What's the point!!!

I don't care anymore, and I'm upset about what happened and I feel like just giving into this feeling. It doesn't matter anymore, something happened to someone in my family and he had the surgery but now his face is messed up and I look at him and want to cry. And I keep getting the feeling to binge eat, and I keep doing everything to not give in because of how long I have gone. But now with this, I'm feeling like I don't care anymore and to just give into the feeling I have. You work so hard to not give in and now what's the point. I think it's time to just give in because it doesn't matter.

Why doesn't it matter? Giving

Why doesn't it matter? Giving in would just make you feel even worse about yourself and won't change what happened to your family member. I'm sorry to hear you're struggling, but you would be giving up on everything you have fought so hard for until now if you give in.

You matter

You are important, unique and special. GOD created you for an important reason. We care about you on here. I know it gets tedious and exhausting to deal, but in the long run, you'll be SO much happier. I've been in a similar mind set before. Try to breathe, journal and some other things to get your mind off of your current situation. Maybe go to the mall and walk around, or go for a drive and crank up the tunes. I'm sorry you are hurting and that things are difficult. I'm praying for you.

Hi London162, I'm so sorry to

Hi London162, I'm so sorry to hear what happened to your family member and that you are going through a rough time but please hang in there, and don't give in! If you ever feel like you don't care anymore and need further advice, you can always call the NEDA helpline at (800) 931-2237 and talk to the volunteers; sometimes it feels better talking to a person who can help with what you are going through. Please keep us posted on his recovery and how you are feeling. You are so strong, hang in there!

Hi

I'm ok today. How are you doing? I don't get why so many terrible things are happening to us and it makes me upset and I get that feeling to binge eat. I wish that I just get upset about what happened and not the feeling too.

Hello- I am doing alright, thank you! I'm sorry that you have been going through so much. Feeling the urge to binge eat is definitely frustrating and upsetting, but remember: it is not your fault. Please try to be gentle with yourself & focus on the fact that you have not been giving into the urges which is amazing. I know how hard it is. That feeling is so hard to deal with- but you are doing incredible! Know that. You are wonderful <3
