Diabetics with Binge Eating Disorder or COE
[Current Location |Gig Harbor, WA]

Hi, I just joined this community and I was wondering if I fit in here because I'm only pre-diabetic/insulin-resistant, but I do have binge eating disorder.  Please let me know.  Also, if you know of any other communities for binge eating disorders, please point me in the right direction.  Thanks!  My stats:

~ Diagnosed with pre-diabetes/insulin-resistance 6 years ago when I was around 275lbs.  (Also diagnosed with a thyroid condition at the same time).
~ Diagnosed with Binge Eating Disorder this year.  (Formerly anorexic from Jr. High through College - I am now 37 years old).
~ I currently weigh around 300lbs. and am 5'4" which puts me at a size 24.

I'm just looking for a supportive community and to make friends with people who are dealing with similar issues.

Hi and welcome,
Sadly, this group is not very active anymore. That doesn't mean that our problems have gone away, just that we haven't talked about them in a while.

I know that I am still dealing with my food issues every day, sometimes successfully and often not.

I have not visited the other various COE groups in a long time. Honestly, I got scared because a some of the people (usually elder teens and twenties) were apparently trying to conquer their Binge disorders by flipping over to Anorexia or Bulimia. The groups may have changed, but please be careful.

If you would like to "friend" me, please do. I am not posting in my journal as much as I used to, but I do try to visit daily.

Feel free to post your trials here as well.

I friended you. . . thanks for being so kind and welcoming to me. :-) Sorry it took me so long to respond - I was returning from a convention this weekend when we got hit with this crazy winter weather here in the Northwest. I've been focusing on that instead of my online life.

Thanks for the warnings about other COE groups - I noticed a similar thing, and with my history of anorexia, that's the last thing I need. I plan to steer clear!
