    ED specialist

    My psychologist is setting me up with someone one deals with eating disorders. Im not sure what to think. I feel like there is nothing wrong with me and im fine. Maybe I was just supposed to be small or better yet, maybe this is what my life is supposed to be. Im so confused, counfused about what I don't know. If I don't restrict then I eat junk and if I eat to much junk it goes back up. I get into these weird patterns. I don't know how to break them. hope this wasn't triggering or to graphic?

    I would suggest giving it a try, and see how it goes.

    I have borderline-anorexia/ED NOS, but have never had treatment for it on its own, as my therapist and I have things in hand.
    I understand those starving-craving cycles, as my therapist has called them, and find exploring the emotions behind them immensely helpful in making the changes I need to make in my eating habits.

    I really think that it would be a good idea to go to the appt and at least see how it goes. As you said yourself, you are confused and maybe this appt will help clarify what the confusion is all about. The way I see it, at this point what have you got to lose by going?

    Good luck

    That is almost a textbook description of the distorted thinking that occurs with an eating disorder.

    It seems to me the referral to an ED specialist was an excellent idea.

    Re: ED specialist

    while reading your post many things stuck out more than others such as like david says the fact that you feel that there is nothing wrong with you that this is your way of life. i admit when living in a e-d that is what it feels like cause you live with it and it is just in some way become part of the way you live but just because it is part of your routine doesn't make it good.. lets take a diabetic for example .. they have diabities they live with it every day but that doesn't make them the disease .. they are a whole other being the difference is that e-d 's is in your head so it is harder to make the difference. but in an other part of your post you notify the pattern you see that it exist and that you just exist in it in some ways as you say "you don't know how to break them"..
    i feel that the specialist will be able to help you far more than anybody else and it could be a great thing in your getting better

    Re: ED specialist

    Well, I saw my ED therapist. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. She looks as though she is in her thirdies I don't doubt it. Its amazing because she has had an ED her self, but anyway just want to let ya all know that I went and saw her and that I will be going back.

    Re: ED specialist

    Well, this is the beginning of the battle between husband and wife. My husband and I cannot afford, for me to see this specialist because it is so expesive. therefore I am no longer seeing this therapist. i feel like my husband is taking control over me. I talked to him and told him the extent of my condition and he just told me to eat. And that a residental in home care place cost a lot more, but I can't get it through his head. what do I do
