Woman discovers she is a binge eater

This is such good news.

A woman wrote to me that, to her shock,  she just discovered she is a binge eater.She is  looking for help.

I hope you can appreciate my gladness at her discovery. I'm not happy that someone has any form of an eating disorder. But when a person discovers that she has an eating disorder that discovery brings her the opportunity to gain health and happiness.

She now has an opportunity to stop criticizing herself about her weakness, bad character, and the other horrible and relentless judgments anyone who binges on food makes about herself. Once she knows she has an illness, a disorder with a name, she can move into her recovery work.
