I refuse to lie at MEPS, but do I even have a shot?

Hi everyone. I'm brand new to this forum, so please excuse all my new-ness.

I fully plan on enlisting this coming summer, after I have completed high school. (Currently 18, HS senior).

I was hospitalized in November for drinking, and had to get my stomach pumped etc, and it was brought to light in my family that I was bulimic. I went to treatment in mid-January, and was discharged in mid-March.
As I've said, I refuse to be dishonest and lie MEPS because I know they would eventually find out anyway, and I don't want to start my career in the US Army off with a lie, or end it with a dishonorable discharge.

Since I've been treated successfully, and now could pass any psych eval with flying colors, is there any sort of chance I could get a waiver? I know everything I've stated is disqualifying, but I'm curious. An Army Officer friend of mine (first lieutenant) told me that I shouldn't tell them because they wouldn't find out, but I don't like the idea of lying.

I don't want anyone to sugar-coat anything, just let me know if I have any sort of a shot.
