Paranoid Girlfriend

I want to learn how to deal with my female friend that has a paranoid disorder. My girlfriend is undiagnosed. However, displays every symptom of the paranoid personality disorder. I was searching for an explanation as to why she has gotten worse in her paranoia. It has turned into a love-hate relationship. I know that my responses to her are wrong because things only escalate. I will not confess to things I didn’t do...

Overeating

I don’t know why, but I literally feel like I have to be eating all the time. My body will be extremely full, but my mind is telling me that I am still hungry. I do realize how weird this sounds. When I told my doc, she said this was just an excuse for me to eat what I want. I completely disagree. I often find myself trying to fight the urge to eat,...

Depression and Anorexia

When I was in the seventh grade I always joked about depression. I never knew how serious it could be. My mother abandoned our family when I was little and got into drugs. My dad has been a single parent almost all his life. In 8th grade I started to realize that it was not a joke, because I had it. I stayed in my room, I drew away from my family and sports,...

15 and Self-Centered

From the : Well, let me start off. I am a teen who loves my family, however I get very annoyed and angry in my mind at unintelligent, annoying, attention craving people. Whether I have problems with them or not, they annoy me. In the beginning of freshman year, I had extreme anxiety, but now it has gotten better. I obsess over how my face looks and my body a lot, although my mom...

Possible Recurrence of Eating Disorder

I used to be bulimic. I have been better for 12 years but had bulimia for about 9 years. I do not really think I would ever make myself sick again but lately I have been experiencing some of the same feelings and obsessions as before. I weigh myself several times a day and this determines my mood. I weigh all my food to calculate how much I can have as I am actively...

Binge Eating and Depression

I’ve been depressed for about 4 years now and recently it has started to get worse. I don’t go out with my friends any more, and I’ve began binge eating and cutting. I’m a distance runner and since I’ve been binge eating, I have gained weight and now I don’t go out for runs or workout any more. I have no motivation and my parents keep asking me why I’m not doing track this...

Life Going Down Hill

My life has been going down hill recently. I have never been an abusive person, but suddenly I punched two kids in my class (they were teasing me but that is no excuse). Academically I’m not doing so great anymore. I used to get straight A’s, now I get D’s and C’s. One of my best friends completely turned on me and is now siding with the bullies. I feel as if my friends...

I Myself Don’t Even Know

I really just wanted some perspective. This all started about 3 months ago majorly I guess. But the most recent event was last week. I woke up last Wednesday and just didn’t want to go to school, talk to anyone, see anyone, I just hated everyone and everything around me. I haven’t gone to school for 10 days nor have I talked to any of my friends. I had eating problems before but now...

Can I Have Bulimia If I’m Overweight?

I binge and purge almost every day but I’m not sure if I’m bulimic. My binges are not always followed by purging and my purging in not always preceded by binging. Sometimes I like the full feeling. Sometimes I’m just searching for the feeling of relief I get when I vomit. I don’t think I’m preoccupied with my weight. Also, I’m genuinely overweight so afraid to discuss this with my psychiatrist in case he...

Every innocent diet always turns in to me not wanting to eat at all little by little then, I start to binge and purge large amounts and gain weight back.

My weight changes dramatically I either lose/gain a pound a day one week I’ll gain...
