I have been having anxiety & depression ever since my father passed away in 2018…to me it still feels recent. I never got help till 2021, I was resisting I didn’t wanna face that i needed help, it made me feel weak. Until my partner kept on pushing me to look for help because I was getting very angry all the time & arguing everything bothered me out of nowhere. I’m also a stay at home mom. So I decided I really needed to get help for me and also because I have to kids that depend on me. I got diagnosed with bipolar disorder, i have my psychiatrist and I also had taken counseling. I don’t have counseling anymore because I felt at the time I was doing better with grief and my emotions. Now….. my question is people that have anxiety tend to eat when feeling anxiety? I feel like when I have very bad anxiety I tend to over eat like binge eating and it’s the worst because I feel horrible afterwards. How can I control this? Does anyone else here go through this?

      @Izumi of course! Or if you need a good rant I'm around and probably downing a bag of pretzels I'll have to run off tomorrow 😆

      I eat when I get anxious sometimes too. It distracts me and I discovered it is actually an oral fixation. Is there something you can chew on in those moments? Gum maybe?

        @Mallie I’ll definitely try chewing gum then, see if that will help. Thank you! 💕
