Double the Trouble

This is what I know about a binge.  The very issue or feeling I’m trying to escape eventually needs to be felt.  Unfortunately, escaping in the form of a binge results in additional bad feelings (i.e. shame, guilt).

In the end, bingeing just doubles the negative feelings that need to be processed.  It’s such a great coping mechanism in the moment but leaves tremendous damage in its wake.

One thought on “Double the Trouble

  1. Totally agree! It’s so hard when the emotions come without the dampening of a binge. But, without the binge, intense emotions ebb and flow and pass. With the binge, it’s like that lay in wait..waiting to reappear (ugghhhhh).

    I totally agree with the ‘double trouble’ idea!
