* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Resources on Compulsive Overeating
« on: November 16, 2014, 09:01:42 pm »
I'm trying to help a friend who is struggling with compulsive overeating.  Does anyone have recommendations for websites, books or other resources on the subject? 

Thanks!

Is it binge eating with feelings of loss of control and shame or guilt? If so, it might be Binge Eating Disorder (BED) and the BEDA site has helpful resources.

If it's not, I don't really know if the site will be of use, or what to suggest. Sorry.

Has she seen a medical professional? That's the first step I'd recommend. A good psychiatrist would be able to diagnose and treat the root of her compulsion - or indeed if it was simply psychological and not medical! She may, after all, have some underlying medical issue that is causing her to overeat. I've been there myself...

Thanks Morag.  I'll pass the link along to see if they can get anything out of it.

It's a nice thought, but due to a lot of different factors, isn't an option for them at the moment. Hence, the looking for some other resources.
