I hate myself more and more, I hate my reflection in the mirror, my laziness to do my homework, my binge eating. I don’t know what I need to do now… .
Why do you hate yourself this much?
About being lazy and binge eating. I am sure you can change it.
I’ve been trying to change for half a year already, but everything is getting worse. when I tell others about my problems, they say: “just stop eating and everything will be fine,” “you’re beautiful.” No one perceives this as a problem. and I don’t have a friend to whom I can turn
If you have already tried I think you should see a professional he may able to guide you properly in that case. I know it’s hard but if you want to get better you will get better. Give it your best so that you know that you tried.
thanks for the advice. I really appreciate people who can hear and support
I am right there with you. I dont know how to change it. If you ever need somebody to talk to, i’ll listen as I am there myself.
thank you so much…I am pleased to hear that someone, somewhere by my side
Hi @irene, I am facing issues with binge eating since the past 1 year as well. I can understand what you’re feeling. I used to just go and eat 3000-4000 calories in one go without any control on myself and I couldn’t just “stop” even if I was full or even if I wanted to stop.
Then one day, I had it enough and decided that I NEED to talk about it. I called up a friend and spoke to him for 2 hours on the phone (and he was very helpful in just listening to me and was just trying to understand me) He didn’t even give me any solution but just listened to me while I was processing my own thoughts. It’s been 4 days since that call and touchwood, I haven’t binged since then (hopefully it continues this way)
I had even considered taking therapy and IF I will face the issue again, I will take counselling and sort this it.
I would suggest you to please talk to some friend of yours who would understand you or you can share your entire process and what happens with you when you binge eat and what do you feel when you eat (anonymously if you want) here on this site. I will be happy to help out more.
Also, try the ‘5-second rule’ that if you go to the kitchen and feel like eating something, just count backwards from ‘5-4-3-2-1’ and take the action which your gut instinct tells you to take (mostly it will be to go out of the kitchen since you don’t really NEED that food)
Hope this helps!
