I've recently admitted to compulsive binge eating. My problem, in addition to that, is that I had gastric bypass surgery last February. I never had a problem with following "the rules" after my surgery until this past October. Since then I've been compulsively binge eating, and it's hard, because there's only a small stomach pouch for food to go into. It's hard for me to imagine having this problem, after I had the surgery. I'm in therapy and I see a psychiatrist. I was just put on Abilify two days ago. I have other compulsive issues, other than eating. It's a really hard thing to deal with. I was trying so hard not to binge today, but I did. I ate most of a bag of Pepperidge farms Milano cookies, and about 3 snickerdoodle cookies. I mean, that's a lot for a small stomach pouch! My surgeon doesn't know about this yet, he'd probably kill me if he knew.....since he calls me "The Success Story"....I've lost 153 pounds in less than a year. The pressure for living up to the "perfect" bariatric patient is really super difficult and I could no longer handle the pressure. Has anyone else or is anyone else going through something like I am????? I feel so bad for bingeing......my husband and counselor would be so disappointed in me if they knew.
