    Binge Eating Disorder

    Anybody have it or use to have it? I use to be worse than what I am now since I discovered meds that help my anxiety & moods better. My big reason for it all. Felt as if only food only made me happy & the only thing I got happy for yet made me feel like crap at the same time. I still have those feelings sometimes but I'm recovering and trying to manage the weight.

    I'm glad to hear that you are recovering from this!

    Have you found anything else that makes you happy and supplements this urge since this post?

    Yeah I had a binge / purge EDNOS. Didn't quite fit criteria for bulimia because I compensated for binges mainly with exercise and undereating. I got better in my early 20s for no particular reason. I think it was down to brain maturation and developing better impulse control so I managed to break the cycle.

    Yes.
    But for the first time in my life I feel like I have control over it, as I no longer binge on food ( junk food) .and everyday was a struggle with food,
    I no longer feel guilty after I eat. And my life feels slightly easier because of it. My body feels better
    We are the walking dead
