Today the police were called after a particularly bad fight in my house. My brother was arrested (for domestic abuse, I think) and will be facing charges in juvenile court. Needless to say, there's enormous amounts of emotional upheaval in my house, and personally it's dredging up my own memories of years of abuse.
I'm doing my best not to fall into the trap of binge-eating to cover up or soothe my emotions. But, as I imagine that some of you out there already know, it's a hard battle. If you have any tips, please share.
