I'm pretty sure I have Binge Eating Disorder, but I haven't wanted to bring it up to a doctor. I have told a couple of people close to me but I don't feel like most people take the issue seriously which makes me feel ashamed and not want to open up about it. For a few months, I feel the urge to binge multiple times a week and I feel as though I cannot control my consumption of high sugar/fat foods when I get the craving. I always eat way more than I want - until my stomach is in a lot of pain, and I feel tired and bloated. I have tried multiple times to get a hold of my eating and stop bingeing, but I always give in to the urges. I am honestly so frustrated. I have been diagnosed with depression as well and this bingeing has been making me feel depressed again. Is there anybody else that's experiencing the same thing?
