I don't really know how to start this, so I'll jump right in. I'm new to faa, last night in a conversation with my mother about starting faa, my mother was supportive which was nice, until she started on the same "you just eat because you're depressed" schtick. It might have started that way when I was twelve, but I don't feel that same unhappiness I did when I was younger. I get strong cravings for food when I'm happy, sad or angry. It was frustrating for me to be steamrolled in the conversation, and I guess I'm just wondering if there is anyone out there who can offer ideas on how to handle this situation, because I know we'll have it again. I'm tired of everyone saying I eat because I'm depressed, because I feel like it's so much deeper then that, but no one will listen. Any comments or advice would be most welcome.
