    I was just diagnosed with this today.

    So I'm trying to learn as much as I can. Anyone taking Topamax for it? My Dr prescribed it. We'll see how it works. What has ur experience been with this disorder?

    I began to binge eat

    when I was a senior in highschool, it all started when I decided to drop a couple pounds after my boyfriend told me he liked me because I wasn't too skinny. That should have been a compliment, right? Well I took it as being fat. So I began to diet. It started out great but I...
