It all adds up and comes back and hits you. At least for me.
What? This blog post definitely does not suit me. I actually have BED. Her 1 binge episode is something that those of us with BED live with regularly. It's not a phase. What the heck is she talking about?

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
