  1. Hi everyone, I just wanted to pass on a tip from my therapist. I was starting to fall into anorexic remission, when they suggested trying microwaveable meals. They have small portions and almost always have all the components you need for a proper diet. This may be old news to some, but as somebody who has lived most of their lives without a microwave, this was inspiration. It is great not only because the portions are easy to get through, but you can also have food (almost) instantaneously. So when you feel a weak pang of hunger, you can pop some food into your face in about 2 minutes, encouraging your mind to listen to your body's queues. Hope this helps somebody get back on track!

  2. What medications have you found that have worked for binge eating disorder or bulimia? Topamax kinda helps, but I hate the side effects (depression, hair loss, slowed thinking, tiredness, etc....) and was wondering if anybody else had success with any other medications. Or if you've found ways to deal with the cognitive side effects of topamax? Thank you.

  4. Saw a few people mention this on the "what have you done that's impulsive lately" thread and thought I start a new thread on it. I have struggled with impulsive eating, since around the same time my bipolar symptoms started, generally in the afternoon/evening. I go through phases of different food cravings, some sweet, some savoury. I had always just put it down to "comfort eating" but now I'm wondering if other people struggle with this and link it to their bipolar? I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts
  5. What frustrates me is that binge eating is never taken seriously by the Mental Health System. As a child I was morbidly obese and it was never taken seriously by doctors. I was always eating, mostly as a coping mechanism. I remember I was constantly checking the fridge for food, even after dinner. I just never stopped eating. I gained so much weight that it took me 6 years to lose it. The only thing doctors did, was tell my mom that I needed to eat vegetables.... and they also gave me a voucher for the gym which didn't help economically much either. It took my Mom installing a lock in the fridge for me to lose weight. It's only recently that I can manage without the lock. I still open the fridge door to check what there is but I don't eat anything. The new way I manage is by doing my own shopping and cooking. So the way I manage to stay healthy and thin, is by buying only essential food and eating a lot of food that is low on calories so I can subconsciously tell my self I've eaten enough. I am just fed up that food effects my life so much, it is so hard to resist eating crap and my metabolism don't help either. I can cope with it, although the problem is still there and now that I am thiner it is even harder to get help for it . I am disappointed with the mental health system, I feel as they don't support everyone. They are excellent at helping me with my other problems that effect my life but not when it comes to food addiction. Does anybody feel like that anyway?
  6. I was really pissed off & disgusted by Urban Outfitters' treatment of mental health, making light of serious conditions just to make money. First they had a 'Eat Less' t-shirt which has thankfully now been pulled And now they have a 'Depression' t-shirt, reducing a serious mental illness that affects a lot of people into the mere fashion statement of a 'super depressing tee' http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=29812401 Its ridiculous how a popular & well known brand can stigmatise mental health & reduce it to a 'cool' fashion statement when so many are campaigning to counter this view. Are these t-shirt fine or do you find them disgusting?
  7. I have gone 2 days without binging! THAT IS HUGE FOR ME! I can never go more than one day without binging! I know I can do this! I used be so skinny till this disorder came about. I can't wait to lose this weight and to get rid of this disorder! So YAY! 2 days! I know it seems so easy but my binge eating disorder is really bad so... and on the days that I COULD go 1 day without binging.... well they were rare. I'm so happy! I figured out why I binge-cause I am bored, lonely, and depressed. And I am currently fixing those things. So I repeat-YAY!
  8. ... sorry, all of the other introductory topic tiles were taken : ) I'm one of those people who suffers depression deeply and often, yet no one can tell. guess I trained myself from an early age to always smile. I have bipolar disorder. I ultra rapid cycle and have mixed states. I am depressed more than I am anything else when things are bad. I have the occasional hypomania with paranoia and sometimes hallucinations. I've had panic attacks and an eating diosorder with body image distortions since the age of 6. Glad to say that after trying a shitload of medication I am now doing quite well. I've been riding on the stable side for about 4 months now, since we added the new antidepressant viibryd to my cocktail. Because I've been stable for a bit my pdoc and I are trying to sort out a working ADD med for me. I'm pretty much useless on the topic right now, if anyone should have any suggestions. Although it often feels like it, I know I am not defined by my mental health problems. I'm working on getting out there and spreading my wings. I've spent so long feeling bad that I don't know what to do now that I feel good! I used to do photography and I'm looking at doing that again. I want to get a degree in psychology just because it intrigues me. I love kitty kats and I have two of them. And my major project right now is getting my mom's used book store up and running. She hasn't been able to work in 9 months because of MS. It's completely overwhelming me and I'm freezing up. She is an ADD poster child and the store shows it. Boxes and boxes of books in the aisles. Others strewn all over or in piles. Not to mention that there is a mouse problem and you know what comes with that... BUT! I will find a way. This store is my baby and I'll get it going somehow... Thanks for reading, if you've gotten this far. I have a good feeling about this site. Anyone can feel free to say hello. I'd love to talk (and listen!).
