    What's Eating You?

    I always find myself trying to pinpoint exactly where it all started. At around 8 or 9, I remember getting in trouble and being refused my mom's fresh rice krispie squares. Furious, I reacted by quietly going downstairs, getting my boots and purple winter coat with the colorful...

    I Don't Know Why

    I eat out of boredom.  I eat when I'm frustrated.  I eat when I'm sad.  I eat when I'm not hungry.  What am I trying to fill?  I don't know where it comes from.  I'm not sure how to stop it.
