Food Abuse both ways

I know it often stems from anxiety, but my food problems swing on a pendulum. Right now as i am having a very stresseful time, i'm not very interested in food. This began with un-eating. I'm not shuddering at the smell of food or mention of it, which is a welcome change, but I just can't eat as much. Maybe this isn't such a problem. Some people choose breakfast cereal based on the prize in the box. When I am reaaaally stressed and I know anything could set me off, I choose food that isn't going to taste like kerosene coming back up. Sorry to say that if anyone's offended... my problems just don't seem to fit into any nice little niche here.
Then sometimes I eat whatever I see wether I'm hungry or not.
Trying to find some middle ground...


Hi IronSmile    
"I hope you are doing OK, IronSmile. These addictions are crazy things. I can't understand what a food addiction like yours is like. However my sister suffered from a similar problem for quite a few years. She was able to recover and I know you can too. The nice thing about addiction recovery is that it's all pretty much the same. Work the steps, WORK the steps."

"Are you battling a demon of addiction—tobacco or drugs, or the pernicious contemporary plague of ography? Whatever other steps you may need to take to resolve these concerns, come first to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Trust in heaven’s promises. In that regard Alma's testimony is my testimony: "I do know," he says, "that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions."
