I comfort eat and compulsive eat.
The psychiatrist was aware of this for quite awhile.
(I saw it in my notes- unofficially at first)
Then we spoke about it.

Eventually I asked if there was anything that would help.
She said:- QUOTE

“Don’t do it”

I felt disgusting and a failure.
So I ended up eating more.

Thank you Lilou34, She isn’t suited to her job.
Many people have been upset by her.

Apparently there have been several complaints but she
is extremely efficient at “turning the tables”.
The patient is always wrong,.

At great expense I now go private.
But it is worth it.

Thanks for caring, Pollypop x

Looking on the flip side, it's hard to make progress without knowing what the underlying issues are which leads each individual to not eat etc. this needs a fair bit of work on those individual sufferers with this complaint to be able to communicate those issues, which I guess isn't easy ;) Without knowing those underlying issues I would hazard a guess that little progress if any can be achieved :hug:

Adults with eating disorders 'face appalling NHS failings'


This is not good. Lives are at stake.
Yes they are, I’ve had Bulimia since I was 13. It’s all on my medical records I’ve had treatment that didn’t work and I just stopped asking for help in the end. I’m 45 now, I finally plucked up the courage to ask for help I was attended O.A a couple of years ago and confided in my doctor that I was trying to recover myself but the my weight gain was making it so difficult and she referred me to SW. I couldn’t believe it I relapsed in a major way. I’m in recovery now, I’ve done this on my own, I’ve changed doctor but I want more help but I’m scared to ask in case the same thing happens again.
