Stood Up… Again

We have all heard the story of that date where someone is left standing. The embarrassment and pain that person must feel, is felt as we read or hear about it. No one wants to open themselves up to that situation and feel the rejection.  But what if that rejection is in another form. To talk to someone about my condition is immensely difficult.  For me to open up about anything is not in my nature. This evening I have just done that. They have been talking about diests i could do, trying to help me. Diets arent part of getting better. So i have given someone I love the chance to understand a little bit if what I’m going through, by reading a couple of pages in my Overcoming Binge Eating Disorder book, explaining the effect diets have on binge eating disorder. They took it, whilst sitting next to me and have placed it on the chair. What was so important that they could look at the first page? Reality bloody TV. The pain is less then it has been in the past. This is far from the first time something important to me, has been dismissed for something so irrelevant. Gives an insight into why I’m so guarded with my emotions.

    I feel you on the diets. Drives me crazy when someone suggests a diet for me. In fact, dieting is what got me here in the first place. I’m sorry to hear that you were dismissed. It’s an awful feeling. Have you looked into getting support around you? I’ve found invaluable friends at an EDA meeting I attend. I don’t work the steps or anything, but it’s nice to have a small group to talk to when I’m having a tough time. Feel free to reach out to me as well. We’re all in this together is the way I see it.

      Thank you, yes it is very much we’re in this together. Maybe ine day there will be more understanding towards us in general. There are so many of us. I do have some virtual support, I can’t get to the meetings but it’s good to know they are there. I hope you have a good day.x
