My ability to deal with stress is getting harder and harder. Lately there have been many stressful things going on. I find myself wanting to run away, go shopping or eat. Realistically I can't run away. Our finances are such that I can't go shopping and I don't NEED anything for which I praise God. So what do I do? EAT! I can't get full. I rarely feel satisfied.

I drink water all the time. I eat my fruits and vegetables. That is never enough. This is an area of my life that I have absolutely no control over and I am very concerned.

    It is so hard when, like you, us people who deal with stress by eating, have stress and the overeating creates even more stress!! Is there anywhere you could volunteer to be busy a day or so a week at a school helping teachers or at a library or your church typing. I know the busier I am--even as Jayapers says w/walks, I have less time to stew and eat. I know your mind knows all the answers but DOING THOSE THINGS is always the hardest. We care and understand. We have NO answers but you are worth this struggle for your mental well-being and your health. I'll pray you can just turn it over to Him who cares for us and in His Strength, He will help.

    Wow! I have been there.... I am going to sound like one of those 'peppy, perfect people on those 'it's so simple to do' shows', but... take a walk. I started with just 20 minutes at a time a month ago and now am up to a couple hours. It is my alone, destressing time. It clears my head and I feel so much better! The nice thing is all you need is two feet and just enough motivation to put your shoes on and head out the door, after that its easy.
    Hope you find something that works for you :)
