Binge Eating Disorder and My Personal Experience

Binge Eating Disorder and My Personal Experience

I recently had someone question me as to why I write about binge eating disorder when all I have in relation to binge eating disorder is personal experience. I’m not a doctor, an eating disorders expert, a binge eating disorder therapist or a sociologist. So why should anyone listen to me when I talk about binge eating disorder? I asked them, “Would you rather be in the passenger’s seat with someone who has studied driving for 12 years or someone who has been driving for 12 years?” I have binge eating disorder personal experience.

I’ve heard enough negative feedback about my body to last me a lifetime. And now, if you want to say something negative about my body, any part of my body, prepare for me to say something back. Negative comments with binge eating disorder should be fought.

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.
