    LivyLooLoo Loo 1 month ago I thought the same! Lol. I did agree with her advice about doing things to keep her mind off of it. However, I think she needs to get a therapist. To teach her how to love herself. To help her through that.

    Tara Wright 1 day ago I can't recall.every wanting to reach through the screen to slap someone upside the head quite as desperately as when that stupid woman said that. Props to that poor lady she said it to for keeping her cool. Can't say I would have been able to, to be honest.
  • Daniela Staples
    Daniela Staples 1 month ago I cooked and ate in my sleep once. I was pretty freaked out when I woke up and saw that "someone" had cooked in my kitchen. I quickly realised that people don't break into people's apartments to make omelettes. LOL
  • Spinning Sage
    Spinning Sage 1 month ago Daniela Staples do you take anything rx?

  • Justice is blind
    Justice is blind 3 weeks ago (edited) Daniela Staples i once read a post on 4chan where someone said he broke in someones apartment so he could fart on his face while he was asleep.
  • Cherry Metha
    Cherry Metha 3 weeks ago (edited) Daniela Staples I used to sleep cook and eat too.. I remembered bits of a dream in the morning of me cooking a bit but never eating anything. , Once I was in the kitchen with my friend and a whole load of spaghetti fell on her head . I'd boiled spaghetti in my sleep and somehow it had ended up on the ceiling ! Lord knows how! Thankfully I don't sleep cook and eat anymore . It just stopped! Dunno how or why it stopped or why I even did it!
  • Noel Dee
    Noel Dee 6 days ago Cherry Metha it’s so strange how do you know what you’re doing ? Maybe you think you’re dreaming ?
  • Maureen Seel
    Maureen Seel 2 months ago Yeah...that "nutritionist" was SUPER helpful. "You're not fat." "I still see myself as fat." "You have to get a hold of yourself." SMH
  • Jenny :
    Jenny : 2 months ago If it takes over her life, does that not make it an eating disorder? It’s literally preventing her from property social function, that would be ednos or osfed.
  • hall0w33nb0y
    hall0w33nb0y 2 months ago Yes
  • The Hair Of Slytherin
    The Hair Of Slytherin 2 months ago Yes, that's exactly what I thought too!
  • That Edgy Goat
    That Edgy Goat 2 months ago There’s no way to describe it than “eating disorder”
  • Sarah Louncke
    Sarah Louncke 2 months ago I was thinking it too. Her relationship with food and herstelf is not healthy, i wish she could get help.
  • Lisa
    Lisa 2 months ago Ya EDNOS fits so many eating disorders but any situation where your life becomes consumed by food and negatively effects your life and or health is an eating disorder
  • Ruj91
    Ruj91 1 month ago It's not eating disorders...more ednos. Hers is more obsessional

  • Ruj91
    Ruj91 4 weeks ago @lollia dia okay love.
  • Ern Era
    Ern Era 1 week ago Katherine P, OSFED is Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder. It replaces EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) in the new DSM-V, and it is different from EDNOS only in that it provides the clarification of subtypes, which classify which disordered eating pattern the person falls in to. For example, OSFED: Atypical Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Purging Disorder, or Night Eating Syndrome.
  • Boop Loop
    Boop Loop 1 week ago Ruj91 you say it’s not an eating disorder, it’s ednos.... which literally stands for “eating disorder not otherwise specified”. ITS AN EATING DISORDER.
  • Ruj91
    Ruj91 1 week ago @Boop Loop   I'm not disputing that she has an eating issue. You clearly don't know that having an eating disorder diagnosis is hard but when it's unspecified and classed as EDNOS it's even harder because it could be any characteristic, any symptoms, any difficulty. If it's named it's in a way easier to formulate a treatment plan accordingly because we know what it is and have a better chance at successfully managing it . I have 5years experience with ED I know what I am talking about. Don't be a dickhead next time, ask for an explanation. I have plenty of info.

  • Tóth Kamilla
    Tóth Kamilla 2 months ago The serial dieter lady should ditch all the weird diets and just eat a certain amount of calories. I guarantee she would lose weight. I can't believe she hasn't figured that out in over 10 years
  • jim jim
    jim jim 1 month ago Dieting is addictive
  • Tóth Kamilla
    Tóth Kamilla 1 month ago @jim jim it would still be dieting, but it would actually work
  • baconfromhell666
    baconfromhell666 1 month ago Some people just want that quick fix or secret or shortcut or "I ate these 3 weird foods, you won't believe what happened next". Common sense is just so far from common for some people.
  • Mariel Quirós
    Mariel Quirós 1 month ago Just by doing excercise as well...I don't get where's the difficulty..
  • Wendy Bendy
    Wendy Bendy 1 month ago (edited) I agree Tóth banish the word diet and have a healthy eating life long plan which includes a tiny bit of EVERYTHING, avocado, mackerel, coleslaw, even a little cake. Eat every colour of the rainbow and only your allocated calorie intake. Preferably food that’s had little or nothing to do with human interference like processing, fried, baked etc. Right out the ground or straight from the tree is best.
  • Katie
    Katie 1 month ago I have 2 supervisors who are currently trying the blood type diet . One is easily 200lbs overweight , neither workout, both over eat junk and cant figure out WHY they're fat .
  • manictiger
    manictiger 1 month ago Less sugar and carbs, more monounsat fat, protein and veggies. Less calories, more excercise. It really isn't rocket science. Also, fasting has a myriad of health benefits. The whole "3 meals a day" and "breakfast is the most important" is bullshit designed to sell shit to stupid fat morons. It's not good advice.
  • kld9q8
    kld9q8 4 weeks ago They didn't talk about this but it's clear... She has an eating disorder. One like ednos or osfed where there's disordered eating behaviors but doesn't meet the full criteria of anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa.
  • The Pronoun I
    The Pronoun I 4 weeks ago She could also start exercising.
  • Liora Sitelman
    Liora Sitelman 3 weeks ago Tóth Kamilla nope. I eat more calories now than I did when I was heavier. For me, cutting the carbs and sugar is what got the weight off, not cutting calories.
  • Mel C.
    Mel C. 3 weeks ago Liora Sitelman you’re probably more active now than when you were heavier or eating more filling foods that are less calories. Weight loss is the result of a caloric deficit always.
  • EvaRose Summerfield
    EvaRose Summerfield 2 weeks ago The concept of weight loss is simple: eat a balenced diet and consume less calories than you work off. However if it was that simple in practice then we wouldn't have an obesity epidemic. The emotional complications of overeating, the guilt Vs binge spiral and social pressures to immediately look a certain way cause people to be stuck in unhealthy eating patterns. I'm not saying it cannot be done, or giving people ready-made excuses, but 'just eat less' / 'just eat healthy' is pointless advice because everyone knows it.
  • Rat Queen Maddi
    Rat Queen Maddi 1 week ago Mel C. Exactly!

  • cassie -
    cassie - 1 month ago yall are extremely misinformed. diet is the main factor in terms of weight, exercise is not a fix all.
  • ketobi
    ketobi 1 month ago @cassie - true! Even if you exercise a lot but still eat tons of unhealthy food then your efforts will just put to waste.
  • cassie -
    cassie - 1 month ago @ketobi i watched some videos were people were able to maintain/lose weight doing that by still eating a normal range of calories just through junk food and even then those people who maintained or lost weight were still unhealthy. regardless the idea that someone should just work out instead of changing their diet is incorrect & oversimplifies the difficulties people go thru in trying to be healthy today in a world that prioritizes what your body looks like over how healthy you are.
  • Miku Miku
    Miku Miku 1 month ago @cassie - yeah but to be toned you should

    Katarina Tumpa 2 months ago Lisa needs to get real. Work out an hour every day and get a food plan. These diets are just fad
  • Psyker Leviant

  • Dana
    Dana 2 months ago (edited) Reagan is exactly why I have pets and not kids. By the third time he screamed no, I wanted to throat punch that child into the next week. (I'm joking obviously but I just don't have the patience for all that).
  • Ruoyang Zhao
    Ruoyang Zhao 2 months ago sameeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate kids soooooooooooooooooooooo much. They are absolutely evil.
  • Dana
    Dana 2 months ago @Ruoyang Zhao I wouldn't go that far. More like they're unnecessary constant irritations.
  • Ruoyang Zhao
    Ruoyang Zhao 2 months ago @Dana Sorry, I just get triggered by that boy's screaming. I know it's reasonable for kids to behave that way, because they are still kids, but personally I just cannot stand them.
  • Scribonius Thursday
    Scribonius Thursday 2 months ago Yeah I don't know how the mother hasn't backhanded that kid, the restraint...
  • Dana
    Dana 2 months ago @Scribonius Thursday Ikr! She should be declared a saint. At first I thought it was her fault and she'd just hadn't been strict enough with him... But when a kid won't eat anything for 4 days because you denied him the 2 kinds of sweets he likes- that's a bit beyond normal childhood rebellion. Somebody else mentioned they think he has AFRID (aka Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder). I just watched a documentary on YouTube about it and it apparently super hard to treat, especially since its often seen in kids who lack the ability for deep introspection and the motivation to recover.
  • Kaiser Frost
    Kaiser Frost 2 months ago Same here. I wouldn't throat punch him but if he started doing that attitude thing he would be get a choice: be respectful or get a spanking with the fly swatter. This kid is about to enter kindergarten. Imagine what he is going to put the teachers and other students through if his parents don't act fast.
  • Kaiser Frost
    Kaiser Frost 2 months ago @Ruoyang Zhao It is not reasonable at all. He's not a baby anymore. By that age he should not be screaming and throwing tantrums every day. The mother isn't disciplining him and/or he has some sort of defiant disorder.
  • Scentgasms by Leila
    Scentgasms by Leila 1 month ago OMG yaaas. I have electively removed myself from the breeding game. No thank you. Not playing Russian Roulette with my DNA. I just know I'd end up with hellspawn.
  • Jane Lennox
    Jane Lennox 1 month ago My child is 3 and eats what I put in front of her.
  • spidertime
    spidertime 1 month ago @Jane Lennox because you're a good mom who doesn't tolerate those outbursts.
  • Tina Thiel
    Tina Thiel 1 month ago My kids don't act that way because it's called discipline. They need to spank him or put him in the corner or do something. My son used to try and pull that bullshit, we straightened him out. You either eat what I make or you don't eat at all. Parents are so afraid to discipline they think it's "abuse" and they're raising assholes. Kids turn into adults, you have to teach and guide yours how to be a part of society.
  • Raie VDV

  • daydreamer3
    daydreamer3 1 month ago I thought exactly the same thing when I was watching this! Reagan is cute with his little glasses but MY GOD what a little monster!! I seriously don't know how that mother manages to restrain herself from beating him!!
  • Alisa E
    Alisa E 1 month ago You realize that you get to RAISE your kids a certain way, right? They're not born that way, they're made that way by their parents.
  • Dana
    Dana 1 month ago @Alisa E What a truly profound statement. 😑 If you've spent anytime around kids at all, then you know every single bloody one is irritating sometimes. All kids throw tantrums & whine. Then they grow into obstinate teenagers who are annoying in a different way. Add in the sheer amount of time, money, & energy you have to commit to being a parent? Thanks but no thanks. I enjoy freedom, sleep, & silence way too much for that. Plus, does anyone really think more fucking people is what this planet really needs right now? We don't already have enough homo sapiens running around littering, polluting, & consuming?
  • Alisa E
    Alisa E 1 month ago (edited) @Dana oh wow, I feel truly and honestly sorry for you and the closed-minded view of the world you display in your statement. I do have children of my own and I work with children and so I know how incredibly important it is to have&raise children correctly, as the potential for making the world a better and more loving and respectful place lies inside this new generation. In that sense, I wish you a pleasent day and that you hopefully find something as equally fulfilling in your life.
  • WouWou
    WouWou 1 month ago (edited) Depends how you raise your kids. Just don't buy shit (=processed "food") in your home, let your kid be hungry as long as he/she agrees to eat whatever you tell him/her to eat. This works on pets as well, my cats are not picky because of this method. Eat what I offer or starve. You choose. Pain of hunger or not so tasty food.
  • dink dankdoo
    dink dankdoo 1 month ago Reagan is the name of the possessed bint in the exorcist
  • AMYP6
    AMYP6 1 month ago I have a 6 year old daughter who is picky and she does not throw tantrums- she just talks to me about the foods she likes and doesn't like. I hate when I see children out of control! Lack of discipline from the care givers.
  • TheCynicalDouche
    TheCynicalDouche 1 month ago @Dana As a father, I can tell you, if you properly discipline and teach a child... they will not act like that. Kids do not create themselves. If your kid is fucking up... it's because you are fucking up.
  • MiragesMisteryGirl
    MiragesMisteryGirl 1 month ago Starve the kid until he eats a sandwich. That’s how they got my best friend to eat when she was still a kid.
  • MiragesMisteryGirl
    MiragesMisteryGirl 1 month ago Tina Thiel People have the same with their dogs. Alot of those tiny accessory dogs aren’t disciplined. I have thrown my dog IN THE TUB because she jumped out while washing her, because she was covered in mud after running through grass after a couple days of rain.. She now loves me and respects me. And with kids, don’t acknowledge their tantrums, just ignore it or put food in front of them. Don’t wanna eat it? Well, too bad, you’re not getting anything else.

  • *internal screaming*
    *internal screaming* 1 month ago the only kids i can stand are the ones who are actually decent and respectful, but everyone else, i fucking hate.
  • Dana
    Dana 1 month ago (edited) @Alisa E You feel sorry for me because I don't want children? And not wanting children makes me "closeminded?" What kind of stupid horse shit is that? I don't give a shit if you have kids or not. Do what you want. But I don't want them. Children would take all the things I like about my life and flush them down the toilet. And I am fulfilled, thanks. Next time, don't be a condescending bitch and then wish me a pleasant day. Its disingenous.
  • Ms. Chin BK
    Ms. Chin BK 1 month ago @Dana Just like pets. Children, for the most part, grow up and leave, at least.
  • Dana
    Dana 1 month ago @Ms. Chin BK Kids arent just like pets. My cat doesn't talk. Or scream all night. Or need to be sent to college. Or force me to watch goofy kids shows like Blue's Clues. Or require constant supervision. And she's fixed so I don't have to worry about her getting knocked up. Etc. Etc. Etc.

  • Julian Rosero
    Julian Rosero 1 month ago I agree with you but many people are easily irritable that even pets annoy them.
  • Shannon Austin
    Shannon Austin 1 month ago (edited) I mean, it's likely that he's autistic. They have sensory issues and often can't stand different textures. He may not understand how to communicate this to his parent and therefore, his response, instead, is to scream. This is not typical behavior and I think we should all take into account the possibility of learning difficulties before claiming that the parent is incapable or the child is evil.
  • Anima Libera
    Anima Libera 1 month ago Dana: Your child becomes what you raise him/her to be. The modern way of dealing with children is "laisser faire" (let them do what they want), and what you saw in the video is the result of it. The old school was: "If you don't want to eat, don't eat. End of story". When these spoiled brats get hungry enough, they WILL eat.
  • Cynthia K.
    Cynthia K. 1 month ago Ruoyang Zhao I hate kids. I knew when I was eight I wasn't gonna have any. I feel "blessed" I live in a time where I have that choice. I've been paranoid about pregnancy prevention and feel like I'm a rare female who's never been pregnant.

  • Jenine Urquhart
    Jenine Urquhart 1 month ago exactly. kids won't starve themselves to death.
  • Orion Hwll
    Orion Hwll 1 month ago It's been mentioned in the documentary that on more than one occasion they didn't give him the foods he eats for 3-4 days and he still wouldn't eat anything. Just because there was a somewhat easy fix to your problem it doesn't mean there's one to his.
  • Amy Emerson
    Amy Emerson 1 month ago Orion Hwll I wasn’t saying that there is, I was simply sharing my story, which I do still feel applies here
  • Chaos Burrito
    Chaos Burrito 1 month ago @Orion Hwll They should have done what my parents did. If I didn't eat what they made, I had to sit at the table with it getting cold until I did. ADHD vs. good parenting- my parents would almost always win in the end. The longest I ever sat there was 7 hours. Let me tell you, you only eat cold brussel sprouts once!
  • One paw at a Time
    One paw at a Time 1 month ago This kid had an actual psychiatric disorder, a severe aversion to food. If someone was absolutely terrified of spiders you wouldn’t dump a bucket of them on their head and tell them to get over it. It’s not a parenting problem, and no amount of discipline or waiting will fix it. Only psychiatric care and treatment.
  • Amy Emerson
    Amy Emerson 1 month ago One paw at a Time I think you’re taking what I’m saying too far. I didn’t suggest that they do this to him, I simply said I did something extremely similar to him and explained what happened to me. I also won’t hear that his mother is firm enough with him; he KNOWS that if he shouts he gets his own way.
  • Adeline
    Adeline 1 month ago @Amy Emerson Then you clearly didn't have the same problem as the kid in this video. You were just a typical picky eater who had a tantrum when she didn't get her way. This kid had both physical and psychiatric problems. You have nothing in common with him.
  • Amy Emerson
    Amy Emerson 1 month ago Adeline there’s no need to get aggressive. Obviously we both had limited foods we would eat, so that’s something in common. Not once have I suggested that this child had the same experience as me, as I’ve said before, I was just sharing what happened to me as a child because this video reminded me of it. Bold of you to assume I had no psychiatric problem. I’m doing my best to be patient, but it’s quite hard when you’re attacking me. Perhaps in the future, be a little more reasonable, thanks.

    Alisa E 2 months ago Lisa, girl, get out of that disgusting brown sweat-suit and work out! you can eat 2000cals a day and still be really slim and toned! just get moving, babe :)
  • Jane Lennox
    Jane Lennox 1 month ago Alisa E she’s probably eating that at night alone. And she can’t work out all the time. She has to earn a living. I’d suggest she just stop eating during the day until she gets this under control
  • Alisa E
    Alisa E 1 month ago @Jane Lennox I have two kids and a husband in the army who only comes home on the weekends and I work full-time and I still manage to excercise every single day. Getting excercise in is NOT difficult and not as time-consuming as many people like to make themselves believe. And not liking what you see in the mirror should be motivation enough to put in a little effort.
  • Tina Thiel
    Tina Thiel 1 month ago Yes! You can work out at home even. You don't have to go out to a gym or anything if you don't want to
  • Ashley Hashimoto
    Ashley Hashimoto 1 month ago You'd have to burn alot of cals to keep up being slim with a 2000 cal diet and lots of people don't have the time she should just eat at least 500 cals under her bmr and she will lose easily.
  • Jacqueline Stephens
    Jacqueline Stephens 1 month ago There could be hormone/ thyroid, mental health issues, too. These shows never touch on that subject.
  • Alisa E
    Alisa E 1 month ago @Ashley Hashimoto if you lead an active lifestyle, you don't even really need added excercise to burn 2000cals per day. Ppl just usually try to make their day as "comfy" as possible and get incredibly lazy . That, added with eating junk like Refined sugar and dairy, will make you fat and unhealthy.
  • Milk Tea
    Milk Tea 1 month ago I don't know about 2000 calories (really only a suitable amount for a woman who's very active), but she should certainly be getting some exercise and counting calories.

    Kcabid Islam 4 weeks ago You can't believe what pregnancy does to you...i am now pregnant with my 3rd child constantly craving french toast and i hate many stuff i used to be crazy about before... It's like there is a different brain inside me... it's not that we have an excuse but it's horrible to be swollen, nauseous (especially if hungry), tired and still refuse yourself something you obsess over... Now in my third trimester I battle insomnia and if i don't eat the thing i so much crave i will be thinking about it through the night and wake up only after sleeping 3-4 h... I can't afford being this sleep deprived as I have 2 older children... I'd rather eat and lose weight after delivery than do this to myself... it's torture....

  • Amelia Grace

  • Random Channel
    Random Channel 2 months ago @Amelia Grace If a child genuinely has a food phobia it would be absolutely cruel & torture to do what I said I'd do (with a child who doesn't have any food phobias). That would be a very concerning and sad thing, especially for a child but for anyone. It would be worse to have a parent who never even attempted to find out the root cause. If it's a mental health issue, I think that's entirely different. Thank you for your comment, you brought up a very good valid point to this discussion. May your day or night be wonderful.
  • Amelia Grace
    Amelia Grace 2 months ago @Random Channel to be honest though its such a slippery slope, like the question parents in the situation must ask over and over again is, is this a geniune phobia or is it just my child ruling the roost. That would be such a terrible dilemma to be in
  • Tina
    Tina 2 months ago He went 4 days without eating when she did exactly that. I think the child has significant medical issues. Poor kid. His poor mother. BTW, I appreciated your sensible response to the comment - and I think your original idea would probably work with most children who are really just “picky eaters.”
  • Random Channel
    Random Channel 2 months ago @Amelia Grace I agree. I recently learned about a "new" (more like recently labeled) eating disorder, idk if it would include this problem or if it's only limited to healthy foods that are consumed where people end up cutting out virtually everything, obsessed over it. The Eating disorder association(can't remember the actual name) recognizes it but the dsm manual doesn't yet. I thought I read it includes people who will only limit themselves to one or two foods for fear of all others. So it is a possibility but I absolutely agree with you, definitely something to be taken seriously and to have a thorough examination and diagnosis if applicable. It would be detrimental to just label stubborn bratty kids Willy nilly with it.
  • Random Channel
    Random Channel 2 months ago @Tina I didn't catch that. Thank you. Also, no problem, I think the best way to approach most anyone or anything is with an open mind and humility. Being wrong, incorrect or questioned aren't bad things imo, it's how you react and what you do after that matters to me. Plus, I think just kind decency has been lost in my generation somewhere with many, hell, most people in general. I'm not perfect by any means nor would I want to be bc that means no more growing, no more learning. But I do try to hear people out, even if or especially if they bring up another aspect or different information that conflicts what I had known. I love to learn new, different perspectives as well and always try to put myself in another's shoes. Anyway, yeah. Common courtesy is what I was trying to say. Goes along way

Try to find a kid friendly cookbook and make it a fun activity, get them involved in a fun way. Get them their own little aprons & stuff, most people are afraid to have kids near the stove/boiling water. Hey, they’re just little people. They’re not stupid and understand that they can get burned. They enjoy getting to do big kid/adult stuff, and the success of making a meal. Just supervise closely, and it will be fine, or better yet have a trusted teenager they look up to come over and mentor them in this direction. Don’t let the kid out smart you!

This should definately start to be investigated in these extreme cases. The mother „cant help herself“ by buying him massive amounts of food.

She HAD to have known her bedridden 800+ pound son was nearing death, and yet she didn't seek help??

He ate no food at all, and lost 125 kilograms (19.7 stone). So, no, you don't die if you don't eat for a while.

I've been starving myself on and off for 3 years now, and although the lack of a period appeals, my heart and my body in general are giving up on me day by day. I can see myself getting to a similar point as to where you are not too far down the line and it is a very disturbing thought. ED's are a slippery slope and I think I have to finally get my shit together and commit to gradual changes rather than chasing the high of being empty for days only to resort to the same disordered eating habits. Sorry that you got to yourself to that point. It really breaks my heart. No one should have to put up with something like that because of an eating disorder. Thank you for sharing a part of your story. Stay strong.

I did crystal meth for 10 years, used to drink a fifth of vodka a day, and smoke cigarettes. I was in and out of the legal system and forced to go to many AA/NA type of meetings. They preach that you are "powerless" and must "turn control over to a higher power"... which is total bullshit. YOU, and YOU alone have the power to conquer this. You know how "God" is going to help you? By giving you the brain that you need to use to take control of this and change. I quit all those drugs on my own, because I was "done". You can be "done" now too.

  • Myukur
    Myukur 1 month ago @TheCynicalDouche Mental disorders are not the same as addiction. The general concept is similar, yes, but just "quitting" an eating disorder? Any kind of disorder? I would certainly not tell a schizophrenic that they have the power within themselves to overcome their illness.
  • TheCynicalDouche
    TheCynicalDouche 1 month ago @Myukur Whether you think you can... or can't.... you're right. Yes, eating disorders are problems with behavior. Behavior that YOU and YOU alone can control. If you play the victim over your own actions... you will NEVER change. Schizophrenia is nothing like it. That's a problem that you have no control over. The mental health industry throws around the "disease" word a little too liberally. Because they profit from everyone seeing themselves as victims who cannot help themselves. DUH. The mental health industry makes money from people being sick... and would love it if more people were considered sick and helpless... because money.
  • im a flower
    im a flower 1 month ago ​@TheCynicalDouche Self motivation is definitely a huge part of recovering from an addiction or an eating disorder; I can't disagree with you on that. Just because someone may be a "victim" does not mean that they are completely helpless to help themselves. If a person needs a little extra assistance, that's fine, but they ultimately need to make the choice themselves. The only additional thing I would want to bring up is that in the case of eating disorders, the inconsistent and poor nutrition really take a toll on the brain as well and can have severe negative affects your ability to think clearly and logically over time. That often times is why people have to be forced to get treatment, just so that they can get some nutrition so they can begin thinking well enough to be able to chose recovery.
  • LB

  • TheCynicalDouche
    TheCynicalDouche 1 month ago @LynaB21 It's the same damn thing: A behavior disorder. You didn't "catch" anorexia from the guy next to you on the bus. It's something that is TOTALLY WITHIN YOUR CONTROL.... unless you think it's not... then it's not. Up to you, bud.
  • LB
    LB 1 month ago Yeah, even though it’s the most fatal mental illness, really those people are just weak willed. The genetic link? Must be those weak willed genes. We all know anorexics woke up one day like “hmm, I should starve today” just like he decided to go out and find someone to sell him some meth. The way your brain works literally has changed, but just ChAnGe YoUr BeHaViOuR. What next? Going to tell people with depression to “just be happy”? Tell people with OCD to “just stop doing it”?
  • TheCynicalDouche
    TheCynicalDouche 1 month ago @LynaB21 OCD is also a behavior disorder and can be controlled, yes. Listen, dipshit, you're talking to someone who did crystal meth for 10 years, binge drank vodka constantly, and smoked cigarettes. I quit them all, bitch... and it was ALL ME. I know the system. I was forced to go through BULLSHIT rehabs that taught you that you were powerless... BECAUSE IT'S A FUCKING BUSINESS. If you are powerless over your addiction, there is nothing you can do... and you'll need more N/A-A/A or whatever bullshit "treatment" that doesn't do anything for you... because it's a business. Anorexia can be overcome.. just as I overcame. Now stfu and move on.. you don't know shit. As someone who comes from a long line of addicts... I know so much more about this than you.. I've actually lived it. You're just another dipshit who repeats whatever the DSM states... wait, you probably don't know what the DSM is.

    Anima Libera 1 month ago Powerful words, TheCynicalDouche! This is so true, and it doesn't matter what the "drug" of choice is. The medical establishment still hasn't figured out that childhood trauma (don't get me wrong, this is serious stuff that needs to be dealt with) is NOT what keeps you overeating/anorexic/boozing away/taking drugs ... (you name it). There comes a time when you have to look at yourself in the mirror and OWN what you are doing to yourself (or to anybody else for that matter) and it is the only way to get on top of it.

  • TheCynicalDouche
    TheCynicalDouche 1 month ago @Lucie McAdams Childhood trauma was mostly the reason I used to drink and use drugs to excess as well. The more I come to terms with my personal issues... the easier it becomes to not use these "coping mechanisms". A very large percentage of people's undesirable behavior stems from childhood trauma or issues. We will continue to repeat the cycle until we take responsibility and control back. I'm proud of you for choosing to move forward and deal with your issues. Everyone wants to be a "powerless victim"... for whatever reason. Well, mostly they've been brainwashed into this mentality... because this mentality keeps the AA/NA/Court ordered rehab/outpatient facility/etc. machine going. I had to go through those programs a few times. They never did anything for me... or anyone else. Too much money at stake to actually help people.
  • TheCynicalDouche

I have like 6-7 20 gallon bags outside the door and i feel great. I now have space for the things I truely love. Who knows maybe from now on I'll shiwer more. I just woke up and I'm going to shower now. I'm a binger btw so I get all the eating/hygeine/will to move thing. Good luck! It's okay to feel confident! To nurture/pamper yourself. Good luck!😘

Learn to love food again and fill your blood with well needed minerals and vitamins. Stick to your your ideal calorie intake and enjoy every single second of it. It’s beautiful.

    Random Channel 1 month ago @Jacki Miller you're absolutely fine. I completely understand. Alot of people are like that (preachy) & tone is difficult to get over text. I also agree that being that way towards people doesn't help at all. :) Have a great night or day
