Default Don't Like Food, But Can't Stop Eating

I don't particularly like food, but I just can't stop eating. Especially at night. The only time I can stop eating is when I'm under extreme stress which means I usually don't eat while I'm at work.

But once I'm home, I guess the depression hits me and I just can't stop myself. I don't keep much food at home, but I always buy fast-food on my way home from work. I eat and eat. It's not enough to feel full. I've eaten so much at times that my own stomach can't handle it and I've spontaneously thrown up.

Looking in the mirror is so utterly painful at times. Most days I go to sleep hoping I never wake up again.

Default Re: Don't Like Food, But Can't Stop Eating

I know how you feel. There have been times with my depression where I seriously go the whole day with food going in my mouth. And I can't stop. It has helped me to understand the different kinds of emotional eating and the different ways we use food to cope. It's not just as simple as calling it emotional eating. It's more complex than that. And it's not as simple as keeping a food log or dieting. I have had to understand the different emotional connections I have to food and how to rewire my brain to be okay without that comfort and find comfort elsewhere.
