Comfort food does not comfort me

How do you relax?

I use food to numb my feelings, and opt out of the pain in life.

But that numbing also makes my life more fake and tiring.

One of my friends asked me one time what I do to relax.

I didn’t have an answer.

Although I have more than enough comfort foods, it doesn’t make me comfortable in the true sense.

And my bingeing has prevented me from enjoying things that may have truly made me relax, like hanging out with friends, reading, and doing yoga.

I am practically incapable of sitting still.
