Binge Eating Cravings Is Worse Than Alcoholism

Binge Eating Cravings Is Worse Than Alcoholism

 

This is going to be a deep dive into my experience with binge eating and how it’s become worse for me to handle than my alcoholism.

I have been suffering with eating disorders my whole life. They started when I was around 11 or so, but not like they normally start. I’ll go into that more later.

But I’ve only been dealing with binge eating for the past 5 years or so. I used to be one who restricted and restricted badly. So binge eating is the complete opposite of what I was used to.

This turned my life upside down.

I’ve been dealing with alcoholism since college, but it wasn’t until 2014 when I hit my lowest of lows that I stopped drinking altogether.

This is my story.

I’ve written a bit about CBD on this blog, but this is going to be my testament towards CBD and how helpful it’s been for me in the long run.

CBD most definitely changed my life.

Anyone who’s met me in real life knows that I’m a giant ball of anxiety. I work on that every year and get closer to being more “normal” and not give off such anxious vibes, and CBD has made a big impact on that.

What REALLY Is CBD?: Dismissing the Stigma

What REALLY Is CBD?: Dismissing the Stigma

 

There’s a stigma against CBD or cannabidiol.

I recently realized just how bad it went when I was told my Pinterest board for my CBD posts was against their guidelines.

How crazy is that!?

(Granted, that’s because they consider it medical advice, which I think is kind of bs, but whatever…)

To me that would be like banning alcohol content. Both are completely legal, but only one has a stigma against it.

So, what REALLY is CBD?

How to Be Your Best Advocate at the Doctor

How to Be Your Best Advocate at the Doctor

 

Everyone has to go to the doctor at some point in their life, right? What happens when you and that doctor disagree on a diagnosis? What do you do when you feel they aren’t listening to your concerns or taking you seriously?

I’ve had both of these things happen to me a few years ago when it came to my hypothyroid diagnosis. I had to fight tooth and nail to get them to even listen to me and even then they didn’t listen.

Learning to how to be your best advocate at the doctor is a huge part of your adult life. Some people think that just because a doctor said so, it has to be right, right?

Well, not necessarily.

This is What Anxiety Looks Like

This is What Anxiety Looks Like

This is what anxiety looks like. In this post I show you what anxiety really is and how it can ruin your life in an instant. Click here. #anxiety #thisiswhatanxietylookslike #anxious #panicattack #mentalbreakdown

This is what anxiety looks like.

Anxiety is no joke. A lot of people tend to write it off as others just worrying too much about things, but it’s really more than that.

Anxiety can consume you. It can eat you alive. It can make you think things that aren’t true. It weaves itself through your mind to cause so many more problems than there really are.

I’ve been dealing with anxiety for most of my life. My parents have it and I expect it’s partially hereditary, partially my childhood.

Anxiety can make you go from a relatively normal day to thinking that everyone hates you and you’re not worth a cent.

This is what anxiety looks like.

This is What Depression Looks Like

This is What Depression Looks Like

What does depression look like? Everyone is different, but what it's not is just feeling sad or having a bad day. This is what depression looks like. #depression #whatdepressionlookslike

Depression is something a lot of us go through. It’s also something that’s played up a bit in media. The stereotypes are something that makes me feel bad because I’m not having the same time I’m being told I should.

Depression is a lot of things, but it’s not just feeling sad for a little bit. It’s not just being down for a day or two. Depression has many other symptoms that a lot of people tend to gloss over.

How to Relax When You Don’t Know How to Relax

How to Relax When You Don’t Know How to Relax

Sometimes we just don't know how to relax. There can be a lot going on and we just can't turn our brains off. Click here to find out how to relax #relax #anxiety

I know, weird title, right? But hear me out.

Sometimes people with anxiety or those who are a little more high strung than others have the inability to relax. We literally don’t know how to relax because our bodies just won’t let us. Our brains won’t stop running and our bodies tense up. We just don’t know how to relax.

So what does one do when they don’t know how to relax?

Well, you have to figure out a few things and you need to have an open mind about it all. Doesn’t sound hard, but a lot of us who are ruled by anxiety and highly tense, that can be a big feat for us.

Depression Saved Me From the Virus But Not the Pandemic

Depression Saved Me From the Virus But Not the Pandemic

This entire virus pandemic has been crazy from the start. My journey with the virus started back in January when I first started hearing about things brewing over in China. My depression wasn’t too bad then, but I’m convinced it saved me from catching it.

However, once things made their way over to the US, my depression started to worsen. I was working remotely for my job for a few weeks, then ultimately was let go due to financial issues because no one’s hiring IT in the middle of the pandemic. I’m not afraid to admit that I cried like a baby when I heard that news. I called up my supervisor and just cried to her. I loved where I worked and was looking forward to going back into the office when everything was done and over with.

So, now I’m dealing with being unemployed during a pandemic. Thankfully, I do have my depression to thank for one thing, it definitely did save my from the virus. However, it didn’t save me from the pandemic.
