Oh wow. That really sucks. :( I'm sure they'll realize that they're wrong soon, even if they don't believe you when you tell them the truth. Congrats on the recovery, at least. :D

@17, I laughed hard. @OP: I remember seeing you in moderator world. I assume you told your parents what happened... but of course they didn't believe you, did they? Hate parents like that... rather than take their child's word for it, they'd rather ship you off to a counselor. It's nice that they obviously care for you a lot, yes, but since you JUST RECOVERED from anorexia and were at a healthy weight, assuming you had actually turned to bulimia was a bit of a dick move. FYL for sure... but

tbh if I was a parent and my daughter just recovered from a very serious eating disorder and then she throws up her meal I'd send her to counselling. people with eating disorders are notorious for lying and deceiving people they're close with about their problem and OPs parents would know that. err on the side of caution, at least they care.

Wow that really sucks. Hopefully you can try and get them to understand that something you ate made you throw up.

Good job recovering from anorexia, (if good job works in this situation...) Just try and explain that it was food poisoning. =/

You don't get food poisoning during the meal you eat the tainted food. It takes several hours to a day for vomiting and/or diarrhea to kick in. The "and" condition is my favorite.

Pretty sure that's the whole point, that she went home and then puked. If she chucked up at dinner it'd be evidently involuntary?

Ah yes, the "and" condition. Where you have to decide which one you'd rather clean off the floor. Fun times. It is entirely possible that her stomach rejected the food because it just couldn't handle it. We don't really have any way of knowing what condition the OP is in. She says "lots of recovery," but people with anorexia are often very bad at knowing how much recovery they really need. And 4 years is a long time to starve your body.

yougetmecloseto, Actually, we are both making assumptions that are not stated. I was of the impression that she vomited right then and there at the dinner, and you assumed she did so hours later. There is no indication of what the time span between the celebration and the puking was.

That's why the 300 character limit on FMLs is a complete FAIL. Everyone has to make assumptions because there's rarely enough detail in them

Just prove to them later that you are fine by eating and not puking. (try to pick something easy on your stomach) Good Luck.

They made that diagnosis within a few hours and watching you puke ONCE? Just stay home for a week and prove to your parents that you can eat your food and keep it down.

Wow, that sucks. Congrats on the recovery part though. I know it's really hard to give up your anorexia.

Ah... Feel for you. Try to prove you can eat without throwing up? #7 I know what you're on about, everytime I'm not hungry they tell me I'm going to go back to hospital! OP, congratulations on your recovery!
