Thanks for sending me the link! I will definitely check it out and subscribe. I just don't know about going to an in-person meeting. I think my fear is being recognized or running into someone later on at work or in public.

thank you for posing and answering this question. OA was quite helpful to me at one point, but there was no group where me moved next. I'll check out this link.

Above is a link to Spark Team "Overeaters Anonymous" I have thoroughly enjoyed many Spark Teams and find them supportive. I hope this one works for you.

I don't have any answers but I'll check it out and get back to you with what I find out!! I subscribed to this discussion so I can find it again. I used to go to OA meetings many years ago, I think you would feel quite comfortable in one. I was like you, and i did feel comfortable, I didn't feel like I stuck out like a huge sore thumb, and there's all shapes and sizes of people there. Everyone has their own story and MANY were much more troubled than mine. They all shared uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, as did I. It was comforting to know I wasn't alone with a problem all by myself.
It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a facade of order - and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order.

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone else has participated or knows how to participate in the online version of OA. My nutritionist and therapist have both recommended that I try this out (the group in general). I do not feel like I am at a point in my life/recovery/whathaveyou that I could actually go to a meeting and face people or do it over the phone. I'd rather be anonymous. Thanks for any help in advance :)
