my docter said something interesting that is an obvious piece of information but really meant alot as do most things people point out to me through this disorder as its often things i have forgotten or become clouded...my docter said to me that every single disorder or behaviour we take part in starts with an urge be it triggered by something bad, a change, stress or sometimes for no reason at all besides habit, it all starts with that one urge...he has challenged me to try and confront my urges before i let myself slip into that zombie state of mind where nothing will stop me from forfilling that distructive behavious (eg. weighing myself to much, binging and purging) to do this a way he said he wants me to try is instead of trying to ignore an urge and panicing as i become incredibly anxious, i am to acknowledge what is happening and try to settle myself from following through - a way of acknowledging it is to when i feel discomfort or a pull taking over to sit and write down what is going on eg. i can feel a niggle to binge..and start to question myself what are the positives/negatives of giving into this urge? what do i think i will feel like if i give in? what will i gain by not caving to it?..he said also go and do something i enjoy or call a friend etc for a couple of hours delay the urge and if i still feel desprate to address it then but at least ive tried...this all sounds so simple but the anxiety that is associated with fighting this ED is so strong in me i become an emotional nut case the more i stand against what ED wants...im hoping that this will work atm im willing to try anything, hopefully it helps some of you if your willing to try it :)...i just want to know if anybody else has any new strategies to combat those horrible times when you are being pulled into your ED?...wishing you all a lovely day thank you for listening :), luv bec xo
