Grief and overeating.

Has anyone else suffered from overeating since they lost a loved one? I go to the gym, look after my kids and eat, that's all I do. If I'm not busy then I sit and eat, and eat, and eat. I try not to think about anything at all any more and sitting and eating seems to make me feel better. I know it's a bad cycle to get into but it's been about 9 months now and I can't seem to stop. Any ideas.

Re: Grief and overeating.

There is a board for eating disorders and you may be developing one since your loss. I have visited the board and have found some help there as well as here. We all deal with grief in our own ways... could be that you are tying to fill the void with food. Please don't stop posting here as well, though.
The help and comfort I have found is indescribable.
