I am struggling with binge eating. All i do is eat all day and all night. I wake up and I eat, I go to bed and I eat. I think about food, dream about food...it is my life. It just seems easier to eat then to do anything else. I have no goals or dreams, i suffer from depression, and need some support from anyone out there

I felt so sad ready your post, you say you know you are depressed, have you sought help for that? You are eating to sooth yourself from emotional baggage you have. You need to rediscover who you are and what things you enjoy doing maybe it is things you have not tried but think you might like. get out and meet people. Make little goals each day and by making a couple of positive steps toward your goals you will see that you are a beuatiful person and deserve to feel and be happy. I wish you the best

stop binging- eat healthy food, like fruit and veggies and lean protein with the occasional snack
and get motivated about life again- get a goal for yourself and push yourself until you achieve it- and don't quit

I have been battling an eating disorder for 20 years. About two years ago I began an eating disorder group. Today I can say I'm about 95% better. I went for quite along time, longer then even I thought I would go, but in the long run it was worth it, I was worth it and my son was worth it. The form of therapy I took was called cognitive behaviour therapy, it really worked for me. I think what's so frustrating and what makes us feel so powerless against this disorder is that it has so many layers. Please don't feel like your a failure, I think for myself I really had to learn what the layers where first before I could beat the problem. And for me, one layer was Anxiety. Take care of yourself, and treat yourself.

I know how you feel. I have suffered with an eating disorder now for 13 long hard years. I am yet to recover, but I don;t know if I ever will. I am obsessed about food and that is all i think about it seems 24/7. Have you been to a therapist yet? It may be a worth while thing to look into. I find when i have someone to talk to it helps. Also, try distracting yourself with something other than food such as crafts, a good movie or look for a job-even volunteer work. good luck!

Hi, I have the same problem. I started college this year and have been binging and purging and I am really depressed. I have no freinds here and dont even want to be here. If you want to talk email me at [email protected]

I love food with all my heart. It is all I think about!!! The first thing I think about when I wake up is ....what will I eat today? 

Name: Jen | Date: Nov 20th, 2005 7:10 PM
Anne - I am the same way. It is to the point where I hate the way my body feels. Now ,just shifting my ass on the couch is heavy, walking makes me breathe heavy, I avoid going out because none of my clothes hide me, and I can't even look people in the eye. But I still lock away in my room and eat for 8 hours straight...

I am overweight, too. Maybe it's boredom or procrastination, but I just can't seem to want to do anything but eat and nap. I get started or motivated to do something, but then get too exhausted and overwhelmed to follow through. I feel like I've been just going through the motions of life for 10+ years now.

I can identify with your pain. I am here for the same reason. I am dealing with over weight (extremely) problems with my children, marriage depression. The only thing that makes me feel better is food. Now my health is being to suffer, I can't afford to take time off work to deal with it with a counslor I just need someone to talk to and support me.

After googling eating disorders and coming across this forum I realized that i too suffer from binge eating. Food is all i think about. I am constantly planning meals, counting calories, and dieting. When i begin to feel anxious or stressed i binge. I eat until im literally sick to my stomach. That follows with a sense of hopelessness, its a viscious cycle. I can completely relate to what you have written. Any advice? 

Name: unsatiable | Date: May 7th, 2008 11:45 PM
I may not be of help to you but I certainly can identify with your issues. I have been depressed beyond comprehension since I have gained steadily 50lbs.. in the past 8 years. I am not approved for weightloss surgery unless,I pay outta pocket which is impossible really..I am actually selling my house so I maybe can muster the cash for lapband.. isnt that pathetic? i have become a hermit.. by choice.. due to no clothes.. the reaction from friends & family..like i dont see it myself in the mirror.. Im 5foot 1.. and now bigger round than tall.. let me know if sharing helps you.. I think it will help me hopefully

i have the same problems alot of you are talking about. i used to be able to control how i ate...i would go 6 days a week on my eating plan of 1890 calories and working out for at least 60min a day and then have 1 day of eating whatever i wanted and not exercising. however, since about september i haven't been able to stick to once a week and i binge eat every few days. i think i might be depressed too and this pattern certainly doesn't help! i want to get back in control and stop hating myself.

i had my bulimia under control until i had a severe auto accident totaling my firebird. now im back to cutting myself and bulimia. no one in my family understands. i am now seeing a head shrink. i am apparently depressed....no kidding. all i do is cry sleep, and binge until i puke.

Sounds like depression. Please get help - this is a treatable condition and you aren't likely to get what you need, from what you describe, here.

Hello all, I am very sad to hear about your disorders which all seem very similar, but I know for each person i something entirely different. Doctors and Psychologists are right in saying that will power can cure all eating disorders, but they typically fail to understand simply knowing the name of the disorder does not mean they can cure it. You have to know yourself to understand what you can do to fix your own problems. If you feel like your disorder is really hard or a simple reoccurring nuisance is totally specific to you. Don't let someone tell you to go on a diet or eat more. You have to get to know yourself and your body.

I have been gifted with a high metabolism, but I grew up eating junk food and fast food. I have over the past few years changed my food intake from meals centering around pizza and fried chicken to baked chicken and tuna. Did I lose lots of pounds? No because of two things. I am working out and building muscle which is good. The problem is that my dieting, my bad history in food tastes, and my tendency towards depression do cause me to think about food all the time. Usually I can get by on two snacks and two meals a day, but sometimes (varying from a few times a month to a few times a week) I suddenly have to eat alot. Sometimes I simply have to eat more of what I'm already eating as of late I have been having a problem with waking in the middle of the night to eat sweets. I am not saying that my eating disorders are greater or even comparable to the ones that you all have. 

Name: shadyrob | Date: Aug 2nd, 2008 3:11 PM
I am just saying that I know what you are feeling. Like you have some monster of a disorder that no one but you will ever understand. And for the most part, that would be true, but I am convinced that everyone and I mean EVERYONE can overcome their disorders with cognitive therapy. I in fact wish to help people physically and mentally working as a physical trainer and a cognitive behaviorist. Learn yourself. Know and understand your gifts and curses. Your abilities and disabilities. Stop thinking about what your are going to do tomorrow and think...if I wasn't going to wake up tomorrow what would I do with the time I had tonight. I have starting using that concept to keep myself motivated and keep myself positive, and bit by bit it is helping me. With this last long message I end saying, Don't give up! EVER!
