Unhappy honestly, i can't help it - December 21st 2012, 11:53 PM

its been about a year in a half since i starved myself 2 months straight...but ever since then..im binging, starving and yes even puking now. When i was finally getting control over my eating again i was fine and it wasn't until a couple months ago when all the urges and feelings came back. some days i don't eat at all, some i eat my favorite foods then throw them up and im even on diet pills...i just...i just don't know what to do i guess, i feel like whatever, where ever i go, food just controls me and my thoughts. I guess, i just need advice about getting back to a normal mind set...if thats even possible at this point. i honestly, don't even know what else to write..

Hi Kaitlyn,
From what you described it sounds like you may be suffering from bulimia. If you haven't already, I think you need to talk to someone about this whether it's a counsellor, family member or friend. Knowing that you have extra support from others is really important for situations like this. Try to avoid places, people and activities that trigger or encourage your bingeing and starving. Things such as fashion magazines can make you feel insecure about your body and make you feel you need to lose weight. The most important thing after these two steps is to stop focussing on dieting and receive professional help. Taking that step increases your chances of success at returning to a non food obsessed mindset.
Good luck and i hope I could help


I could dwell on my problems... But I'd rather make a milkshake...

To me it sounds like you're really struggling with this. What support do you have? Because I think it's really important that you include your parents or a trusted adult in on what's going on. They can help you to get the help you need. It's time to take actions into your own hands. Do no let the ED control you, because it will if you let it. You have to take the lead, because you're strong and you know how miserable this is. Fight this. I'm sorry I don't have much to say. I just think it's important that you get support and help for this. Talking to people is going to be uncomfortable, but you have to step outside of that comfort zone to get anywhere. Maybe write out everything and hand it to them? That could help out quite a bit. I think that it's important to put your all into recovery if you want to feel better. I also think that you are a strong person, and that you deserve to be happy and healthy. Hang in there, okay?

I am so sorry to hear what's going on. Are you getting any support from your GP?
