o wow...um, if i were u, i'd go and seek counsiling...thats what i am doing and it helps yur self esteem. i am bulimic and i dont suffer the same type of eating disorder as u do, but they're both mentally in our head, so...im sure if u see a counsilor, it might help. or try going to a retreat. i ma in febraury with my parents. i hope i helped.
Hey, all I can say is seek some help. Try going to a library and seeing what books they have that may help. Sometimes those self-help books can be a huge help. I would also suggest a psychologist or psychiatrist's help.
My mom does something similiar to what you described, but I never really thought anything of it. I do suggest help though.
If I can be of anymore help, I'm always here.
Hi There, Thanks For Your Inputs, Although I Have Been To Every Counselor In This City And On Every Pill Out There, Nothing Has Helped, The Shrinks Act Like They Know Nothing About This Night Eating Thing, But Oh Well, Thanks For Your Input Anyway....
All eating disorders are the same in a way, no matter how they appear on the surface. all are linked to an underlying emotional issue that you need to resolve in order to sort out the eating problems. Have you got any counsellors available to you that specialise in EDs? A lot of EDs become more apparent at night, especially if you arent eating during the day.
This may be the most obvious thing in the world to suggest but have you tried eating 3 meals plus 2 snacks during the day? It is the recommended amount to keep your metabolism working as effectively as possible and can help to stop the urges to eat at night.
I know this can be hard but is there a way you can take all the unhealthy food out of your house? Or at least cut down on them for a while? I used to eat a lot at night so I asked my dad not to buy as much junk food, it worked cus I started bingeing on fruit and stuff instead which, ok, isnt ideal, but it was better than eating a tonne of chocolate each night until I could work on it.
Thanks So Much....i Have Tried Eating All Day So I Wouldnt Eat At Night, Did Not Work, Just Ended Up Eating Twice As Much As I Usually Do?? I Go Back To The Docs Tommorow..so Hopefully He Will Guide Me Somewhere,,i Know It Is Definitly In My Head, But What Is Causing Me To Do This?? I Just Am Soo Confused, Have Found Out Alot Of People Out There That Is Going Through The Same Thing I Am Though, So Im Not Really That Crazy...not Giving Up Yet, There Is Hope Out There, Just Have To Find The Inner Strength To Get It I Guess Huh?? Arrghh......just So Damn Angry And Ashamed That This Is Happening To Me, I Mean, I Always Thought Of Myself As A Strong Willed Person And Had A Great Career, Family...now I Am Not Working, Have This Disorder That Seems To Have Comsumed My Life, How Did I Get This Weak?? Okay, Well Rambled Enough...thanks For Listening Once Again.....
This is exactly how my bulimia started. I would get up in the middle of the night and raid the fridge and cupboards then wake up in the morning with wrappers and bowls on my nightstand. My sister even told me that she knew I was eating at night. Then I started just binging and purging. You do need to seek help for this before it turns into full blown bulimia. Just wanted to let you know that you're not alone.
