Today I talk about the different ways that bingeing can help other than comforting us.
It can express a wish for more (as in, hungry for love)
It can be a way of converting emotional pain to physical pain.
It can be a way of managing objectification.
It can symbolically fill a void.
It can be a way of managing fear of happiness.
Check out the show for more details and strategies on how to create change when it comes to Binge Eating. There is hope!
