A couple years ago I was purging because I thought everyone hated me and it felt like I was punishing myself. Now I keep thinking of doing it again but I don't instead I am eating less and less but sometimes I overeat. I don't know what to do.

Hello Brownangel. I am so sorry you feel like everybody hates you. That is a very horrid way to feel and must make you feel upset. Making yourself sick is really dangerous and I am relieved to hear you have managed not to do it again. It sounds like you feel very sad inside and you are trying to control food as you are not in control of how you feel. I think you could really benefit from therapy as it will help get to the root of your feelings. The first step would be to talk to your GP and say you would like to see a therapist and ask them to refer you to one. If it helps you can always open up on here too.

By the way, your guinea pig is adorable. :)

It is really hard to talk about how you feel, especially if you are unsure of how you feel yourself. I think a good counsellor will help with that by asking you the right questions. I do understand that a person needs to be ready for that step though.

Thank you for understanding. But I mean in the current climate I didnt think I would be able to get a counsellor.

Now therapy is done over the phone. I am having weekly therapy by phone myself. I do not know if that is something you would feel okay with as some people prefer talking face to face.

I found this link which explains how you can find a counsellor yourself.

Oh okay, do I have to call my gp to arrange something like this?
