Why am I doing this? It literally makes me sick. is my body missing something? Why does this craving only come on in the middle of the night? Today I'm feeling so guilty and horrible over it. I try and take care of myself and eat healthy. Now I'm doing this?? I don't get it. Any anwers or insight would be appreciated... thank you.
Hey girl, This may be a stupid question, but have you changed any medications lately. Just asking, because I did, and it made me that way, and I had to switch back. Are you stressed out about anything right now? I have a tendency to eat allot more when I get stressed over something. Anyway's take care hon. Big hugs, Ruth
I used to do something very similar, waking from a sound sleep and raiding the kitchen while the coffee dripped. I told this to 2 of my (care-givers) term used reluctantly each just starred at me like a deer caught in the headlights.
Finally I bought sleeping pills in an attempt to sleep through the night to say the least it did help with the mid-night raids and eventually the day-time impulse subsided as well.
I'm now a 165lbs from a stuffed 180lbs from a former depression weight of 225lbs.. Be careful though mindsets and determination vary from person to person I'm a get it done now personality or used to be. I was forced into my own diagnosis and remedy.
By doctors who never once mentioned my weight gain, I loathe each and every one of them.
I hated myself each and everytime I past a mmirror. Until now and I'm still intending to drop back to my playing weight of 140lbs.
Hi taylor tu tu - I just returned from my Psychiatrist cuz I've been doing the same thing... I get home late from work, take my Seroquel (used to be on Trazadone), and before slipping into a comatose sleep (!), I start nibbling... and nibbling until I literally pass out. Dr. told me its comfort food eating, and I'm tending to agree with him. There are only certain foods that appeal to me at that time & they're usually sweets or carbs. I had been working out daily & food was better, but got off track for a few days/week. I'm under heavy duty stress, as well. Some meds. can cause us to crave certain things at night, but also think its a combo of comfort foods and hormones, for me, as well. Its nearly impossible to stop from doing sometimes and I feel terrible about it/myself when I succumb to it... insanity! I am going to try to set a new "rule" about not eating past a certain time, but very tough to do! Good luck. Jillian.
