Binge eating

Hi all,

I have recently realised I have an eating disorder, binge eating. I think ive had it for quite a few years. I used to only binge when i was stressed or upset, but now its all the time and i cant stop. I hide it from my partner and others in my life.

Today within half an hour I binged on one snack. I couldnt stop myself doing it.

I have been under a lot of stress recently and im pretty sure this is related. I have signed up for counselling but on a waiting list.

I always thought with things like this, the hardest partnwas admitting you have a problem and knowinf what has caused it. I know both of things but still cant stop. Does anyone have any advise?

For reference i am 33, a mum of 1 and live in the UK.
