embty but need help. - January 22nd 2016, 07:01 PM

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.

I love the feeling I have right now. Hunger pains and stomach growling and the feeling of the stomach eating itself. I love it I really do. But I want recovery I don't want to get into this cycle again. It's almost noon and I haven't consumed any calories since about 6 o'clock last night. I am so afraid of eating today because I ate too much last night. I ate soup and a bagel dog the whole day. I just I am fed up with this eating disorder. I fear that if I eat I am going to purge. Because I don't want to feel full. I just don't know what to do. Any advice would be great.

Edit: I ate but I'm still starving and I'm afraid when we go to olive garden I'm going to eat so much and purge.


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 sweet.

Sorry you're still struggling so much. I'm glad you've come to us here. I don't have a lot to offer but wanted to show you my support.

Eating is okay. Food is a right, not a privilege. You deserve to eat. And I'm not lying. Have you thought about planning your meals and snacks? Maybe this way you'll stick to eating healthily and avoid starving or binging. Also have you tried to write a list of reasons not to purge? There are so many reasons not to and having them there in front of you might be really helpful so that when you have the urges, you can look at it and remind yourself why not to do it.

I know this is really tough for you but honestly, you are so much stronger than this is and I really believe in you. You said yourself you don't want to fall back into our eating disorder so don't let yourself. Take control and fight it with all the help you can possibly get. Because you are not alone on this and we're here by your side fighting with you.

Hopes and wishes,
Jessie

Thank you Jessie. I ended up eating and not purging and so far today I haven't purge either so I'm really working on it. I was going to message you yesterday but didn't want to bother you.

Hey floss.

I'm so proud of you for doing so well and I hope you recognise you've done well and are proud of yourself too. Maybe you could treat yourself by watching a movie tonight or doing something nice tomorrow? You could have messaged me and you still can if you want too. You wouldn't be nothing me at all. I'll do all I can to help you and you don't deserve to go though this alone.

Stay safe,
Jessie
