Default Trying to cope with or without food

Sometimes I just want to feel pain or just feel like I'm slipping away. So during the day I starve myself, maybe a slice of bread and tea, but I don't want to eat. Then at night I have this urge to binge eat. I just don't know how to cope...

Oh my, This doesn't sound good. I'm sorry I don't have better advise on this. I hope you'll get this under control for you general health.

I don't eat correctly by any stretch of the imagination. Just for different reasons. Just don't feel like eating some days. I have to force myself to eat.

Long term, this is not a healthy way to eat, of course you know that.

TearAway~Hope you don't mind my thoughts on your posting.

With the aspect of trying to cope with things to start. Have you considered starting a journal by chance? While it's just a thought/suggestion, it does give you an "outlet to cope" with things within your own life, kind of like this site does for so many. I even know, that you're able to start one here (if you feel inclined to do so) & there's a section for it. Maybe it's what's needed, so you're able to express yourself, be honest with your thoughts/feelings/emotions, & also be able to "seek or find" a different direction in how to cope with things within your own life.

Now for some serious advice here & hope you don't mind. As I'm sure you're perfectly aware of, not "feeding" the body correct can cause other problems. I will be honest here, with you, in saying that I've done damage to my own body by not taking "care of business" when I was younger. Now, being much older, I'm suffering, seriously(not going into things on your thread here), from lack of being good with my own body. I realize that things aren't always easy to handle & we tend to lose our "drive" to keep ourselves in "tact" when we aren't feeling the best within our lives. However, please take this advice & start trying to eat smaller meals more often. First of all, you'll be not only helping yourself, but of course your body as well. Our bodies are only able to tolerate or endure so much, without the proper nutrition that it needs.

If you're having problems coping during the day & are able too, come on here & post. There's so many kind/wonderful people & sometimes just knowing you're not alone, makes things a bit more "easier" to deal with during a difficult/trying day. Just something to consider & just know we're always here.

Thanks for the post! This site has been very helpful, it does help me to not feel so alone. Journaling is my life, I love to write! But sometimes its not enough. I'm in therapy too but sometimes I still feel down.

I do have a bad relationship with food, I'm working on it. But sometimes I just give in...

I will stick to this site and I hope the best for you as well! :)
