Note to members who have joined our website

Greetings,

Thank you again for becoming a member on our website. As a member, we would like your input and feedback about what is, and what is not, working for you. If you have any questions about eating disorders or treatments, or more general queries please feel free to ask. Also, please feel free to comment on the tools found on this website such as the compulsive overeating/bulimia nervosa worksheet. Your feedback is helpful for us to improve this service for yourself and for other members.

In clinical practice, the eating worksheet is extremely valuable. It helps to identify what is making the eating problem better and worse. Although eating disorders are chronic, , there are times when they are better and worse. By identifying, and then addressing, the factors that make the eating problem worse, these difficulties will lessen. Likewise, by increasing those elements in your life which have a positive influence on your eating habits, the eating obsessions will decrease.

It is not always easy to identify and change stressors, and it is made more difficult if you try to do it alone. The help of a support will make it easier for you. We on the website are here to support you, but a social friend who you can meet up with is also important.

As we have said many times, this website is not in place of getting professional help for your problems. It is instead aimed at supporting you through your difficulties and giving you new ideas to tackle this problem.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have, and also let us know if this approach is working for you. Feedback can be invaluable at improving our service as well as helping other members of this website community.

Kind regards,

Charles Fishman
