  1. It seems the only time I'm happy or relaxed is when I'm eating junk food or drinking alcohol. Can anyone relate? Why do I need these drugs to feel happy in life? Why do I have to be numbed out by a drug to feel happy? My mom (who I live with) watches how much and how often I drink and discourages me from drinking, because she's afraid I'm going to use it as a crutch or as an unhealthy coping mechanism to try to cope with my life and social anxiety. BTW my mom doesn't drink, and my dad barely drinks.
  2. I have a serious problem with using food as a coping method for stress & anxiety. It's mostly when I come home from work after a long day, or get home after a stressful situation. Sometimes it's for no apparent reason at all, just the habit. Bread based foods are particularly bad because they make me sleepy, which makes me relaxed. I feel not unlike an alcoholic - it's having significant physical, social, psychological and especially financial impacts. Actually sending me broke. I was wondering whether to ask my doctor for an increase in antidepressant dose, but I feel that would be like be putting a little bandaid over it. I've tried various medications in the past aimed at helping me regulate my eating, but no luck. (Thinking of buying a pavlok bracelet, use it to train myself away from purchasing & eating so much food.) Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with addictive coping mechanisms? Or alternatives I could pursue? Many thanks for reading!
  3. Hi y'all.... I am 39 and exhausted ? When will this hell end? That moment when you're in the grocery store and you find yourself going down the snack cake isle .... heart starts to race ,you even start to get panicky and hot all over almost break into a sweat hoping that the strong hold of food addiction and the need to purge surpasses. ..... but it doesn't ? That bastard wins again! Next you find yourself in the parking lot looking around hoping that no one is around to witness what's about to happen..... I WANT TO FREE ! I WANT TO LIVE LIFE NORMALLY ! WHYYYYYYY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME? TO YOU?
  4. Okay, so.. My crazyboards blog title here used to be 'happiness is a warm pizza.' Now, I don't agree with that. Lots of things have happened to make me realize what kind of problem I have. When I was visiting my girlfriend, I was disappointed when we didn't eat as much as we could have. I stole a slice of pizza from her when her grandmother said it was okay, even though she didn't get to eat much of it at all. We went to a sushi bar, and I was pouting-- pouting-- when she told me to put a little plate back because we reached our 20 dollar budget. My whole life has revolved around food. When I'm happy, I eat. When I'm sad, I eat. When I'm angry, I eat. I look forward to food every day. Well, recently I haven't been looking forward to it as much as I have in the past. Whenever I eat, I feel like I shouldn't be. Hell, I went to the doctor last week and I weighed 270. That's about 24 more pounds than I weighed over the summer. I went back today, and I was 277lbs. Granted, I was wearing a heavy jacket, I still.... God, I knew I had to curb my appetite, but this means I really really need to lose weight. I'm a compulsive overeater. I have been since my father decided to overfeed me as a baby. It just stuck. And now I'm pushing 300lbs and wondering what the hell I'm going to do. I feel like I'm out of control. My weight is just the icing on the cake. I eat like a pig, and I'm absolutely disgusted with myself. All I see is fat. I used to just see chub, but now I'm morbidly obese and I just.. I feel awful. I'm trying not to eat as much as I have before, and I've been doing a good job, but I think it's the things I eat. I don't know. I just wanted to put this here. For the first time in a long time I feel like my body is out of my control and I hate not having control within myself. I hate it. I hate it so much. I'm going to talk with my tdoc about this. I just wanted to .. you know, put this here. I'm going to need help. If anybody has any advice, it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
