    I’ve seen therapists many times and never found it to help/ If I’m on a good day when I see the therapist, it distresses me to focus on the negative – I want to enjoy my good day/ I ususlly end up leaving the session to go and binge because it drags me down.

    If I’m on a binge day, i can’t focus on the therapy sessoin. All i can think of is i can’t wait till its over so I can go and binge. Or I binge and cancel my session.

    My binging has taken over my life.

    My therapist I attended was just a few years older than me – I wanted a specialist not amateur. Anyway she made me start seeing my negative thoughts were not exactly realistic but afterward she put me to situation I felt I am failure which just got the things worse. Wastage of money

    Hi Binger,

    I’ve been on and off for years and always dreaded going. I would often binge out of anxiety before going and binge afterwards. It was always going over and over the same stuff. Andrew says that maybe I didn’t assimilate or put ideas into practice, but I think I did assimilate the concepts, yet the release of binging was too strong a desire and I have never found anything good enough to replace that.

    Even going shopping for clothes which wouls be my favourite uplifting activity, is not waht I feel like if I’m tired. Nor being with people.

    The only thing that ever made my binges a lot less frequent was when i fell in love or the first part of infatuation. but you can’t create that, unfortunately. I even registered on RSVP, a dating site, but I met so many men that I had nothing in common with and no spark!

    I used to be like this when I had therapy. the worst thing was it was located right next to a McDonalds, so I would leave and go straight in there and eat till I was sick near enough.

    But it was strange how without realising I gradually stopped doing this and I can remember the session clearly where I came out and just left and didn’t go and binge, I knew at that point that it was going to work and I could get to the end of it.
