Depression, anxiety and panic attacks are NOT a sign of weakness. They are signs of having tried to remain strong for too long. Did you know that 1 in 3 of us go through this at some point in our lives? Would you post this for at least one day? Most people won’t but it’s Mental Health Awareness Week. Share the support. Let those who struggle know they’re not alone…
Sincere thanks to...

I certainly admit this, and freely. At times, too many times, I have food in my hand and am eating uncontrollably. If I were to put it down I would feel as deprived as a baby that had had its dummy taken away, and this is indeed for exactly the same reasons. My 'dummy', my food, is my comfort; the eternal numbing of feelings that I don't want to have and, at the time this all started, honestly could not cope with! I took to food when I was 11 years old to give me something in my life that would not let me down, would always be there, would not give me guilt, shame, blame, humiliation, lack of trust and so many other negative things that was all I received from my primary care-givers that I am ashamed to call my parents. I remained living at home for another 7 years plenty of time for the addiction to have fully set in. And of course the damage that my primary care-givers did to me emotionally has been the gift that kept on giving, that kept me turning to food as comfort because I had been given zero coping skills. No way at all to defend myself against every bully that has crossed my path even since I moved out of home. The strong will say "Well why don't you just speak out?" "Why don't you ." and the list goes on. The answer to that is so simple. I would truly love to have defended myself a million times over, but when you are crushed so thoroughly as a child, and also have a gentle nature, the strong advice offered is as impossible to carry out as for them to fly to the moon!
I was not even allowed emotions I could not be upset when I was hurt (physically or emotionally), I could not be angry. I could not even be happy that was very quickly crushed! As an adult I once put my hand into a sink to pick up a teaspoon, not knowing that the inch of water in there had just been poured from a boiling kettle. I didn't change my facial expression, I didn't make a sound, I just continued listening to my co-worker as if nothing had happened, even though she screamed "Noooo!" too late to stop me. My emotions had learned to be so thoroughly hidden. No wonder I allow people to verbally slap me in the face so often and I only blink, but otherwise continue to smile politely and chat, and then crumble afterwards.
All of my achievements were stolen from me and accredited thoroughly to one of my parents, who took all the credit, and also spent my whole life convincing me that the other parent didn't love me. As an adult I now see the truth, neither parent loved me or my brothers either they are incapable of true love because of their own 'conditions'. I truly accept this now. It just was what it was and there's nothing anyone can do about it. I don't eat over my past pain. I eat over my present pain because I still don't have the coping skills to stand up to life, so I hide and eat and think about the comfort of food instead of the situations. If I was 'normal' (is there such a thing?) I would brush hurtful words away, knowing they were wrong, and take no notice at all.
