I still find your posts and approach inspiring and instructive. Don't leave!

I'm not leaving, just feeling a bit down. I like your no nonsense way of dealing with things and I admire the fact that you don't deprive yourself of anything. Thanks.

"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
