I posted a couple of other posts on other boards. I'm a binge eater but it correlates with my moods, which perhaps states the obvious.
I am perhaps looking for like minded souls or those who can relate to having intermittent feelings of being, not down as such but almost frantic alongside feeling apathy.
It's hard to tell how much is due to lack of sleep, interestingly, for me, if I had a night with no sleep with my baby, it feels very similar to how I feel when I get low. Today I woke up and felt I could function everyone was happy (isn) and it's going well. Yesterday I woke up and I didn't want to move. I felt apathy about everything, and then a frantic want for food. Any food and large amounts. I am almost frightened of myself when I get like that. I will drive frantically to the shops and grab everything I can, my stomach will hurt and I will keep eating.
I'm sorry this is a self indulgent post, I just wondered how others cope. I know I'm lucky that I don't feel this every day. It's almost like a spoilt brat syndrome and then I feel so guilty when I feel better again, I want to do everything I can to help other people as I'm so selfish when I'm "down". Plus I also must gain about ten pounds in a day. I probably need psychological help but that isn't an option. I just wondered how you all cope, and if anyone has been like me...
I wish you all the best of luck x
