There is no easy way to start this post, but I’m ready to get it out there. So, I have Binge Eating Disorder also know as BED.
There are several misconceptions around what exactly it is unless you deal with it or are a medical professional. Most people think people who have BED just eat because they want to eat but that isn’t true!
In my case, I emotionally eat because that’s my only escape. I normally binge by myself because I’m ashamed of myself. I have had so many people say to me, ” If you don’t want to eat just don’t eat.”
Those people don’t understand that it’s your brain that tells you to binge every time and it’s something that gets to the point you can’t control it. A battle that I face is weighing myself because that is a trigger for me.
Most people with BED including myself decided to go on a diet very frequently. Food is something I am constantly battling and trying to fight back and food is something I am constantly thinking about.
Binge Eating Disorder is something I will face the rest of my life, but I finally decided that it’s not going to be what I plan my life around. I hope y’all enjoyed this post.
If you are battling an eating disorder just know you aren’t alone!
