shameful? -as you implied, it is a difficult disorder. From what I know , progress is a gradual move up with fluctuations -you are having a fluctuation I guess. Can you recognise any trigger points -this time?

Thanks PH, it's so good to have this thread to come to.

Hoose, any kind of stress or pressure and it just flairs up. I don't always realise it's happening, it's gradual - not as though one day I'm ok and the next I'm not. P*ssed off with myself for not having tried harder to stop this episode when I suspected it might have been coming on. Think have been blasé because it's been a few months since I've been like this. Still, I have learned from previous times so it's not *as* bad. Hence being on here and feeling like I'm admitting to it (stupid, but I feel absolved somehow).

-if you could switch it off like that it would not be a problem Lyra-would it? Yopu will learn from this. As hipps said re-set when you are able.

just take care of the lovely person I see for a bit eh?

Reset. I like that word, PH. Running's a big help on this one. Especially because it's all starting to go a bit better and I'm not getting injured.

Seems to all be about compromise.

21/04/2007 at 22:36
yes, it is indded a compromise

But you arent all the way in the black pit
tomorrow is another day, and all that

It sucks that this never goes away though
21/04/2007 at 23:00
Thanks Hoose - I feel none too lovely at the moment! :-)

No, but that pit never gets filled in, like you say. Sh*t, maybe I need it. As you say, compromise. If not this, then what?
22/04/2007 at 07:10
I think the pit gets partially filled actually

and yes-keep looking forwards
22/04/2007 at 07:13
morning hippo - shouldn't you be somewhere?
22/04/2007 at 08:04
yes lyra -that's why i said "I see" -trust me on that one eh?;O)

I agree with hipps. Nice to see the real undertanding that comes from real experience, As said before, I have learned from this thread more than any book can offer.

I can't believe how common eating problems are. If only it was easy for everybody to just eat what they should...

Hi im new to this forum but i think its great, just thought id share another persons eating disorder with you. This is a big problem in society and i wish there was more help out there for us people. Im 29 used to run as a little girl with my dad then hit teens and stopped. Had anorexia aged 17 to 20 under 6 stone at worst then ever since have had eating problems restricting, and throwing up up to 3 times aday.
With my running i started up a year ago and am about to do my first 10k in june and really enjoying doing something i think im good at.The food thing is still an issue though, i eat small bowl of porridge a day and maybe bowl vegtables for tea and snack a little in between, but my running has helped me stop throwing up like i used to. Im much more confident with my body now then i have ever been and im sure well i hope with more effort my eating problems will get better the longer i run and realise i have to eat or i cant run. Current weight 7stone 10lbs and 5'4 but running has given me the determination to fight this thanks for reading hayley

"this is a big problem in society"

When I was growing up in Rio, there was a big pressure for women to be curvy.

I spent my youth force feeding myself so I would look like them, with curves, boobs and bums. (I never succeeded).

good for you hayley
