Before this, there was psychotherapy and psychiatry, antidepressant tablets that I took for 24 years and other medications such as benzo. They diagnosed me as a person with an ”eating disorder” and ”depressed.” I started early in life to compensate with exercise, laxation, vomiting, etc. When I was helped to understand in adulthood that this was not an eating disorder, that the eating disorder was my addiction brain, then the pieces of the puzzle began to come into place.
I pushed myself to exhaustion time and time again and eventually had to be hospitalized because my heart almost stopped beating. In all these years, I was never asked about other outlets, i.e. do you smoke? do you drink a lot of alcohol? are you gambling? etc. they were only focused on ”eating a little bit of everything, and stop focusing on sugar.”
THE SOLUTION: The knowledge that I have an “addiction brain” and then I got the right treatment! Food became my medicine and I learned strategies to deal with my cravings, my anxiety, insomnia, etc. When the brain got the right fuel-mix, the healing started, along with a holistic treatment. So today I am in a stable recovery since over 8 years back, from sugar, nicotine, alcohol, benzo and other tablets etc.
