I see no problem with you trying a banana.
Obviously you have a big problem with the binging.
and I am glad you are seeing the doctor tomorrow.
but from a practical standpoint
if you are feeling okay and not having abdominal pain now and wish to try a banana there is no reason not to do this.
reasons not to try it would be vomiting, increasing abdominal pain, and fever to name a few.
are you there?
Earlier today was the first time I had tried anything at all in over 24 hours and it was just a glass of almond milk and after trying it I felt nausea and that is why I was a little nervous to try anything else till after I seen the dr tomorrow..about the binging I researched alot these few
last few days and it seems i might be bulimic..I just did not know because i do not ever make myself throw up so I assumed that was the definition of bulimic..but I do sometimes binge and then not eat for days or exercise excessively so I will talk to the dr about that tomoorow
good. that will be an important talk to have.
do you have other questions for me tonight?
do you need a good reference on eating disorders?
no reference necesary thank you and my question is do you think I have harmed myself internally or my body is just taking sometime to digest well
no, I do not think you have harmed yourself internally. it IS possible to eat to such excess that one ruptures their esophagus or other portion of the GI tract.
when this happens people get very sick over the course of hours, with increasing pain, vomiting, and fever.
so I do not think THIS is a concern
You may be very constipated from the fiber, as, contrary to popular belief, it is not really a laxative, but a bulk forming agent that pulls water into the stool making it softer
but if you aren't getting enough water you can get constipated
ok great, no constipation here, everything is well in that end but thank you for telling me that fiber can affect you like that and I was worried to eat again would cause me pain on the inside but I have no increasing pain or anything that you named and that was Tuesday so two days ago so I too am going to trust that I am well
I think that there is no emergency here, and that you have an eating disorder, perhaps binge-eating disorder... being honest with your doctor tomorrow is VERY important as is a desire to overcome this.
no worries on the being honest part..I know I need help just did not realize I could binge that way..it had never happened that badly before usually it would be a 2 or 3 days binge on junk but not eating to the point of pain..I appreciate your time and hope you have a great night
I hope you have a great night too, and I hope you have good success in making some important changes.
I will =) Thank you
