I'm guessing there are at least a few people reading this that have had issues with in the past or still struggle with binge eating. I have never had that issue. I don't think I have ever in my life had what could be considered an actual binge.
So this is why the dream I had last night was so weird. I was in some house that I didn't recognize. There was some celebration going on and there was a large chocolate store bought sheet cake in the room. My friend took a piece and left the room and I was all alone. And that's when I went nuts. I went over to the cake and just started STUFFING my face with cake. I'm talking no fork, 2 hands, grabbing cake and chowing down.
In the dream I remember hoping that neither my friend nor anyone else would come back into the room, because was face was covered with cake and frosting but I just couldn't stop eating.
I woke up with a start and then had a surge of RELIEF flush through me that it was just a dream. I got up to go to the bathroom and while on the toilet I was looking at my fingernails because I half expected them to have cake and frosting packed under them. It was one of those dreams that feel that real.
Any thoughts on what might have caused me to dream this?
