I am a recovered compulsive eater currently involved with OAHOP. I love getting to share from the big book on the telephone meetings but wonder if I may be of use in my parish.
As a cradle Catholic I experimented with drugs and alcohol in high school, which definitely made me “feel” better but just wasn’t who I am. Food on the other hand, is cunning, baffling and powerful. It had been my go to obsession all my life and was covert and although noticed to some degree, I was able to ignore it for a softer easier way until my late 50’s. Now 2+years into recovery my faith in Christ is my solution instead of food.
Are there any others out there in San Diego County suffering with food problems? Could it be the unaddressed pink elephant in the middle of the sanctuary? What do you think?
