I just wanted to drop in and say massive props to you for getting in touch with Samaritans today, even though it sounds like you had a super rough morning. Nice to hear you found some sanctuary in the library, too.
Honestly? No. It could seem childish when you compare it to what we would usually consider a rational response, but when we're under a lot of pressure or emotions are running high then we can do things that, in hindsight, might seem uncalled for, but are ultimately justified by the way we were feeling in that moment. The main thing to bear in mind with this is that nothing can really be considered unreasonable if it feels right at the time. After all, we can't help our feelings, right?
It sounds like you've got a pretty good mindset with regards to trying to get support and helping yourself too, even though doing that sounds like it's coming with a lot of baggage. Credit where it's due - you're doing really well. :yes:
Hoping you're doing a little better *hug*

Aw, I'm glad it feels good to talk about it. Having some form of outlet is certainly important, and as long as it works for you then it doesn't necessarily matter if it's happening online or face to face.
I think most people would agree that it's perfectly reasonable to feel like joining slimming world (or having to deal with any extra thing at this stage) is too much, to be honest. What makes you feel unable to tell your mum about your emotional eating? You're right in picking up on the fact that it needs to be the right time for you rather than anyone else. :yes:

Sounds like a tough situation to be in, it's really good that you're talking it through on the boards though. That's Ok to feel as though you can't tell your mum about the emotional eating, have you been able to speak to anyone else about whats been going on?
You were saying that you feel ashamed about binging in secret and buying stiff from the shops. What's causing you to feel ashamed about this?
It's really positive that you feel able to to speak to us about what's happening.

No worries Apandav! It's really good that you feel able to talk about what's going on for you here on the boards. How did you find speaking to your doctor and psychologist and mentor about it?
Sounds like it's difficult for you. It's really positive that you're talking about it though. How long have you been emotional eating for?
Thanks for updating us about how your therapy appointment went too and for letting us know that you've started a new thread too

Hi Hannah sounds like you have a lot on, how are things?
A lots happened, had a bad week last week and I've now confirmed with my psychologist that I want to get tested for aspergers. So apparently the waiting list is long, but still going to therapy (which is tough )
