Needing someone to reach out to and understand.
I spent a good three to five years being anorexic and over obsessive about going to the gym seven days a week twice a day. Up pops all kinds of emotional strain and I fall into binge eating and purging again (something I started in 7th grade and continued off and on as a "safety net" when I would eat too much). I've finally told my family about my situation, but it has already been over a year since that time and they have done nothing but get angry with me over my situation. I need someone I can turn to and talk to who can really give me some advice or be there as a hand I can reach out to. If anyone could lend a helping hand I would be more than grateful.
I think you can find support here and also have you tried to check out meetups in your area?
I have but they are usually some miles away and I am without a car. I really do hope to find some support somewhere, since everywhere I turn I just hear the same old "just stop." You've mentioned I should stop dieting I recently stopped but I find myself just eating junk food and becoming more tired and lazy. I try to incorporate healthy eating but then I find myself automatically counting calories and try to avoid stuff and then I binge. I have been going longer without binges but when I do they have gotten bigger and on worse food. I don't know what to do.
I have been binge eating and purging for almost ten years now, during my anorexic years I would have big binges once or twice a month and after i kicked the anorexia i just turned hardcore bulimic. I also need to find someone I can talk to, someone who understands the struggle!
I am 28 years old now, I was anorexic from 18 till 20 and have been binge eating and purging since then. When I read people's success stories about overcoming this disease, they always say that finding support is one of the major keys to success. So I'll be here for you if you need someone to talk to. :)
