When I go out to eat, I like to sit in a booth with my back to the wall, in a corner. If I don't have all three of these satisfied then I get extremely insecure and start feeling like everyone's looking at me and thinking "look at that fat girl, how dare she come out and eat in public." I start shaking a little sometimes, and there is no position I can sit in that makes me feel any more safe. But if I'm in a booth with my back to the wall in a corner, I'm perfectly fine.

Does anybody else have any similar issues when they eat in public? Is there anything you can do when you're feeling triggered and insecure that makes you feel a little bit better?

Does anyone know about OA???

I shift from periods of starving myself to periods of overeating in addition to compulsive exercising. Do you think OA is for me? And is anybody here involved with OA (and could tell me more about it)?
