I traded One Addiction for Another

 

I traded one addiction for another. Overeating is an addiction a lot of people don't want to talk about. Here's my story. Click Here.

When I was younger I definitely had the signs and symptoms of anorexia as a kid and teenager. It was the worst when I was a senior in high school. I was barely eating and it definitely had an affect on my mental and physical health.

I wrote a post about that not too long ago titled Battling an Eating Disorder: From Restricting to Binging that goes into more detail about the situation. But the point was that I had gotten to a point in my life where I was able to power through the hunger pains and eventually they just stopped happening altogether.

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.

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

 

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. 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.
