Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am so very sorry to hear what you are struggling about. I could see that you have tried so many different approaches. You clearly know what you need to do so that isn't the issue --- for you to learn what you need to do. I have over time treated quite a few people like you who have tried everything --- like you. The success I have had with those people who did enter analysis with me was for us to get at the root of their problems --- in fact we hardly talked about the eating issue but dealing with the unconscious issues that were interfering in these people's lives made the eating disorder disappear. For some, long finished treatment, they never binged or purged again, didn't go on crazy diets --- the eating disorder problem disappeared and they have moved on to an otherwise happy life.
Let me know when you are back on so we may chat.
