I ate all of the chilli beef and I threw up.

Please note: my eating disorder has nothing to do with dieting or weight loss. It is about not being able to handle negative emotions.

I will try to explain why I throw up. It is about releasing negative emotions. After I throw up all the negative emotions are gone and I feel peaceful.

I really couldn't resist eating all of the chilli beef.

I think deep down eating disorders never are about the food or the weight loss, not at the root. Like you said it's deeper than that. It's good that you recognize what your ED is doing for you--releasing negative emotions. Now you just need to find something healthy to replace it in the area of coping.

I agree with @ape130. Have you found any other outlet that is able to serve as a release for the negative emotions? I know for some people journaling, music or exercise are some of the things that help. xo, j

Hi, I'm sorry I haven't replied. It's too complicated to talk about.

Do you have an eating disorder?

I'm not sure who you were asking, but yes, I have an eating disorder. I have anorexia. I've gone to treatment twice and have now been working on recovery in outpatient for 2 years

Not so easy to replace ed with something else..
I do agree with this actually. THe healthier coping skills don't work in the same way as ED. They aren't immediate and often all they do is stop things from getting worse but they don't make it better. But I guess that's the choice we face unfortunately
