**Hope this isn't triggering for anyone. I don't specifically mention weight numbers but I do talk about my body size and eating very briefly**
After all these years, I am still struggling with what once was bulimia then it changed to just binge eating and in the last week, I have started purging regularly again. I am weary and have tried to get help from various places over the years.
My last encounter with a dietitian included her telling me to take a lot of Benefiber so I'm not hungry. She is the dietitian that counsels all the ED patients at a local hospital and I saw her as an outpatient because my weight doesn't put me in the low weight category so I don't qualify for her services on a regular basis, not that I really want to now that I hear her advice. I can always eat so I don't think fullness would stop me from using food the way I do.
My other encounter was with a neurologist who I was referred to because I may be having a type of seizure. He totally focused the appointment on my weight, not the seizure, and was so excited to prescribe Topamax because it would cause me to lose a lot of weigh as it suppresses your appetite.
Are there really no professionals who know how to deal with my problem in a way that doesn't involve telling me to go on a diet, fill up on something else or take this drug so you can just stop eating completely. Yeah, that will solve your problem.
So discouraged this is still haunting me after all these years and all the professionals seem to offer dumb advice.
