It's something I've noticed too, Dinah-- that when you're in a certain binging type mood, or state of mind, you can consume huge amounts of food. I've eaten a lot when I'm really anxious, and my mind is spinning-- and I honestly could eat several large containers of yogurt without noticing. Normally, I can only eat a cup or so. It's like the food isn't really food-- it takes on some other quality-- so the volume doesn't have the same effect on your body. I've never quite understood it--

But then I tend to eat large quantities of lower-calorie foods-- in general== sporadically-- and I seem to have a low-intensity mood like that fairly often. But when it gets bad-- it's really disturbing.

I'm glad you're taking the risperdal- I have no qualms about meds, if (and since) I need them. It's the right thing to do--for yourself and those whom you care about. Taking care of yourself is absolutely essential.

Equilibrium can be an elusive thing-- and it's so frustrating when you have a hard time with keeping things stable-- but I emphatically agree that that therapy does help. I'm sure this is a phase-- and, like many things, you'll work through it admirably. You've done that so many times in the past. It's something you have a right to count on in yourself.

In the meantime, though, I'm glad you're doing what you can.
