If I eat I'm gonna purge - January 3rd 2014, 03:38 AM

So I know I have a lot of post on this forum right now and I'm really sorry for that.

Okay so I have only eaten once today around 2 or 3. I am VERY VERY hungry I don't wanna eat but I do but if I eat I am going to purge. And that is just a waste of food. So I am kind of screwed.

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Hey Frankie,

Purging will not make you skinny. First, you do not know how much you're actually getting rid of. Second, it only continues a cycle of restricting, binging, purging, restricting, etc. I'd really try to get out of the habit of it. When you have to deal with consequences of binging by not purging, but instead, living with the food you've eaten and continuing to eat as normally, you're less likely to do it in the future as you don't feel you can just "get rid of it."

You also need to be eating more than one meal a day. By only eating one meal, your body freaks out, and you feel more hungry and are more likely to binge later. Try eating smaller meals more frequently in the day. As I've recommended, really do talk to your counselor/therapist about your eating issues, see a doctor, and consider seeking a treatment team again. You're worth more than a disorder.
