I had a full blown eating disorder about 8 years ago beginning with dieting, then bulimia, then compulsive eating. I got well for some years ( I don't know how) and since then I've been up and down with my eating but never really 'natural'. I constantly go through stages and have no idea what these ups and downs are related to. Things are bad at the moment I'm bingeing everyday and sometimes purging and feel control and normality slipping further and further away. What causes these lapses and periods of being relatively OK? I feel on a slippery slope although I look fine on the outside, and wonder if I will ever be free of this. Is there life after an eating disorder? Can you get really well, eat normally, have a positive body image and cease to think about food? Has anyone overcome compulsive eating and thinking about food and how did you do it? I feel so sad to be wasting my life and my energy like this!
