Today's been a particularly hard day.
On days like that, does anyone else like to order junk food and eat it in bed like a gargoyle?
Just me?

(I know)
It's not the best for my guts or my inflammation, but as someone in ED recovery, I am glad to have found a point where food could be fun and self-comfort on a day like today, not a point of stress.

    I ate an entire tub of yogurt, a bag of Whopper eggs, and an entire thing of Oreos last night because I was having flashbacks and food helps me cope sometimes... Not that it's healthy.

    I eat a lot of junk after stressful day at work and while studying. It makes my weight loss journey that much harder but I'm still trying.

    yup, the best cure for my ptsd is thc and comfort foods. i often like to eat super spicy foods in those moments - always have - partly as like, a safe and acceptable self-inflicted pain? but also an enjoyable thing - i love spicy food to begin with, to the despair of my guts, but when i'm really going through it i like to destroy my intestines as a special treat... lol. other than that, there's a few special foods that always help, mostly specific meals that i associate with good memories ive lost weight recently and am in a healthy range, so i treat myself a little more often as long as i'm not going overboard enough to undo that healthy change. sure i could do with less sugar and carbs but i absolutely think the poor diet is worth the better mental health i get in exchange

    Ugh, yes. Sometimes eating *anything* is better than not at all, even if it leaves me as bloated as the Michelin man! Eating, emotions, and medical health management go hand-in-hand.

    I think eating like a gargoyle 100% makes food taste better 😄 whenever i have a stressful day i just want a big fat quesadilla and that always does the trick (at my gut’s expense) and if I know the aftermath isn’t worth it I’ll just make pan fried rice noodles (it’s much better than it sounds!!) its like guilty pleasure without the guilt :)

    I plan on getting Chick-fil-a tomorrow and eating alone like the bad ass demon I am.
