im starting to think i have a very serious problem. i have always been abit chubby but not necessarily overweight, food was never an issue to me, i ate whenever i felt hungry and was never a junk food person. this all changes 2 years ago when my life starting taking a hard turn. i became unemployed, with no home or income and use to crash at friends for a whole year, i was so unsettled that my eating habits changed so much. i starting getting addicted to junk food and anything thats not healthy. it made me feel better, i felt happier. i guess that was my way of coping since i dont smoke or drink. i gained 3 stones in 6 months and got devistated. i decided to lose it and managed to lose 2.5 stones by following a healthy eating regime and excersising. but soon after my habit of comfort eating starting again, once i started work and had alot on my mind. mainly what i do is have a big junk meal and then ice cream, chocolates and everything i can get my hands on. i eat until i start feeling pain, it makes me feel so bad after im done and i start crying hesterically but the next day i repeat it again. everyday i tell myself this is the last time but it never ends. is this an eating disorder i dont know about, has it been recognised medically because its ruining my life. please please help, im geting depressed since im someone who is happy when i look good, if not i start hating myself and locking myself in, dont go out at all and dont want anyone to see me.

please help me

What you're describing happens to a lot of people. I used to eat my feelings, too, as does my dad.

Have you thought about what drives you to eat? Have you settled your life again? If you're feeling depressed, a good counselor can help you identify what it is that's pulling you down, and help you identify ways to beat it without binging on junk food.
