I have only purged once outside my house... at a bathroom in a restaurant. I was really nervous about having left the table for too long. But came back and asked my friends if my make up was okay because and made the excuse that I had gone to retouch it.
I think I might need to purge in a public toilet tomorrow. I have to go to Sunday lunch party at my cousin's and it would be rude not to eat. Her house is not that big that I could slip away unnoticed and purge in the bathroom.
She lives VERY far from where I stay so I might just have to head to purge in a public toilet.I hope that I can get to a bathroom and purge before its too late Am actually considering carrying a bag with me so that I can go purge somewhere.
What are your thoughts on this, have you ever purged in a public toilet.

yeah, it was uncomfortable at first because i didnt want someone to barge in on me, but luckily they came in at an intermission. and i did today at a car dealership, no one was in there but i just let it all go, so just kinda time it when people arent around. and you can bring a bag with you but i think youre better off just going in the toilet directly. i guess whatever you feel comfortable doing.

Oh god i used to be so picky about where I purged, then I was like wth I'm doing it, who cares? Ugh not good at all.
I'm lucky, 'cause the only public toilets around here are hardly ever used. I've purged in public toilets before, but I've never had to worry about being gone for too long, or people walking in on me.
i do my thoughts are if they hear you or catch you who cares your in public it will probably be some stranger you never see again so does it really matter?
I agree with most, if someone walks in that you don't know, who cares. I have actually been forced to purge in public restrooms all the time cause most of my friends ask me to go out to dinner. I try to wait a little bit before rushing off to the bathroom once everyone is done so no one suspects me. (Cause I am always thinking that people are ALWAYS suspecting that I have an ED). But really, most people are naive and don't understand what we go through on a daily basis. So unless you have TOLD someone that you have an ED, they won't suspect. And if it takes you a while in the bathroom, just say there was a line or you had to mess with your contacts. Or don't make an excuse @ all unless someone brings it up! Just reengage in conversation like you were only gone for mere seconds.~ so sick but cannot stop
I have purged many many times in public, I used to go out for dinner with my boyfriend and roommate at least twice a week and purged every time in the public bathrooms. I honestly don't think they even noticed. I just acted completely normal. They would just go on with their conversation and not look at me funny or anything, and my boyfriend is EXTREMELY nosy, so if he suspected anything, he would drill me about it until the day I died. But nothing, I think we get paranoid because we feel guilty, and self conscious when we purge so we feel like everyone around us must know what we are doing. But really they just think you went to the bathroom, and if you take a bit longer than usual their just going to think you went for number 2s. I believe it;s all paranoia, unless someone does walk in then thats just gotta suck, but as the others said above, if you don't know them who cares, just run haha.Survivor of Bulimia - Supporter for those still suffering
I purge in public almost every day... I don't have a problem with it bc I found a bathroom that is rarely used and has a double door so I have some warning when ppl come in. If they do, I just stop and wait for them to leave.Sickness was fixing me some

Now that the damage is done
I'll never miss it at all....
It's not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live. <3
When I was in Uni, I purged ALL the time in the public restrooms. But I would do it on different locations on campus. I remember quite frequently, maybe, oh, 1-2 times a week going to the mess hall or the food court on campus to binge, then walking all over campus to purge. Luckily I didn't look like a total lunatic rushing from one building to the next, seeing as it was a University.
...Is it sad that I miss doing that? :\I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
I'm the same way...~ so sick but cannot stop
