doing worse

My days usually ok, but once the afternoon hits I start screwing up. I was restricting for a while but now I started to binge and purge again. I can't seem to stop. My therapist is very helpful and I see her twice a week. But this next week she is out of the office to go to a conference. I'm kind of freaking out and I'm already doing worse now that I know she won't be there. She said I could text her if I need to but she might not be able to respond back right away. I so badly wish I never got this stupid eating disorder. I feel like I'm never going to get better.

I have felt, and currently

I have felt, and currently feel so much of what you are feeling. But you CAN overcome this! I am certain that you are a beautiful person inside and out. Don't let this disorder tell you otherwise!!! Something that I started doing is writing in a journal before and after every meal. How I am feeling... What decisions I am going to make... Why. It makes me feel as though I am sharing my struggles with someone who I can be completely transparent with, when no one else is accessible. I will be praying for you!
