Binge Eating - December 18th 2015, 09:08 PM

The most commonly known eating disorders are Anorexia and Bulimia, but what about those who binge eat uncontrollably? A part of borderline personality disorder is impulsivity, I sometimes cannot stop eating and then I hate myself afterwards. Like right now for instance. I see images of those perfect girls, which I would KILL to be. But instead I feel incredibly chubby, because I am, and I know it's because I eat so much! It's so comforting! I just hate this process so much !


the girl who always seemed unbreakble finally
BROKE
the girl who seemed strong
CRUMBLED
the girl who always laughed
CRIED
the girl who never stopped trying finally
GAVE UP

she let her fake smile fade and as she did a tear rolled down her cheek and she whispered

' i can't do this anymore'

Let me try and help ha Atleast for be a big part of bulimia is binge eating. (I haven't been diagnosed with anything just I don't everything a person with an eating disorder does. So I consider myself to have one.) I tend to either binge and purge or starve and purge ha.... Get the system? So, I believe that it could be a form of bulimia. For the fact you binge, and it makes you feel insecure. Any unhealthy eating habits are an ED. No matter how high on the spectrum they are. Am I making any sense? Ha Try and love yourself for who YOU are. Don't look at those pictures of "prefect girls". I know it's hard. I love my little sister to death. She is the perfect image of what a 14 year old should be. A gazillion friends, skinny!, star volleyball player. Soooo jealous of her. And we're only a year apart... So I am CONSTANTLY judging myself to her. But you know, it's taken me this long to realize I may not look perfect on the outside and I have a crappy mind. But my heart sure as hell, is freaking good! I care about everyone and love everyone and would do anything for people I care about. So, what I'm getting at is no one is perfect! There's always something someone doesn't have. You can have the looks and whatever. But do you have the heart? So if you feel like you aren't that "prefect" image. You heart sure is perfect! I know that. You have proven that to me. You ask me how my day was and talk to me like we're best friends! However, your still freaking gorgeous! So please don't hate yourself after you binge. Just try to control it like everything else. If you mess up, then hey! Tomorrow is a brand new day! YOU GOT THIS! You will continue to get better. You are amazing! And IM SO PROUD OF YOU FOR ALL OF THE PROGRESS YOU HAVE MADE! Once again, I hope this helped. Also! Anytime message me. Stay strong girlie! <3

Hi India.

Thanks for reaching out to us here, I know talking abut these things can be hard but you've done really well in doing so. Be proud of yourself.

I struggle with binging and I act impulsively because of my BPD so I can relate although never understand, to what you're going through. You say you find it comforting so my best advice I can think of is for you to find other things that you find comforting, for example I find getting into bed with a hot drink and a good film comforting or wrapping up in my baby blanket from when I was young or cuddling my cats. Could you try to find something else comforting like this?

Also you need to find a way to deal with this impulsivity. Because if you don't it will end up destroying you in one way or another and I'd hate to see that happen to such a lovely person like you. Do you have anyone to talk too about all of this? Maybe having someone to talk to and support you through this would help you and kits something I want to encourage you to do.

I hope this helps a little. Hang on in there.
Hopes and wishes,
Jessie
