I think I need to see a counsellor for eating disorders

Postby Playboy_bunny » Tue Jul 10, 2007 2:43 pm

Sorry, i posted this in the wrong spot before, so maybe Kate can delete my last one
I think the title says it all!
I think i might do some ringing around today and see if I can find a counsellor that specialises in eating disorders...the bingeing is getting worse...rather than most days or a few times a week, it is every day, sometimes more than once a day without fail...the binges are getting bigger, and IM getting bigger...before I joined this forum I had managed to lose weight (last year thanks to ww) and got down to 92 kgs...the bingeing has helped me go from 92 kgs in February to 117 (probably more, havent weighed myself in the last few days) in just 4 and a bit months...that is really scary... I am eating myself to death and as much as I want to lose the weight and get healthy I just cant seem to stop. I think i need to get some proffessional help...you have all been such a huge support to me..in so many ways...I dont have all that many 'real life' friends, and as much as I try to get help and support from my family, they just dont get it ( as much as they try to) My mum and dad think its a case of me choosing to eat like this, and 'eat less and exercise more and you'll be fine' they try to help, but sometimes it feels more like they are picking on me than helping, if you know what I mean? I think I have always binge eaten, even as a kid, but never to this extent...it got really bad a few months ago (to the point I cant control it) after a good friend of mine committed suicide... Ive had some other stresses too, but nothing all that major.. Anyway, I dont want to end up 200 kilos or dead...and I really need help...so yeah, thats the plan..Ill keep you all updated.

that sounds like a really positive step gracie :) sometimes the people close to us who try to be supportive just can't be because they're too close - if that makes sense? like, they think they have our best interests at heart but they're not objective enough.

let us know how you get on finding someone :)

hey gracie you need to do what is right for you. you know how important your health is and we know that your bingeing isnt because you are hungry. its an emotional and psychological thing. have a look into it and see whats out there to help you. maybe see your doctor, they might put you in touch with someone who can help.

make sure you still participate here though! you offer great advice and we would be lost without you :)

Hiya Gracie - sounds like a very corageous and sensible decision. I don't know of anybody off the top of my head and I'm not sure where you live, but I've been working on an article that points to the following site for sourcing healthcare professionals. If you're in Victoria, it could help:

Better Health
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Hey Gracie....you have to do what is best for you mate and we will certainly be still here to back you up and help you out...sometimes counselling is a good way to deal with food related issues, so it is good that you are going to see one....take your time in finding the right one though matey and as Kate said don't leave us here as you would be missed greatly.....

I wish you every success in finding a good eating issue based counsellor and also that they will be able to help you successfully through this time :D

Thanks so much everyone :oops: :)
i will definately be sticking around.. (hehe not getting rid of me that easy! :lol: ) Thanks for that link Milkyway, I am in Vic, so thats brilliant...I just found a woman who works through my local drs surgery (in conjunction with a dietician, so thats great!) but she is completely booked until early september :shock: so I think Ill keep looking and see if I can find something available sooner..or maybe just see the dietician alone for the meantime...Thanks again everyone :) xxx

Can the counsellor that is booked out suggest someone else Gracie?? She may be able to steer you in the right direction also... just a thought :wink:

Thats a good Idea Ally, I might give her another ring and chat with her (spoke to the secretary last time) and see what she thinks in the meantime :) thanks
