Relationships with food
Are you wondering if you suffer from an eating disorder? Symptoms may vary.
You may notice all of them or just a few, like: dramatic weight loss or weight gain, yo-yo effect, concerns about eating in public, complaints of constipation, IBS, cold intolerance, abdominal pain, lethargy or excess energy, excuses to avoid mealtimes, dressing in layers to hide weight loss or to stay warm, shame eating, avoiding eating with others, forcing yourself to vomit, and creating rituals around meal times.
In addition, the following may arise:
- conflicted feelings inside, anxious, bombarded with thoughts, counting calories, or excessive exercising
- hating your body, hating yourself, feeling flustered and in emotional pain, experiencing overwhelming sadness and emptiness in everyday life.
However, there is a way to switch your perspective, thoughts, and feelings. Eating disorders may be too deep and too complicated to stop and recover from without help. It may seem like it is too hard, but I firmly believe you have everything to get through this. Let yourself be free. I am here for you.
