Hello Mohan, The road to recovery from an eating disorder starts with admitting you have a problem. True recovery from an eating disorder involves learning to:
- Listen to your feelings.
- Listen to your body.
- Accept yourself.
- Love yourself.
This may seem like a lot to tackle, but just remember that you’re not alone. Help is out there and with the right support and guidance, you can break free from your eating disorder’s destructive pattern, regain your health, and find the joy in life.
Mohan, Disordered eating is a coping mechanism for stress and as you are stressed about your financial condition I suppose you are doing this. You may refuse food to feel in control, binge for comfort, or purge to punish yourself, for example. But whatever need your eating disorder fulfills in your life, you can learn healthier ways to cope with negative emotions and deal with life’s challenges.
The first step is figuring out what’s really going on inside. Are you upset about something? Depressed? Stressed out? Lonely? Is there an intense feeling you’re trying to avoid? Are you eating to calm down, comfort yourself, or to relieve boredom? Once you identify the emotion you’re experiencing, you can choose a positive alternative to starving or stuffing yourself.
Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
- Call a friend
- Listen to music
- Play with a pet
- Read a good book
- Take a walk
- Write in a journal
- Go to the movies
- Get out into nature
- Play a favorite game
- Do something helpful for someone else
