So hungry I might hurt myself

I don’t know if food demands are because of physical or emotional needs, but I find I have to have food constantly available or I have a frightening reaction.

Did you ever go without food growing up?

I’m not sure, but I think it was when I was a baby and had no bottle. Later, no snacks. Mother was rigid. As soon as I got big enough, I was eating all the time and put on a lot of weight. Then, I began smoking. My weight is normal now and I don’t smoke but the feelings are still not good. I cannot deal with hunger. My father went hungry as a child. My mother was just mean about it. I don’t know her reasons. Like a guilty thief. She told me she stole candy. Sometimes I wish parents wouldn’t tell their kids everything.
