Today i opened up with my boyfriend about my binge eating problem and he doesn't understand me. He told me something like "these days everything you have has a name, it's only in your head". I have made a big effort trying to talk to someone and i know he didn't mean to be rude, but it just seems like nobody close to me understands what i'm going through and i don't know what to do in order to feel better. I'm trying to diet and it's going ok, but when i have a cheat day, i just can't stop and i'm scared about where this is going....

Chelsea, so sorry the people in your life do not seem to understand, or be able to support you in your healing. I am glad you are here, where there are many people who do get it. (Big hug). I've been happily married for years, but when I was dating and I talked with dates about my feelings of sadness, or stress or just topics of substance, I heard the following. 1. "The sun will come up tomorrow." and 2. "Paralysis by analysis." Today, I look back and am amused at these thoughtless comments. At the time however, I needed to be heard and understood and they could not provide that for me. Let's just say, I did not date them for long. We deserve to be heard and known on a deeply personal level by those who are emotionally safe for us.

@Lisa22 Thank you, it feels great to know that somebody understands me and that i have support, that's why i take most of my problems here. All i know is that i want to be better and know that i can count on someone because this problem is important for me, so it hurts if someone close to me is acting like that... Thank you again for your advice

Chelsea, I am in the exact same position. My boyfriend is a loving caring person but for some reason he cannot begin to understand my problems or want to help me. I think he’s scared deep down. It’s horrible because I feel trapped with no one to talk to. Since telling him about my binge eating and laxative abuse it has got worse... the lack of support makes me feel even more worthless. I’m so sorry you are going through this but you’re not alone. Xx
