New to the Group
I'm new here. I started binging the past two years. Never had a problem in the past but now, at least every weekend, I binge. I'm ashamed but it's like I can't stop. I want help but not sure who to talk to so I thought I might start with a support group.
Has anyone here ever seeked out help and had success?
That's what happens to me too. I control my diet just fine but when I'm alone in the house it's a free for all. I try to tell myself not to but then I say I'll have just one cookie or one slice of toast but I always end up going back for more. I feel ashamed afterward. I wish I had an explanation why.
Maybe you are right about the abuse you suffered as a child. I can't say anything like that has happened to me, however my binges started a couple years ago when i started dating my bf who has a child with someone else. I hate using that as a reason but somoetimes it's so overwhelming for me because i wasn't ready for a situation like that.
I go to my first counseling session this morning so I will see what they have to say. I can let you know how it goes. Maybe what they tell me might help you too.
How was your first counseling session?
Yes I am also interested in how the councelling went. I am the same as some of you mention, only I think I have been doing this most of my life.
