I've struggled with my eating for the past two years. I starved myself, I puked, I binge-ate. I was doing  though, when I was starving myself. I'm 5'2-5'3.. was 95 lbs last December.. and now I'm 120 lbs. Which is absolutely fantastic. I do feel better, more confident too. But I am over-eating all day, every day. Please don't just tell me to go see somebody. I want to be able to eat a normal amount and be satisfied. I do have counsellors, but food is a very touchy subject for me. I know it's not healthy to diet when it's not necessary, but I want to be 110 lbs.. want to be able to eat a normal amount, tone up. I admit that I binge eat. I just need to talk to somebody..
Oh, I'm fifteen years old. eyes

Hi Young one,

Welcome to the healing well depression forum. What you need to do is eat healthy. I would get with a nutritionist and get some ideas from them. And yes, I am going to tell you that I think you need to see somebody too. A counselor. You need guidance and support and that is the way to get it. I am talking professional. We can support you, but we can't give out professional advice.

Another thing that you need to get healthy with is other things that you are putting into your body. We are not suppose to discuss drugs on the forum, but I have to say if they are the reason that you are not eating, that is a whole different story and you may need some guidance there too. But think about it. You need to make your eating a way of life. Not a diet, but eating healthy. Eating right also helps you to feel better. I was told to eat frequently, only different types of foods. And you learn to look at food differently. You don't eat for comfort anymore.

So yes, talk to somebody. Either a nutritionist or a counselor or your doctor. Or all of the above. Know that we care about you here. Also I am sure that there are books to read on healthy eating. So check that out.

Hugs, Karen

hi young one. depression certainly does go somewhat hand in hand with eating disorders. me t1 diabetic, magnesium, selenuim and vitamin d and iron deficient. my diet is complex, as i eat more meals more often. portioned. and due to being hormone deficient i need to eat healthy-but healthy where i live is somewhat expensive. am glad that you found us. you have been brave in posting, keep being brave, with healing compassion, jamie.
