Hello Everyone! [Nov. 20th, 2010 - 09:32 pm]

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.

Now a day people with diabetes is increasing every second and the statistic by the year 2000 shows there are 171 million people with diabetes and it will be expected to rise to 366 million by the year 2030.

 Hey everyone,

my names erica but everyone can call me aerie!

I am 16 years old, ive had diabetes for nine years now. i still havent accepted it yet. i hate it

so much! i was recently in the hospital for DKA. i almost didnt make it. i went into a diabetic coma for 1 day,

my temperature at one point was 88 degrees. the DRS could not believe i made it through! they diagnosed me 

with diabulimia. i am 5`2 and i was at 90lbs. now im at 105lbs,i am really looking for some support.

i cant handle talking to my mom about my problem/addiction. i see my insulin as the enemy, i know that sounds stupid but 

its like fat in a bottle to me. 

How is everyone else?

I'm GETTING IT! [Sep. 11th, 2007 - 11:13 am]
Diabetics with Binge Eating Disorder or COE

[state of mind |ecstaticecstatic]

for some strange reason, something clicked in my head, and i'm GETTING IT. for almost two weeks, i've been keeping my blood sugars to a normal level (with medication and insulin). I mean, picture perfect normal levels -- between 70 and 120 are my goals, and i'm coming in between 63 and 129. that is truly remarkable -- almost a modern miracle.

how? cutting back severely on portion sizes, primarily. and for the most part, i am not feeling deprived -- or depraved! (that was a joke, people!)

and i'm feeling so much better. not as moody, nor as lethargic.

i'm also feeling so much MORE!! it's hard to explain unless you've been there. . . . but a bunch of feelings are no longer blocked, and they are jumping up demanding to be heard/felt. in the past, i would have run from many of them, because many of them are, ahem, LESS THAN COMFORTABLE. giving myself permission to FEEL all this is very freeing -- and exhausting, and painful, and joyful, and demanding. and i'm doing it.

I don't know if I should feel validated or depressed....

From new scientist:

Here is the manual link since I can't get the LJ link thing to work...


"A national survey finds that out-of-control binge-eating is more prevalent than anorexia or bulimia combined, contributing to the rise in obesity"

I Hate Food [Nov. 7th, 2006 - 02:34 pm]
Diabetics with Binge Eating Disorder or COE

well, i also *love* food. way too much, it seems.

met with my nutritionist yesterday, and as usual, it was a very difficult situation. i hate talking about food, i hate admiting all that i truly eat, i hate examining my feelings around eating and the emotional food triggers i have, and most of all i Really Hate cutting back on my food.

the discussion went something like this:
me: having to cut down on my food is NOT FAIR.
Me, in response: that's true, however, the concept of 'fair' has no place in this discussion.

me: i have cut out enough substances from my daily life (booze, cigarettes, drugs, etc), and i'm Done cutting them out.
Me, in response: if that were true, my body wouldn't be complaining as loudly as it is.

me: i Don't Want To!!!
Me, in response: i know. you don't have to want to. you just have to do it.

(sounds alot like a newcomer to AA, doesn't it?)
unfortunately, this is alot harder than stopping drinking ever was!!!

so here i am at the lowest weight i've been at in over 7 years, and my blood sugars are going sky high. (as in 220-340) WHY?? no clue. and that's just the nature of the beast; sometimes the blood sugar goes wild and there is no obvious cause.
i spoke w/ my doc last nite and she said that we just have to up my insulin; so i did this morning; we'll see what happens. :::sigh:::

so i'm renewing my efforts at food control in the hopes of losing more weight. she even said, err, the nutritionist said, that it was perfectly reasonable to tell my kids that we won't be having sweets in the house for the foreseeable future, since it is very hard for me to be around them and not eat them. (?????!!?!?!?!?) i'm not sure i believe that it's ok to do that, any input?

anyway . .. . more later.

Hello, I've just found this community and thought I'd introduce myself upon joining.

Ramblings for an introduction.Collapse )

Anyway, well, I'm glad I found this community. Nice to know I'm not alone. I've never ever talked to someone with BED, let alone someone with both BED and diabetes. Great to know this community exists. Please don't be put off by my whining, I'm not always like this ^^.

I'm Here ... Sorta [Sep. 30th, 2006 - 01:37 am]

[state of mind |blahblah]

Fell into a very deep depression a couple months ago, and there's no sign of relief yet.  Surprisingly, I haven't been eating like a madwoman.  I think I'm too depressed to develop the agitation that preceeds an attack of the munchies.

I did get kinda crazy last night.  I didn't act on my impulses as strongly as usual, but candy and potato chips were involved. 

When do the rest of you get triggered to eat the wallpaper off the walls?  Mine's usually due to stress and tension.

I like the feeling of not being out of control, but I'm not sure that suicidal depression is the answer.

I hate my desparation for food!!! [Sep. 1st, 2006 - 09:59 pm]
Diabetics with Binge Eating Disorder or COE

[state of mind |distresseddistressed]

I have been binging big time of late.  I have also been sneaking food.  I am feeling that whole "out of control, sad, desparate,eat to comfort, out of control" circle again.  

I have gained 10 pounds in one month.  After my diagnosis I list 30 pounds, I have now gained them back plus 15.  Great, just great.

I haven't checked my blood sugars in at least two weeks, and I let myself run out of metfornin.   I have insulin but I haven't been using it either.

I am depressed, bloated, and pacing around, trying to find something to eat to take my mind off of it for a moment.

I keep saying that tomorrow is a new morning and I will do so much better tomorrow.  Then the morning comes and I have to eat a healthy breakfast alone because everyone gets ticked off when I suggest a bowl of cereal and some fruit instead of eggs, toast and bacon or pancakes.  So being the martyr that I am I make them their breakfast and then eat my healthy one alone and/or I "sacrifice myself" to their bad diet.

I know I am in charge of the food.  I know I do all of the cooking.  I know that if they eat something bad for them in this house, I put it there.  That doesn't change the fact that I like to hear them say that they like the food I make and food without grease and heavy carbs do not generate those responses.

I just needed to get that off my chest.  If I am busy complaining about food, it makes it harder to eat the food.

I need to figure out a way to get rid of the sense of desparation I feel at night.  I don't want to go to bed because I haven't gotten anything done and if I tell myself that I can go to bed early and wake up earlier to get stuff done early then I have to face that fact that I really don't want to do anything and that makes me depressed and I want to eat.  The house is a jumbled, cluttered mess and I can't keep it in control.  My brain mirrors that and vice-versa.

Ugggh! Thanks for listening.
