What It's Like to Be a Sufferer of Binge Eating Disorder

September 19, 2015 2 min read

What is it like to live with Binge Eating Disorder (BED)? Being addicted to food is an all-consuming, life-hindering issue that can cause sufferers to feel completely alone and totally shameful. Many find it hard to admit to such a disorder. It becomes a secret. You bury yourself deeper in lies, letting family members fight over who ate their leftovers, while you sit back pretending it wasn't you, all the while knowing something scary is happening: you have no control over yourself anymore. You find yourself saying that you will no longer allow food to consume you, sometimes purposefully putting yourself in situations where other people are around and can witness if you begin to let loose. But the entire experience hurts your mind, and somehow, someway, you make sure you're capable of getting your hands on every item you told yourself you couldn't have. binge eating While other addictions, such as alcohol, are widely known and understood, food disorders still lurk beneath the surface as something many don't warrant as a real problem, whether it be the person experiencing it, or the people around them. But when you lie to yourself, your family and your therapist about it, something is definitely up. When you can't stop thinking about food, when you can't stop yourself from eating until you throw up, then there's something going on. For one woman, she found that it was being able to truly put in the work and admit to herself that she had a problem that set her free, while also working to create self-love throughout the process. "I think the most important lesson I have learned from this addiction is to be patient and kind with yourself. But you must be tough on yourself as well. You have to make the changes and put in the work to finally create the life needed to stop the habit. Read books, join groups, talk to people and get therapy. Start building a better support system and a stronger inner self, whatever you think will help solve the problem. As long as you are continuing to fight, know you are not hopeless. You are stronger than your addiction," a writer for Elite Daily noted. Do you have advice for those struggling with this disorder? Source: Elite Daily Do you follow us on Instagram?
