@mmmfood, yes, doing somatic experiencing therapy helped me tremendously. I discovered that the constant gnawing feeling in the pit of my stomach that i had always thought was hunger, and had fed literally till I was ill from bingeing, was not hunger, it was stored trauma. The therapy healed the trauma and that feeling left for good, and I never binged again. Completely liberating feeling. It also gave me tools for managing stress. I could go to my “happy place” when I was feeling overwhelmed by circumstances in my life and breathe through it, rather than trying to numb it with food or distractions. How has it gone for you?
