I Eat When I Am Bored and to Bury My Feelings

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 234 People

    I can't help it! It's a nasty circle.

    I eat when I am stressed. I also eat when I am bored. I eat when I am watching TV. I don't know why but I do but I feel better when I eat. I feel satisfied but only for a moment but then I just feel worse. It's a nasty circle!

    My Life and Emotions Revolve Around Food

    when there's a death people bring food to the family, when there's family gatherings the table is full of food, when we celebrate there is food handed out it's such a intertwined element in life it just makes sense to eat for no reason

    Food Is <3

    When I'm bored I find myself in the kitchen looking for a snack. It always seems to cheer me up when I feel blue. Food is made of love, especially when I take ingredients and throw them together.

    Recognizing It Is a Healthy Step, Right?

    I know that this is what I do.  As I reach for the raw cookie dough, I know I am doing it to feel better about wasting my time when I should be accomplishing something.  I know that during the fourth trip to the fridge in as many minutes, nothing has changed, but I...

    When I'm alone and bored at home I'm usually horny too, so put my hand in my pants and touch myself. This normally turns into a wanking session after too long.
