It doesn't matter that you've not been diagnosed. You're having a tough time in your relationship with food so whether it's disordered eating, an eating disorder, whatever, there's still something there that you may benefit from getting some support with.
Okay thanks. Can you send me the link to it please?

It'll take some time to be approved on here since anons can't send links without approval. If you search 'Beat chat rooms' in Google, it'll be the first result. The second result tells you all about the different groups.

Ok, so let's replace that with thoughts about how much better you'll feel by not having them. Tell me three things you're looking forward to once you've recovered

Better blood sugars, losing weight and that’s it. Why do they have to be so bad for me and why do I feel so empty without it 💔
I’ll keep going on but I feel stressed

So for me, I always go vain for my third reason. Think of all the nice clothes you've always wanted that you'll be able to buy and with the money you'll eventually save from not binging, you'll be able to buy them!

That’s so true! All the money I’ve spent on binging could’ve went towards a holiday! Thanks a lot, my craving has reduced

Vanity works so I'm always like, think of all the nice shirts I get to buy. That's ok and I'm sorry to hear about the support group - did it at least give you things to think about?

That’s good, how long were you going strong before you “relapsed”?
BEAT called me to just tell me there’s support on their site and I should try the support group again. And I should call my GP again but there are no eating disorder services near my area that are on the nhs. So it would be a waste of time

So I've not actually recovered at all. Most I've managed without purging is 10 days, but I've been pretty solidly having an ED without let up for 4 years in July. I'm tempted to recover on occasions, but when this is all you know it's tough. I mean definitely give it time with the support group. Have you considered mentioning PTSD symptoms though?

Ah sorry. 10 days is impressive though. What have the doctors said, is your health at risk? And no understand, it is very difficult when you’ve been suffering it for such a long time.

I will try but the GP’s can’t diagnose it I’ve heard and it has to be a psychiatrist :/ and that’s going to take long

Just checking in with you. Have you spoken to your GP/Nurse to check if you're now considered high risk for COVID-19? Hope you're alright.

Thanks. I think I’m high risk because of my diabetes but I heard it’s only key workers right now who are getting vaccinated.

It’s only been 2 days! I cannot believe it, it feels like it has been a week.

No, they're at group 6 or so currently. I've had my vaccine as I'm high risk (CEV/Shielding), had it 3 weeks ago.

Please check in with them. Your safety is important!

Oh right. I thought I’d wait for them to contact me to tell me they’re ready. I keep procrastinating calling them even about the referral. I promise I will get it done tomorrow.
