Improving My Relationship With Food


I’ll be talking about my unhealthy relationship with food and my self-destructive habits.

I am not writing this post to demean myself but as an acknowledgement that I have developed an unhealthy relationship with food.

In my life, I have been diagnosed with chronic depression, an unspecified anxiety disorder and, more recently, Borderline Personality Disorder.
It took a while for me to come to terms with many things, my relationship with food being one.

I have yet to find, or stick with, a healthy coping mechanism. I swapped between self-harm and binge drinking off and on for years. For the most part, I have overcome those issues, but now my issue is binge eating.

Food became a comfort for me. I’d eat my weight in take-aways, I’d binge chocolate, and I’d happily waste money on any food that would bring me temporary comfort, despite having food in my home.

This behaviour has impacted my weight and my finances and made my mental health feel much worse.
I need to do better, and I need help to do so. I’ll be bringing this up with my psychiatrist when I talk to them next.
In the meantime, I’ve been Googling some helpful methods of improving a person’s relationship with food, and I’ll be sharing the links in this post.
