Hello
Therapy
It is not self help
Have you seen a therapist?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have just started seeing one. I have only seen her once. We have one hour sessions a week but she has been ill so have not seen her for two weeks. I am desperate to change but I dont know how. Everyday I wke up thinking today I wil eat 1700cals or whatever, then by 9:00 I am binging and I am eating over 20000 cals in a couple of hours. Then the next day it all starts again. I dont know what to do.

You have to see your therapist, and it can take several months to start making progress.
There is no quick fix to this situation, it is not self help, there is no pill, unless you also have an anxiety disorder. In this case your regular doctor can prescribe medication.
