  1. I think this is a great site and will refer it to my doctor and co persons in recovery. I just want to remind everyone that Bulimia is not a gender specific problem. I do believe that males just have a much harder time admitting it. ( Like the old joke of not being able to ask for direcions when lost. ) However there is a healthy movement on this planet to start recognizing this issue and develop some tools to encourage males to address this issue.
