study something.
