evening all, I guess my post name describes me well!!I am an emotional eater and I have a love/hate relationship with food and long to be able to control my intake rather than find myself eating when trying to think things through or cope with something new. Like many others on this site I have health problems, one of which is chronic neuropathic pain in my face, After 10 operations to address chronic sinusitus in the 1980/90s I have been left with daily pain and try to take each day as it comes. Developing pulsating tinitus 18 months ago has lead to depression and I recently started seeing a long term counsellor. At the time eating is a 'comfort' its just afterwards that I hate myself for not being more in control. So today I have joined this group to be honest and try to take some control back. I NEED TO LOSE 2 AND A HALF STONE TO FIT BACK INTO MY CLOTHES!!
