I’ve gained so much weight from binge eating and bc I got fixated on cheeseburgers bc of my adhd and now I don’t feel attractive anymore and hate looking at myself in the mirror 😞 I don’t realize I’m hungry until I’m literally starving and will eat anything

      Gosh I feel you on this. I was comfort eating constantly because my mood was so low. Plus my ex was constantly dropping sly digs, every time I would reach for chocolate. Since I broke up with my ex I have had much better focus on self care. So I don't just reach for the quick and easy. Try and keep healthy snacks in, this way you can have a snack while you cook yourself a nice meal. I've lost nearly 2 stone since Christmas just because I'm eating better. I didn't think it was possible, I hated looking at myself. But it can be done. You can do it ❤️

      I get what you mean. Sometimes, especially at night, I'll find myself laying there in bed thinking about one specific food that I know is in the kitchen, and I just can't get rid of that thought until I go and get it. And then I feel bad about getting it because I wasn't hungry. I have been overweight for a while now, and kind of half working on dieting and exercising, but my depression has made that really difficult. So I definitely say you're not alone. I try to distract myself from that thought was something completely different and engrossing so that maybe I forget I had that thought. I've had mixed results with this tactic, but right now it's the best I've got. I'm also going to group therapy 3 days a week, and actually now that you've brought this up I'm thinking I might mention this to them on Tuesday and see if they have any advice for me. Lol If they have anything, I'll be sure to tell you.

      Why is it that depression and ADHD feed off of each other so much!? Not with food, necessarily, but I have similar experiences where one has made the other worse and it just spirals.
