So, I have been struggling with severe emotional eating, and have now started abstinence from carbs and sugar, since they are the two biggest factors in my emotional eating. Since abstaining, I have found that really strong emotions and memories pertaining to my episode of PP in 2013 have come up. I am no longer hiding my feelings from myself with food, so it is all out in the open naked.
Today, I hallucinated a moth, and it triggered a panic attack that I might be going back to "that place" and took an antianxiety medication and my antispychotic to calm me down. I am bipolar 1, so psychotic symptoms can be run of the mill for me. I feel stable on the other hand.
How do I deal with these repressed emotions and memories that are now all in my face? I have nothing to hide them with anymore, and I feel very vulnerable.1
