Depressive overeating

I have noticed I've began to binge eat and most of my friends are out of reach. Most of the times I cry in the shower because I'm depressed because of stressful events that have happened to me in the past. Should I bother to go looking for help again? I don't want to play mice chase again.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Binge eating is a common way for people suffering mental disorders to self medicate. It gives your body a big ol' dopamine hit. It's very common, but it ultimately doesn't treat the problem & can make depression much worse because it can lead to weight gain & secretive activities & shame & a little bit of a binge purge restrict cycle.

    Listen, if you are depressed and unhappy, that's a physical problem, just as much as a broken leg. It's caused by your brain under producing or quickly metabolizing the brain chemicals associated with happiness & mental rewards. There's absolutely NOTHING wrong with getting help for that & you should.

    Binge eating will never solve your problems. It will make everything worse. It's a bad cycle that feeds on itself & that's true for any attempt to self medicate. You can get help for this & you should. You deserve it.

  • Depression just takes some self control and motivation to overcome.

  • Mice chase? Well, whatever you do don't catch mice, eat them, because it's not nice, and there's a good chance you'll catch Toxoplasma gondii.

    • It was just a saying Rose, it just means I don't want to have people chasing me up for this.

      So I had a question if I should go and get help again?

  • The only success I have in losing weight is not eating. Just eat once a day. If you try the bs where you dont eat much it never works.

    • Really? That's your advice to someone suffering from depression? Go on a crash diet.

      You are the worst.

      • You are fat. I've seen your picture. You dont get an opinion. I grew up doing sports where I had to make weight within days. If you wanna lose 20+ pounds of fat a month you eat once a day. If you wanna stay chubby and play victim you cry like yourself about the truth being harsh

        ..now go log into your other account and send me a snappy comeback

        • I'm not even overweight, you weird retard? Idk where the fuck this is even coming from. I'm on the low end of a healthy bmi, but even if I wasn't that's no reason to excuse your horrible advice of suggesting OMAD to someone who suffers from a binge eating disorder. That's basically a set up for a binge restrict cycle. It's ridiculously thoughtless advice.

          & I've gotten the alternate account accusation before. It's not new. The thing is, you're stupid. You know you're stupid. You've said as much. As a stupid person, you should be aware that a lot of people are going to disagree with the stupid things you say. Unfortunately, all of those people are not me, out to get you, with sneaky alternate accounts. Maybe get off IIN for at least a day if you find yourself harbouring irrational theories about people having 6 accounts just to internet spank you. You're ridiculous.
