Hello,

I’m 31 and live in the UK. I have been living with these issues around food/ disordered eating/ bulimia/ restriction/ bingeing/ general self loathing etc for a very long time. I’ve found more often than not over this past year that food/ weight loss is at the forefront of my mind once again.
Perhaps it’s due to being at a certain point in my life where everything feels pretty out of control and the stakes are particularly high so to speak- being in my 30s, starting a new career, a long term relationship. ‘Is it a bird? Is it a plane?’ Is it just 2020? It would be really nice to be able to talk to people in a similar situation. It has been very difficult to find anyone (even my partner or close friends) that truly understand what it is like and it would be nice to be able to talk to some like- minded people without feeling like a total melodramatic nutter.

Sounds similar to where I'm at. For me, it's about re-establishing control within all this chaos.

Thank god for your comment! I though everyone here was 28 and from America (nothing wrong with that) but I’m 32 and live near Southampton so didn’t really have much in common with people.

I’m in the same sinking boat where I can’t talk to family or friends about my disordered eating/binge/restriction because they just don’t get it. All I think about is food and how to loose weight (not being very successful at the latter right now) so it would be amazing to have someone who actually gets how I feel!

FYI I’m a red berry tea sort of girl lol Yorkshire tea is waaaay to strong for me haha
