My Struggle With Binge Eating and How It Ruined My Life

 

Binge eating disorder (or BED) is a serious eating disorder in which you frequently consume unusually large amounts of food and feel unable to stop eating.

I’ve been struggling with binge eating for a few years now. I don’t remember exactly when it started, but it came about after years of restricting to the point of worrying about being over 100lbs. I restricted so much that I started eating anything at any point to have enough calories in the day. That lead to continuous snacking, which eventually lead to binge eating.

I’m sure my depression helped along with that as well.

It’s very much a mental health issue as well as a physical issue. That can cause problems because it’s a lot easier to beat physical ailments than it is mental ones, at least for me.

But the point was that I had gotten to a point in my life where I was able to power through the hunger pains and eventually they just stopped happening altogether.

But I’ve only been dealing with binge eating for the past 5 years or so. I used to be one who restricted and restricted badly. So binge eating is the complete opposite of what I was used to.

This turned my life upside down.

I’ve been dealing with alcoholism since college, but it wasn’t until 2014 when I hit my lowest of lows that I stopped drinking altogether.

This is my story.
