Hi all- I am in serious need of some help and answers:
I am now 23, almost 24, I started Depo Provera when I was 16. I was due for my most recent shot in October, but missed the appointment and decided to see how I fare off the shot. I have been very moody, verging on depression, and having an impossible time losing weight for some time now and I was beginning to wonder if maybe Depo was the culprit.
Well, to make a long story short, during the month of October I have become severely bulimic. I suddenly have these horrible cravings for terrible food that I never ate before...I will have huge binges (fried chicken fingers, pie, cake, french fries, gravy, cookies, ice cream...the list goes on) to the point of being horribly sick from being so full, then I'll do it all again the next day.
It's a fight with myself every day, all day long: "You will NOT binge tonight", but I fail horribly every time. I have never had the greatest relationship with food, but until the last month I have certainly never had these completely uncontrollable urges to binge like this.
Could this have anything to do with my body coming off of Depo after being on it for so long? This is a horrible disorder and I need to figure out what's going on.
