Restore Balance after during Binge Eating, Restricting and Anxiety Relapse

Restore Balance after during Binge Eating, Restricting and Anxiety Relapse
Return of binge eating, restricting and pervasive anxiety: a call to grow

Waking up with anxiety and tempted or acting out eating disorder behaviors days, weeks, months or even years after being free of the behaviors or even the desire to act out is shocking. If this is you you may be feel disheartened, weak, frightened and uncertain of your worth as a person. 

You not only experience this anxious state in the present. You remember all your past experiences, the trials you thought you healed yourself out of with psychotherapy, group work, reading, 12 step, maybe residential treatment. Was it all for nothing?

Understanding the cause of your reaching for your old coping style and what you need to restore your balance helps you through this challenge. Pay attention to this call and you can move into a healthier, stronger and more satisfying way of living than you ever had before.

Your Binge Eating and Restricting Healing Journey Guidelines

Binge eating and restricting food signal, and hopefully invite the individual who suffers to undertake her healing journey. If this is you and you accept the invitation to recovery, you are about to start your healing joourney.

The guidelines are in Tutu's quote. I add that the missing sentence in the middle covers the journey.  It's the second act of a three act play where challenges are faced.  Here what is  denied is exposed., This is where your courage and determinatin bring you to your genuine truth.  You increase your ability to trust and love.

Bulimia Tragedy Behind Her Façade: Eight Questions for you

Bulimia Tragedy Behind Her Façade

No awareness of binge eating risk

Mary's story is all the more tragic because it seems that neither she nor the people in her life had genuine information about the dangers connected with weight gain, weight loss and eating disorders. The focus today is too often on appearance and not about the real needs of a human body or the risks associated with eating disorders and types of weight loss programs.

Her story:

 Mary was obese in the 6th grade. I wonder when her obesity began? Obesity is not necessarily an indication of an eating disorder, but it is a signal that something is amiss. Someone made a comment that supposedly triggered her bulimia.

Days After Christmas: Were you alone and binge eating?

  • Were you alone and binge eating? 

              A bell alone can still ring.

Binge eating for Christmas companionship

People who binge eat often isolate. Was that you this Christmas? Were you alone? Did you go into a cave and wait for Christmas to pass by? Did you hope for phone calls and invitations that didn’t come? Did you binge and watch TV?

It was worse this year because of Covid. You couldn't go to a movie by yourself. You couldn’t go to an inperson  OA meeting or a 12 step marathon to be with people, even if you didn’t know them.

Going to a seminar or workshop so you could be with people celebrating in a way that blended with the workshop theme was too risky this year.

Some of you got sick and stayed in bed under the quilt with hot tea. Some of you wrote letters or wrote in your journal.
