“I have an emotional problem with a physical manifestation which requires a spiritual solution.”
This phrase sure encapsulates my disease. I was stuck in a demented merry-go-round before recovery. I would eat something ‘bad’…feel regretful…so eat more…which would make me frustrated…so eat even more…which would make me feel depressed…which I thought food would help. Crazy! I was physically manifesting all over myself!
Luckily I found OA and a power greater than myself. When I have an emotional problem today, I have tools to use, people to connect with, and most importantly a power beyond what I ever had before. So nice to finally get off of that merry-go-round. Huzzah!
