I am so tired of this off again on again eating disorder. Why can't it just stay or go away completely? I mean it would make my life a lot easier if it did one or the other. It was gone for a couple of months and then yesterday I was supposed to start a diet but I didn't so after I ate I wanted to purge but I couldn't. Now the starving is back too. I ate a yogurt and that is all I have eaten well and I'm drinking a sunny d but the thing is I open the fridge and I see fruit and I love fruit but I just say nope I can't have it and I shut the fridge. I am obese and disgusting and don't deserve food. I just have no idea what to do given it's only been a day and a half but it is coming back but I don't know if I think it's a bad thing or not. I'm just confused ugh.

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

I can relate so much! It really is so annoying and stressful. I'll take anything! I just need some consistency.

Hey there,

I totally know what you're going through. I switch back and forth like that too. I'm glad you're able to recognize the patterns, enough to know when you're slipping up. You said that you were good for a couple months. What made you become better? What helped that? Maybe you can evaluate those things and apply it to whats going on right now? Learning how to stop the behavior shortly after or before it happens is important. And even if you still have slip ups, you're still making progress simply by acknowledging that slip up.

Let me know if you need anything!
