Seriously scared for my health and my life. I think that I have an addiction to food. It has taken me almost 2 years to figure this out. My eating is out of control. I have no idea how to stop it. I need help and support but I have no idea where to go or who to talk to for help. I've realized that my eating has gotten so bad and to the point that I use money we don't have and I hide it from my husband. I try so hard to stop but I cave in and I feel so guilty, ashamed, disgusted and I truly hate myself for what I am doing to my body and what it is going to do to my family or what it is already doing to my family. But I don't know how to stop. I eat and I feel miserable and I'm consumed by the guilt and I cant help but think "Is this it? Is this the last meal I will ever eat? Is this the day that I have finally killed myself?" I want to stop. I don't want to kill myself. I need help.
I don't know what to do. I'm scared.
I didn't know exactly where to post this and you don't have to reply. I just needed to tell someone.

You are self-medicating yourself with food. Covering the deeper issues you have. Start with an appointment with your regular Dr. Tell him what you have told us, Print this out even. He will refer you to a mental health Dr. that can help you address the real issues you are dealing with. Hurry, don't wait, call your Dr. today.
