Hey,

First of all I just want to remind you that weight numbers in the eating disorder forum are not allowed.

I know how hard it can be to stop binge eating. A lot of times when you have any type of eating disorder you end up binge eating at some point. If you are still actively restricting then I believe that maybe one of the reasons you are binge eating. Somethings you can do besides binge eat is, draw or write if you are into that, when you actually are hungry maybe go out to eat or make a meal and eat it away from the house that way you aren't by all of the food you hav where you live.

I also would suggest you take a look here, which is a link or alternatives and coping skills. There are bound to be some things on there that can help you not binge eat.

Since you have been diagnosed with an eating disorder I am guessing you have a therapist and maybe even a dietitian. I would strongly advice you to contact them and tell them what is going on.

If you ever need to talk I am just a PM/VM away.
Your Friend,
Frankie<3

Things have been much better today. No binge, no constant hunger. I’ve eaten perfect - not too little, not too much.

So Nice!

This is exactly how I am. I never throw up either, as much as I may eat on some days.

It’s so hard.
I’m so tired of my ED. It ruins everything.

Oh, believe me... I know that feeling too well.

Is there any treatment center you can go to for support? I believe it is important to have a support system in place while you are struggling with an eating disorder–anything, really–so recovery will be smoother.

Thinking of you.

You’re lovely
I go to treatment for my schizphrenia, and live in a care-home, so I’m not alone and getting help. Just feeling alone, tho I’m not.. you know?

I see that you're receiving care for schizophrenia but also feel alone, which is totally understandable, and it also sounds like maybe you haven't really confided in many people about your eating disorder, at least not your care team, unless you just haven't mentioned that it's something being addressed. If you are already receiving care for your existing mental health concerns, perhaps it would be worth it to ask if you can have the eating disorder worked into your treatment plan so that it can be appropriately addressed. It would likely help a lot

That’s a really great idea! I’ll try to mention it for them, cause this is too hard to be alone with!

Hey there,


Have you had the chance to talk to your care team? I think that would be the best thing to do so that they can incorporate eating disorder treatment into your treatment plan. Opening up about it might be difficult but you might find that if you are open with them about your eating disorder you'll feel less alone because you will have a treatment team rallying around you trying to help you get to a better place.


Best regards.

Hi

I'll try to talk to them soon -maybe tomorrow.
It's just hard to talk about my ED, when I feel like I'm too fat.
It's so difficult, and I hate that stupid disease!

But your support means the world to me. Thank you <3

Hey,
I just want to say that size and weight doesn't matter when it comes to eating disorders. I have been underweight, normal weight, over weight, and obese and still had an eating disorder.

I know it is really hard to talk about it, but in order to get better you have to. If it is to hard for you to talk about it, maybe you can write a letter to your care team to let them know you have this problem and want help with it.

If you ever need to talk I am always here for you. I really understand there. I have been dealing with my ED since I was 15 and am now 27.
Your friend,
Frankie<3

Thank you lovely
I know it doesnt have anything to do with weight, it’s in your mind.
I’ve had the diagnosis for almost 8 years. I hate this horrible disease..

Lucy, I have been struggling with an ED and body imaging since I was 11 years old. I am a Ballet dancer and body image is very important and at the age of 11 it became out of control important to me landing me in the adolescent ED Unit for the first time at the hospital. I would have a total of 3 trips to that same hospital until I was 13 years old. I know how difficult it is dealing with an ED. I am glad to see that you said you are doing better with your binging. I agree that keeping yourself involved in something and even just eating with others and having someone that is accountable at all times for you is really important. That was my mom when I was home. Now I attend a Ballet school far from home in a different country which throws a little wrench into things. I am surviving but it is hard. I keep myself really active with dancing and have a lot of dorm mates who without really knowing it keep an eye on me. So if you can try that.
