I never thought I would ever have an eating disorder but when I lost my job whilst staying in a foreign country things fell apart for me and I developed bulimia. I was in denial in the beginning and pretended to everyone that everything was ok but the bingeing got worse and so did the restriction which followed and the cycle just got worse and worse. I didn’t like how I looked, how I felt or who I was. I was in a really bad way. I was so grateful to have found Aleeza and although we’ve never met face to face our virtual calls were my lifeline. You gave me the structure that I needed to get my life on track again both with my eating and also in general. You helped me learn how to stop the binge-purge cycle by eating regular meals of foods that were safe; how to delay binges and use distraction techniques when I felt the urge. I needed to stop buying binge foods and to avoid being alone at home and you helped me to practically implement this. Whilst writing this I realise how much progress I have made- the binges have stopped and I’ve lost the weight so I feel so much better about how I look. I feel more in control with my eating and take care in planning my meals and snacks. I still treat myself but in appropriate and safe ways and I still keep my food and mood diary which helps to keep me on track. I am now applying for a new job and feel more hopeful about my future. Thank you for everything you have done for me!
