Compulsively

Throughout this 30 day (minus 2) writing challenge I dreaded this topic. What a time to get writer's block! Today's subject is compulsively. If I don't come up with a good story I will have to reveal an embarrassing truth about my compulsive behaviour. I racked my brain trying to come up with a good story. 

All I have is the truth. I eat compulsively.

It has absolute control over me. I eat as much as three or four times in a day. I sometimes even snack between meals. The compulsion is so strong, I sometimes wake up in the morning hungry. Nothing will satisfy me until I eat something.
Not only that, not two or three hours later, I eat again. In between I sometimes have a beverage.
I know, it is embarrassing. I felt I needed to talk about it. I feel better. I am hungry though. I think I will go make a sandwich for lunch.

Today is day 22 of the thirty day writing challenge (February edition) as arranged and hosted by Nicky and Mike over at WeWorkForCheese.com. Go check out their site to see what they wrote and see all the other participants.

  6. I've been working hard at it and I'm down to only 3 meals, 3 snacks and 4 beverages a day. It's grueling work!
