    I Feel Like Eating Is Wrong.

    It all stems from my self-esteem and being teased and rejected when I was young for my weight. Now, it doesn't matter how much I exercise or how healthy the food is, it always feels like I'm doing something wrong by eating. Like I'm doing something I shouldn't be. It'll get so...

    I Feel Bad After I Cannibalize My Lovers

    Well, all you weight conscious people feel like eating is both pleasurable yet you're overwhelmed with guilt. Therefore, perhaps you can understand the adrenaline rush during my killing and cannibalizing spree and how it's then followed by tremendous remorse. For I only...

    All The Time...

    Sometimes I eat so much in one day.. even if i'm not hungry at all I'll just eat and eat. I feel like a greedy pig but I can't stop eating. I don't know why I eat so much really.. I haven't been able to taste nearly anything I eat for ages now and I have no idea why. That doesn...
