    I'm on day 3 and all going well until tonight. Well, in some cases it's taught me' a lot. For the first time ever, I burst into complete tears in front of my partner. I was sobbing!

    My friend started calling me' at midnight last night and phone was on silent. She's had a fallout with her boyfriend. I asked her to come at 3pm and she said 4pm. Then she turned up at 530. What proceeded then was a 3 and half hour therapy session where I sat listening to her going on and on. I put out the chocolates and the tea and ate nothing myself.

    Think it's shown me' how much I numb things with food. I never cry and I carry so much emotional baggage as a psychiatrist and as a friend/daughter/sister etc. I feel so drained. Proud I didn't eat though.

    Well done for not eating those chocolates!
    LL exposes a lot of issues associated with food so it will feel raw and emotional at times. It's a good thing though! It's a part of the healing process and step forward in your journey.
    Good luck and well done! You're doing great!
