Hibiscus and Lala, I can relate. I suffer badly from depression, and when I'm down I crave carbs/sugar. I'll curl up in my bed with a book and eat four bowls of cereal or 12 slices of toast or a big bag of chips plus a bag of Bridge Mixture.
For some strange reason, I DON'T eat when I'm angry. I feel very "in control", and I clean my house like a crazy person.

Therapy has helped somewhat, but the ready availability of food as a coping mechanism makes binging a hard habit to break.
