I am pretty sure we have tallked in the GERD Forum. It is so important right now to pull all the strength you have and stick with foods that won't set off your binging. Make sure all the products you buy are high in protien but sugar free. I understand the binge eating. It is different than other addictions as you must eat to survive. If you quit smoking or alcohol or other things you would survive but we have to eat and just a few bites of something you love puts you right back to an addiction of the food.
Everthing we do is centered around food, parties, weddings, going out to eat and the Dairy Queen calls my name.
I agree with Karen, therapy again may be your best choice. Remember this is not something you chose to have but you can overcome your binging.
WE are here for you.

Hello Night Wish,
I am sorry your not in a good place right now. I know food has always been my comfort too and my Dad used to buy me food if I was feeling bad.When I got my divorce, my Dad said I just needed a good steak and it would be OK... the steak was good but the husband was not so He exited stage left.
Breaking up a relationship is difficult. Grief can be experienced even when an unfulfilling relationship ends, because, at the very least, you have lost the emotional investment you made in that relationship. There may be a sense of failure, hopelessness, loss, despair, fear, or desperation. In many cases, the length of the relationship compounds the pain of loss.
I would like to encourage you to consider counseling to help you through this painful time. One on one counseling can help you understand your feelings as well as teach you skills to cope with your pain.
Welcome to HealingWell, know that we are here and we support you.
Hello there :) Here is my recipe for meditation.
Choose a quiet spot where you will not be disturbed by other people or by the telephone.Sit quietly in a comfortable position. Eliminate distractions and interruptions during the period you'll be meditating.Commit yourself to a specific length of time and try to stick to it.Pick a focus word or short phrase that's firmly rooted in your personal belief system. A non-religious person might choose a neutral word like one, peace, or love. Others might use the opening words of a favorite prayer from their religion such as 'Hail Mary full of Grace', "I surrender all to you", "Hallelujah", "Om", etc.Close your eyes. This makes it easy to concentrate.Relax your muscles sequentially from head to feet. This helps to break the connection between stressful thoughts and a tense body. Starting with your forehead, become aware of tension as you breathe in. Let go of any obvious tension as you breathe out. Go through the rest of your body in this way, proceeding down through your eyes, jaws, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, chest, upper back, middle back and midriff, lower back, belly, pelvis, buttocks, thighs, calves, and feet.Breathe slowly and naturally, repeating your focus word or phrase silently as you exhale.Assume a passive attitude. Don't worry about how well you're doing. When other thoughts come to mind, simply say, "Oh, well," and gently return to the repetition.Continue for 10 to 20 minutes. You may open your eyes to check the time, but do not use an alarm. After you finish: Sit quietly for a minute or so, at first with your eyes closed and later with your eyes open. Do not stand for one or two minutes.Plan for a session once or twice a day.
Good luck and keep us posted on how you are doing.
The info I have suggests first thing in the morning but I believe what ever time of day you pick is fine for meditation.
A time when there is little distraction going on may work best.
I wish you luck with the meditation and I am so happy that you have joined us.
