    Hey everyone! So, I guess I'll share a little of my story and why I'm on here. I've been struggling with an eating disorder for 2 years. It started because I was treated terribly by a young man when I was a teenager. It later turned into an emotionally abusive relationship. For a year, I fought it but eventually, with the stress of starting college and my relationship, I gave in. I exercised...

    Overwhelmed

    Christ life is rough right now... I've been feeling like shit all week-- I feel drained, fatigued, exhausted, sick to my stomach, you name it, I'm feeling it. I had to call in sick yesterday because of vomiting and massive stomach pains (and no, I wasn't purging). Today I don't feel much better, even after working out (and usually, working out makes me feel moderately better). I'm so depressed--...

    I hate it

    I've gained 10 pounds in a week. No one can say I'm not fat. It's not true. I am. That's why I don't want to eat, exercise isn't enough.

    I wish it was easy to stop

    I went on a field trip with my book club to meet authors last Saturday. I was with my teachers from 6 in the morning till 8 at night. I didn't eat anything really and my one teacher, she noticed. During our lunch time everyone else was eating and I said I wasn't, I hsd eaten a little bit of a granola bar and I said I was fine. I wasn't. I was dizzy because I only ate dinner for days, little bits...

    How to find help

    1
    I have binge eating disorder. I have 15 years. Any treatment cost quite a bit. I've asked friends to eat healthy with me. Even told someone my problem from church but didn't get a follow up. I've tried OA. Here its very small and it makes me feel uncomfortable because they want me to read etc. Is there anyone out there I can check in with at the days end? I need accountability.

    My parents told me and my sister terrible news and now I am really upset and I feel like I have the urge to binge eat. One of my dogs she has a lump and she is going to have to have surgery. I feel heart broken and the urge to binge eat. I tried drawing and writing. I don't know, I haven't told my parents or sister that I am this upset. I just don't want to give in, I really love all of my...

    Moved to a new country, depression, more bulimia

    Hi, I am 18 years old and I have bulimia and anorexia since I had 14 years and I absolutely hate it but I can't go out from it. I moved to a new country and my family and friends are in my country. I am alone here and it is difficult for me to make friends. Only two friends from my country know that I have these disorders but I do not have professional help so I came here. I just purged and I am...

    First time coming out.

    I have been on and off binging and purging for one year now. It's taken control of me. It consumes my mind, whether it's what I'll eat, how I'll work it off or why I can't stop sometimes. I feel weak because I tell myself every time it will be the last time. I'll be positive and try new methods to distract my mind but I always fall into it the moment I am around food. No self control. Then I beat...

    Hi friends. My weight has always been yo-yo-ing. In the past I have restricted my diet, obsessed about exercise and eating healthy, and binged and purged. Last year, I lost a considerable amount of weight while developing the healthiest relationship to food I have ever had. But in the past months, I had a major increase in stress and now I can't stop bingeing. I have gained back most of the...

    Heya. First post. First attempt at reaching out. Not my first attempt at stopping though. I've now been suffering bulimia almost every day for 8 years. I am a full time athlete and make my living by being an athlete. I need to be light, agile and fit. But I also need to be healthy, and I have been trying for years to get healthy. But the longer I spend trapped in the vicious cycle of binge,...
