I thought I had my emotions pretty well under control. Being someone that used to depend on antidepressants, I have been medication free for years. Unfortunately, I am now discovering, day 4 into my new lifestyle, that my emotions are not under control at all, and that I had in fact been self medicating through food. This is upsetting to me on many levels and now I must figure out how to take control of my emotions again and actually deal with the root of these problems.

I have a good idea what these problems are but how to deal with them and move on is a little harder than saying it. I must research this and do some contemplation.

    Thanks so much for the comments!! I do have a history of depression and mental illness and I thought I had successfully weaned myself off of medications to control them but was using food instead. I really don't want to go back on meds because the main side effect for me is weight gain. I would love to be able to deal with these problems without relying on medication. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!
