Hey. The header says most of it. I've struggled with either binging or starving myself. It's hard for me to find a balance between those. My mom keeps commenting that I'm gaining weight, which I have. I gained at least 13 pounds in 2 months. She comments on my weight but doesn't do anything to help and when I try to talk to her, she just shuns me. I feel alone in this and don't want to tell my boyfriend or close friends because I don't want them to feed me a shit ton of food or worry. I'm worried to start a diet bc I dont want to it end up starving myself. I just need advice. I'm desperate

:welcome:

have you spoken to a doctor about it
they might get you help from a dietician
there is also Overeaters Anonymous which you can contact online
that is free of charge , anywhere in the world

start learning about your relationship with food

I think the standard advice for increased appetite
is to up your intake of fruit and vegetables
to make you feel full up

which I do, I'm having only limited success with it really
but it could have got alot worse

My antipsychotic does the same and I either binge or restrict, it's hard to find that "normal" eating pattern. Idk. Sorry I don't have advice but I do sympathize xx
