"Hi Abigail,
My name is Melissa and i'm 13 years old. My classmates and I are doing a essay on a topic that we thought would be interesting to us. I picked eating disorders and my idea was bulimia. I have learned so much about bulimia and what it can cause you. It is very sad. You website helped me out so much! It is so sad that 9-12 year olds can get it! I have learned so much and your website really wanted me to go farther. I know that I will never think about going bulimic from what I have read in your articles! Thank you so much!
