A Binge Eating Disorder Day: Horrible, Terrible, and Troublesome

A Binge Eating Disorder Day: Horrible, Terrible, and Troublesome

Yesterday I had a horrible, terrible, troublesome, binge eating disorder day. My day was so awful, I spent all of last night crying and writing, writing and crying (Binge Eating Disorder and Art Therapy). I felt defeated, helpless, disappointed in myself, and like an utter failure. After a disturbed night’s sleep, I still don’t feel back to my normal, chipper self. But I got out of bed, put on a dress, went to the tea shop, and started writing this post.

You Don't Know My Binge Eating Disorder

You Don't Know My Binge Eating Disorder

I find it annoying to no end when someone thinks they know my binge eating disorder, all by looking at my body, seeing me eat, or reading a blog article about my struggles. It never fails that someone gains a superficial amount of knowledge about me and decides that they know everything there is to know about me and my binge eating disorder. It would be wonderful if we could know all there is to know about a person based off of a few facts about them, but we can’t. No one can. No one knows someone else’s entire history based off of a few interactions with them.

I’m doing my best to be body positive in spite of binge eating disorder.

Receiving my binge eating disorder diagnosis was a complete shock.
