I didn't overeat or throw up

Two things happened to trigger me tonight. It took me a while to realise that I had been triggered. It usually takes me a long time to understand what's going on with me or how I feel about something.

I started overeating, but I only had a few mouthfuls and I realised what was going on and I stopped eating. And I didn't throw up. And I allowed myself to feel my emotions. And then I spoke about it with a friend.

I still feel angry and upset but I feel like I'm in control.

I cried for a bit, which is actually a good thing for me. I realised that all these feelings come from my childhood and I cried out "I was just a little child!"

I think this is a positive thing and it means I am healing...because as a child I couldn't feel or express my feelings.

I overate and threw up. This is the fourth time in a week, which is bad for me. I will tell my therapist about it tomorrow.
