This has been going on for awhile now but I’m starting to actually notice now that whenever I know that I am going to be alone for awhile I eat a pretty good amount of food, and during/after I’m eating, I feel horrible. I’m always telling myself that I shouldn’t be doing this and if someone saw you right now they would be disgusted.
I don’t think it happens a lot right now, mainly cause I’m in college and have a roommate, so we are together a lot. If I do know she’s gonna be gone for the weekend or something, I know that I’m gonna eat a lot, and I can’t really help it.
I have looked it up and I think I probably have a binge eating disorder but I haven’t been to a doctor about it so I can’t be for sure. Also I don’t ever throw up after eating, it’s more of me just telling myself I shouldn’t have done that and feeling disappoint in myself.
I just wanted to post this to see if there is anyone who has gone/is going through something similar to what I am and suggestions on what I should do.

You are right, these are the basic symptoms of an eating disorder. You should go to the doctor once so that it will clarify to you if you have a disorder or not. Eating disorder is not that something that can be ignored. i would also like to recommend you to go to hypnotherapist cause hypnosis is effective and natural way that can help you without any side effect.

I was diagnosed binge eating disorder a couple of months ago, I'm definitely not an expert but I act exactly the same way, anytime I'm alone all I think about is eating and I do it until I feel almost sick... Then I feel terrible about myself, I don't purge or anything later either, I just feel miserable. It's very unhealthy and self destructive, please go see a doctor before it affects your life, your relationships or your family, you need to take control before it's too late, you can do it! :) take care x
