Eating as much as you can , usually done when one is really depressed and feels empty inside. Binge eating distracts from emotional pain for a short time. This is a real problem and IS NOT occurring just because people have no self control. This is because people are driven to distract themselves from serious emotional stress in their lives. THEY NEED HELP. BE A FRIEND.

A disorder where an individual eats an excessive amount of food in a short period of time and during these episodes feels as if they have no control. A lot of people describe it as a compulsion, binge eating disorder is an illness which is often overlooked and even ignored. It is a lot like bulimia but the individual doesnt participate in activities to 'rid themselves' of the food. This does not mean they don't feel guilt or regret.
Binge eating disorder is also known as BED

Something I have.
No, it's not lack of control.
No, it's not eating as much as you can.
No, it doesn't include guilt or regret (when eating).

People who have this disorder might be:
Depressed
other important mental health issues
Bored (like me)
or others
My family: *switches off the internet*
Me: I'm bored
Me: *starts binge eating*

Life lesson: don't switch off the internet or binge eating disorder will happen
