I have had to deal with Postramatic Stress Disorder and Depression and My weight lose. I grew with Emotionallly and Phyically abusive father. It never help that I was the fat kid. He hated that i was fat. I always thought Postramatic Stress disorder only came from when Sexually abused. But, I was never sexually abused.But, I grew not just a stressful enviroment. I grew scared to death. I lived in constant state of fear of my father. From my earlies memories. I 42 years old and steal dealing with my childhood problems and fears. I learn the best way to deal with is to let them go. Forgive yourself. Forgive the person who hurt you. and If you can't forgive then , Ask God for help and understanding. Everybody has to deal with their anger, shame and hatered in different ways. Just do not let the Past poison your future. Let it go. I wish could say that 12 step program help me. A food Addict is just a small part of an even bigger problem. Trusting people. Trust that people are basically good. When you have seen people at their very worst. It like asking Jewish person to trust Nazi soldier. We eat to cover our pain and fear. So learning what real hunger is just the beginning. It took years just to recover from my Depression and to find hope. You can recover and have good future.
