So many triggers....

Monday, February 03, 2014

so much food....
I understand my triggers better and I hope it helps.

Edited on February 5:
Triggers: Dylan Farrow and Philip Seymour Hoffman

Why? Childhood sexual abuse and sticking needles in one's arm..
Not me but the people I care for/was taking care of. Helplessness and rage....

    When my partner told me about Phillip Seymour Hoffman, I snapped, harsh "So? Am I supposed to care?" My own anger surprised me. Of course the anger was really at the people I did know and care about, who just would not or could not stop. It was anger at my own powerlessness, my inability to make my care count. My mother, from her hospital bed as she lay dying at 45, saying "I could stop if I wanted to." But I did learn that anger is not a food trigger for me. I was cooking, and walked out of the kitchen, mad, went and chopped wood.

    Well done on recognising your triggers. Reading your blog made me realise I don't really understand mine, so many thanks for the insight.

    Understanding those triggers will help! It's acting on that understanding that is often the toughest part. I wish you strength!

    learning about triggers and then coming up with action plans to avoid or plan to deal with them will lead to success.

    I sympathize!

I agree with prev posters - keeping those triggers out of the house really helps me. Out of sight, *almost* out of mind! And out of belly!

    First step is recognizing our triggers. I am still identifying them.

    I find it helps if I only have healthy food in the house. If I have treats around I can't resist
them!

    or... So Many Triggers and Not Enough Buttermilk - Natalie may I use this takeoff on your blog title? I am having such a hard time finding a Spark groove this year, but I do enjoy writing. Perhaps a blog will help me to identify my Buttermilk, in this year of the horse. The triggers have subdivided, cloned and are rampantly breeding on the south side of the house with the ladybird beetles.

May I, please?

Sometimes those triggers try to get the best of us and we've just got to mentally talk ourselves out of taking those bites of tempting foods.
