This is the first time I have been to an online forum seeking support for my binge eating. I’m not sure of the cause of my eating disorder, but it’s causing my self confidence to sink lower everyday. I’m depressed. I feel awful. Every time I binge my depression gets worse. My health, relationships and work are suffering. I’m not in control of my own life.
I feel so helpless. And kind of strange telling all of this to people I don’t know. It’s making me feel decidedly vulnerable. Which is not a comfotable feeling. But so many of my feelings are uncomfortable, what’s one more.
I’m goin to try to quit bingeing. Again. It seems like I’m trying to stop everyday, and everyday I fail. But this time I hope it will be different. I’m trying to plan for EVERYTHING this time.
I have no idea if anyone will ever read this. I’m not sure if I want them to. But here I go, hopefully onto the path to recovery this time. Continuing to fail is killing me.
Hi, I am also new here, but wanted to let you know that I did read this. Maybe someday you’ll learn what the source of the bingeing is…maybe not. I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary to know whence it comes in order to start fighting it, though. I wish you (and all of us) the best of luck, and lots of strength.
Thanks for the reply. Nice to know there’s someone out there. I’ve been trying to figure out the source for years and have decided its just a waste of my energy. So instead of being stuck in the past I’m putting my energy towards the future Thanks for wishing me luck. Right back at you. Hopefully we can draw some strength from each other as well as from within
Hi I am new to the forum too. I feel just the same and I wonder why more help isn’t available from my GP. I was referred to a dietian last year she was lovely and she said I definately needed expert help. Any way it turns out beacause of where I live I can’t see a psychologist in my area. I can’t afford to travel over 30 miles and she said she couldn’t refer as it was a differant county.
Well I’m a stone heavier and I’am beginning to lose all respect for myself. Yes everyday I wake up and say today is the day I will stop over eating and stop having these binges that seem to take me over. I have a self help book and keep a diary that does help. I’m still not getting there though whats wrong with me?
