I’m participating in a blog challenge this month. I am doing it in art journal style. Each week there is a different theme.I’ve decided that 2 is a good number to go for. I am going to try to get 2 posts up a week for the October Memoir blog challenge. If you are interested in learning more about this challenge- hop on over here.
This week’s theme is secrets. This was a hard theme for me. I thought seriously about changing it. I’ve had a blog many years now. I’ve also been doing collages for many years. When I was in the darkness of abuse healing, I did a great many collages on different secrets and different memories I had.
I’ve moved beyond that now and have no desire to revisit those themes.
While I’m not yet sure how to get my next secret topic into an art collage, here is my first one.
Binge eating is something I am sure some of you are familiar with. For me food was always comfort. Eating made me feel better somehow. Though it also made me feel great shame, which started a terrible cycle. I won’t say I don’t binge eat anymore but I will say that I don’t do it nearly as often and when I do I don’t eat nearly as much.
