    Why is This So Fucking Hard?

    0
    God I am such a fucking spaz... I overdid it on pills today and now I'm just lying on my bed in a lot of pain. Why? Why's it so hard for me to like myself? I can't seem to get it right; I'm either bingeing or starving and chugging pills. I'm either not exercising or I'm pushing to the point where I'm doubled over and vomiting from post-workout pain. I feel so dead and empty right now... I want...

    Hello!

    I have struggled with binge eating and other eating disorders since I was a kid. My mom was very critical of the way I looked. She even convinced me to get liposuction at age 18. This was her "gift" to me. Now I struggle a lot with dieting and bingeing when I'm depressed, stressed, anxious, etc. I just got a new job and I can't even be excited for myself. Instead I eat and eat until I feel sick,...

    Constant Struggle

    3
    Hi all, I'm new to this group, but not new to anorexia. I've struggled with anorexia for just over 12 years now. I've never had any control over anything in my life, food is the only thing that I can control. I went to the doctor last week, dreading the thought of it as the woman is so judgemental. She doesn't treat me for anorexia, I've never exactly been treated for it. She comments on my...

    I don't like food

    0
    I used to love food! I would eat a lot of it because it tasted so amazing. But ever since I've been dealing with depression, I don't eat lunch anymore and I never eat breakfast. Thinking about how it feels to have food in my stomach disgusts me and makes me want to throw up. Whenever I eat, it's never satisfying. But I'm not underweight. I don't know what is wrong with me.

    2 months ago I was so happy. So incredibly happy about my weight and how strong and flexible I was feeling. I study away from home part time and every time I travel here my eating habits become very very unhealthy. It's a very emotionally challenging course and so the stress over it plus the loneliness and lack of motivation makes me stop exercising and binge eating like a crazy person. Lately...

    New and struggling to cope

    Hi, i'm sorry to bother you, but I'm new here and I thought I'd try this out for a change. I have struggled with anorexia and purging for about 5 years now (I'm 19), and it's pretty bad at the moment. My psychiatrist is going to have me do some more intensive treatment over the summer, but I'm scared. I just don't really know if I want to get better yet. Am I a bad person for just wanting to sort...

    Bulimia support

    2
    I'm starting to acknowledge that this is a problem for me... I'm looking for someone to talk to that can offer tips and resources online. It happens inconsistently and when there are big changes in my life, I feel out of control, or I'm avoiding my feelings. 30 years old, graduate student, accomplished, but I'm about to lose everything if I can't stop. I'm at a turning point. What first steps...

    Hi, new to the group here.  I'm a 34 year old female who has struggled with anorexia/purging since age 18.  I've been hospitalized many times but have also had strong periods of recovery.  Currently I'm struggling - restricting, obsessive weighing, and spending hours at the gym.  I'm just hoping to find some support and maybe some suggestions for curbing the exercise time.  Thanks and I'm...

    Anorexia

    I was anorexic all through high school, never did residential treatment (couldn't find a place that would allow me inside), just did the support group circuit and eventually got comfortable enough to start eating again...then, a very stupid doctor who didn't understand my struggle with anorexia put me on Seroquil...I was on it a month and gained almost 50 lbs...now I'm back to starving myself and...

    Battling Bulimia

    I've been bulimic since I was in college. Now I'm 28 years old and I'm still battling from bulimia. I purge more that 2x a day especially after weighing myself. Sometimes, I just end up crying after I purge cause I know what I did isnt good for me. And the same routine happens everyday. I go to the gym now. From 190 lbs, I am now 150. And i still feel it's not enough. I still wish I was skinny....
