Looking for Binge-Eating Disorder Buddies

Jpat0Jpat0 Member Posts: 201 Member Member Posts: 201 Member
Hey guys,

I have been struggling with a binge and purge disorder for over a decade. I have finally stopped purging for the better half of a year. I did slip up twice after a massive binge. I really want to stop making food at the center of my life. I don't mind doing it alone but I think it would be great to do it with a few people. One of the advice given to get rid of binge eating is to keep a journal about it. I was thinking of making a whatsapp group, where people who are interested could bond and also treat it like a journal.

About me:

I'm 28, 5'2'' and 190lbs. I'm a medical student that is constantly stressed, which is something I'm working on by doing meditation and yoga in the mornings. I might add runs in the morning but exercise isn't on the top of my priority list. I want to focus on my binge cravings first.

I hope some people will resonate with this and get rid of food addiction once and for all!

    Newbie, here, and you're speaking my language. I'd sure love a new friend or two as we all get through this together.

    Add me too! I have been in treatment for BED and purging and I’m trying to make sure my ED doesn’t get in the way of being healthy again.

    I’ve struggled with it on & off for over a decade. It’s exhausting; mentally, physically, emotionally. I’ve had fleeting periods of time when I’ve seemingly “gotten over it”, and the feeling of freedom is the best thing I’ve ever felt. I just haven’t yet been able to keep hold of it.
