Re: What will it take? Food addiction!

My dear fuzzy- I have seen your struggles and heard your pain, you need medication. It doesnt matter what you think your old doctors will think of you, you have to try for fuzzlings sake to do it.

Re: What will it take? Food addiction!

Yes!
also in the meantime, is there a specialist you could see about specific eating disorders?
I had said "nutritionist"; but perhaps you can find even better help?
Take care

Re: What will it take? Food addiction!

Have you considered getting professional help somehow? I don't even know what kinds of things are open to you in your country.

I feel out of control. I can't stop myself. It makes me feel stupid and angry cause I darned well know I should.
Yet here I am day after day over gorging myself. I can't get enough, and I obsess over it...hours on end I'll sit there in the middle of the night while everything's closed going over and over in my head what I'm going to eat the next day.

I'm out of control. And I don't think people take that as serious as I mean it. I truly am out of control. My last therapist suggested it was all part of me grieving my mom's passing...well...DUH! but how does knowing that fact help 1 stinking bit? lol grrrr

I'm also afraid though that there is nothing anyone can do for me. I'm responsible for caring for my own self...so I'm screwed. /sigh

...
I'm super hungry. I think after a group I just started ends today, I'm going to go to a place in my town that makes deep friend cheeseburgers. I should just do 1 or 2. But no...it takes 4 or 5 of them to fill my fat-a**.

This line of thought is no good. No good at all. I hence for BANISH it! I'm taking it off yours hands for you and will take it to a dumpster far far away to be thrown out where it can never bother you again!

Ideas like this are the kind of dangerous thing that can lead you to having a food addiction AND be an active smoker again. Imagine how miserable you feel right now because of the weight gain (I'm right there with you. I keep gaining weight too and and it's absolutely nasty stuff)...now try to think of going through all this while smoking. Ick The coughing and gasping and gagging and choking and cravings and painful throats.
NOPE! Not for me!!

Psycho I'm not planning to start smoking again. I don't even have any cravings anymore. Sorry, I didn't mean to alarm you. I just meant that smoking in some ways made my life easier. I had an outlet to blow off steam, something to help me relax. Oh..and I was definitely much much slimmer...maybe even healthier..

I'm not going to start smoking again. I know the first cigarette now would make me just sick. The second would probably be brilliant but I never ever wanting to have to go through quitting smoking again. That wasn't fun. At all.

I wonder if I need to approach quitting junk food the same way as smoking. I'm trying to remember what I did. I vaped for a few weeks but there's no equivalent to food..maybe eating carrots? Or apples? I like apples so that might work...

And then I started working out like crazy to combat the insane restlessness that hit me. I walked miles every day, went swimming, exercised at home, okayed squash...and then sprained my ankle and was on crutches for 3 months...

I can so relate..especially to.making plans to binge even while.om.berating myself about eating too much junk.

Maybe I need professional help but I really don't want it. I think I could do with.some really intensive CBT but that is neither available nor do I have the time for it.

Otherwise I visit try and get an appointment with my psychiatrists but apart from prescribing meds they are useless.

I feel so out of control as well. I hate that feeling. It's scary.

Re: What will it take? Food addiction!

This is sort of part of my personal theory that addiction is the "umbrella disease" and manifestations of it are the symptoms. For me it was alcohol and for you its food.
