What bulimia taught me about addiction
Both are caused by unaddressed pain on the inside.
You can’t stop eating and you use food as a coping mechanism.
You purge from the guilt but also because it numbs you further.
I used to combine bulimia with pills and alcohol to numb out as much as I could.
You need to repair the relationship you have with yourself, food, life. I needed to allow myself to feel .
I needed to defrost and spend time with myself in that space of allowing emotions.
Then I was able to take it off the mat so to speak, become aware of some pain points and triggers I had .
Walking around like there’s open wounds in a room filled with salt.
Notice how you are when you think about it .
What is your identity with it?
