An eating disorder is a compulsion in which the main issue is a person eating in a way which disturbs their physical health.
The eating maybe too excessive, too limited, eating normally but punctuated with episodes of purging, binging or ingesting non foods.
This can be very difficult to express how you are feeling. You may, sometimes feel that you are isolated cannot talk to anyone, guilty, angry, frustrated and there may be times when eating may be like keeping a secret from those closest to you.
You may ‘play’ with your food on the plate, frequently brush your teeth, only allow yourself certain amounts of food to eat and drink. This may be confusing for you.We can work through this together.
