tetris/internet porn/bulimia/biting/chocking - February 1st 2011, 05:04 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

okay, so i have this thing where i do all of these things without really wanting to.

for example, ill be at school, and ill get this incredible urge to eat mac and cheese. i tell myself i cant have mac and cheese because im at school. but its not just an urge, its a sensation. i feel the texture of mac and cheese in my mouth, i imagine what it would feel like, and i feel like i need to complete the experience. but i cant. ill tell myself that the whole day, and then the next day, until i cant take it anymore. then ill come home and eat a lot of mac and cheese, but then ill want to have another food in my mouth. so then ill eat a whole carton of ice cream.

when im done with the ice cream, ill get another urge: i need to throw up. if i dont throw up, ill get fat, and i dont wanna be fat. but then again, i dont wanna throw up. ive given up so much because i cant control my eating disorder. but then ill look at my hands, and theyll start to get fatter. ill look at myself in the mirror, and my body mass will be increasing by the second. so i get a panic attack and ill go upto my room and throw up everything. at first its not bad, but then the acid at the bottom of my stomach comes up, and that shit hurts. then ill keep on throwing up, until it comes up clear.

then ill get really horny. again, i feel this sensation of what it would be like to masturbate and watch internet porn. i tell myself that i cant, and try and do my homework, but i wont be able to concentrate. so ill go get something really sick to watch, and ill get off.

then ill feel a little bit better. and ill go downstairs to do my homework. but as soon as i get downstairs, my parents will need to talk to me. the whole time, ill be thinking about how ill never finish my homework, and how ill go to school the next day wihtout it, and everyone will be dissappointed, ill fail all my classes, and not be able to go to college. so to feel less stressed out, ill start biting my arm. if it gets really bad, ill start breaking things, particularly things made out of glass. ill throw them at my parents and theyll break.

once tehy leave me alone, i go on the computer and start playing videogames, right now its tetris. i really like the way you combine the pieces. so ill spend two hours playing tetris, trying to destress. but it wont ever work. i destress a little, but not enough. then ill need to sleep, but i wont be able to go to sleep because all ill be able to think about it what it would feel like to play tetris. how the pieces of the puzzle would combine, but the problem is that in my mind, they never dissapear. its really weird to explain. so i wont be able to take it anymore. ill get a belt, and choke myself until ive almost passed out. then ill lie on my bed for a couple minutes before i drift to sleep.

is this normal? i tried to explain it to my therapist and she helps a little, but its just too much stress. i try to relax but i cant. idk. what should i do? to be quite honest, the only thing that has really helped are opiates, and i cant really do those everytime i get stressed out. helppp

one more thing, my parents think i have a hoarding problem. i know it runs in the family, but i dont think i have it. hoarding is where you keep things in case you ever need them. i dont really have a problem throwing away useless things, unless it reminds me of a particular memory before i throw it away. for example, my mom will force me to clean out my room, and then ill find an old plastic ring a friend gave to me a really long time ago, but ill feel bad about throwing it away. so i keep it, even though ill never use it again. other people do this, right?

So, I really dont have a lot of experience with this stuff but, thought id help considering im trying to get off of my own addiction right now, video games. So far, I have found the best thing is to find things that take your mind off of it and make it so you physically cant do it while your doing the new activity. My example is I have started doing all my homework and reading instead of my video games, not as enjoyable but im getting something done and keeping my mind off of it.
It seems like you connected everything back to the eating urge and then the self-confidence issue after you have eaten. Honestly, stopping the urge to eat a specific food is probably going to be hard, try only keeping 1-2 servings of any 1 kind of food around the house. And if you do end up eating to much, try push-ups instead of throwing up, burn calories in a healthy way.
Once again, i am not experienced with this stuff, just throwing my opinions out there, hope they help you.

yeah, the food problem is the worst because i kinda cant live without food. i would only have 1-2 servings of certain foods around the house, but the problem is that i live with my family, who also have to eat their food. and i do normally exercise as a purging method, but it doesnt get rid of all the calories

ive tried doing things to take my mind off of these things, but it doesnt normally work, and if it does, i end up with another habit. idk.
