Thanks for asking. I am slightly hungover(I did take an ambien last night so I could sleep) feeling fat, ugly, worthless. You know...the usual suspects. Now I am restricting and I exercised for an hour. I am trying to get the committee in my head to shut up so perhaps I can have a peaceful day.

This is the worst 3 days ever. My husband went away for a few days. My therapist invited attachment and then slammed the door in my face( I think he realized he went over board with being to involved in my care). So now every feeling of being abandoned, intrinsically broken, wanting to not be human, has flooded me. I have had 4 episodes of binging/purging. It helps for a few hours and then I feel worse about myself. I am already preparing for the next episode. I even bought food that will keep things in control and simple. If only T would just send a message asking how I am doing like he use to.

I failed him some how and he put me on the back burner. He had high hopes and I did not. He overwhelmed me with his hopes for me and it made me feel worse about myself.

Saw my T today, my husband is home and I do not feel so alone. It was disturbing when my T, after 5 months, could not remember if I purge. He just thought I was a binge eater. That disturbed me.

It has been 3 days!

It might not seem like a big deal, but for me it's HUGE, given that lately I have been binging and purging multiple times a day.

Congrats!! Now try and see how long you can make it. I remember when I finally made it to 6days. Still trying to make it to 7days.

Thank you, but... I messed up today. Zero days... I'm dealing with a lot of **** right now.
I'm starting over...

Wow, 6 days! You're doing good. Good luck with your efforts.

I just realized if I make it through today it would finally be a full week.

It's been about 140 days since I've purged. Feels much longer than that, and at the same time I am so grateful. Just keep going, everyone. Just keep going.
