    ED is taking over my life

    Everything is in the title. I don't eat anymore, I used to eat only a bit when I was at the hospital but now I'm back at nothing. When I buy food, I throw it away on my way home. I can't eat, quite literally. I almost don't feel hunger anymore. But I'm constantly thinking about food, about...

    I want to.....

    Stuff my face with a massive pile of crap. Got a huge urge to go shopping for all the stuff I avoid (in quantity) & like a big "f*ck you!" to someone, eat and eat until I'm sick. I think anger + PMT might be to blame. I must stay away from the shops.... It wouldn't end well.....

    How can I strive for something I don't even understand?

    I'm sorry in advance for this rant but I really need to vent and just get this of my chest. Possible triggers. I eat normal until my head explodes with anger at the undeniable mess of a person that stares back at me in the mirror. I hate everything about myself, everything, and then I try to...

    Hello :) This last year I've been suffering with weight issues that don't seem to be getting better so need help or advice. I've always been slim, never had to worry as a kid what to eat and what not to eat. As soon as secondary school came and hormones kicked in I did start to fill out. I've...

    Hi I'm new.

    Hello there. Just need some advice. I'm obese. Always have been. But for the past year I have been binging and making myself sick. Before I would eat anything/everything, and then make myself sick, I thought I could control it. And I was happy. I got to eat all this yummy food, without putting...

    Binge eating or Bulimia?

    Well, recently, despite my weight (I'm fat), I have this circle where I go from not eating anything at all, only drinking water and then suddenly I start eating loads and loads of food and then after a while, I'd make myself vomit. I dunno what it is, I told a consultant when I was in a mental...

    I think about food ALL THE TIME

    I think about food all the time, and it's driving me crazy. What I can eat. What I can't eat. What's going to make me gain weight. What's going to help me lose weight. Food that I want to stuff my face with. And then I binge--ice cream, cheese cake, chips, chocolate, cookies. Food is like...
