T: I just need a break from all this
F: Restless
A: Binge eat
R: Gain weight (which makes me feel bad, and I feel like I need a break from that bad feeling)

This has been going on for my whole life. I can’t seem to sit with the restless feeling, it’s so uncomfortable. I have tried and tried and tried, and I’ve tried every other thing known to man in order to get a break in a different way, but it’s like this restless / irritable feeling – I just can’t stand it!! I try to talk to the feeling, I try to feel it, and it’s just so intense. I don’t think the first thought in the spiral is that I need a break.

I just can’t seem to stay with the feeling, it’s too much!!! How can I get some more space around it?
