The only thing that vaguely interests me right now is food...

I am having a stupid day. I feel like sleeping alot and I am supposed to be doing something for my hubby.
But all I want to do is eat and pretty much all I can think about is sugar. I tried to cut back on it drastically from about Jan. 25, 2010 and my best friend said I sounded clearer and less moody.

I had to cut back because of other health concerns but I think I crave it to bring up my mood. Does anyone else feel this way?
I wish I could put my face into a huge chocolate cake, I know that's just another drug of choice.

Oh help, I hate days like this, I become completely paralyzed by my listlessness and become obsessed with food.

Does anyone else use food as a way of medicating the feelings? Just curious. smhair mad

That's me too.  I just ate some crackers with the most ridiculousy sugary peanut butter frosting.  It's so sweet it's not even good.  But I couldn't wait for the brownies to cool off!  rolleyes   I've been like that since I was a little kid.  Recently I read that an "insatiable taste for sweets" is a trait of bipolar kids.  I definitely fit that then - and now!  blush
When I get hypomanic or manic, I barely eat anything and lose weight.  (Thank God)  But I'm definitely in the gaining side now.  sad

Thanks Tortoise11 Wow, that's me too, when I am manic I am practically fasting. Hardly have any appetite at all.

Must be a biological reason for these appetite swings, must go together with the mood.

Plus I have had a sweet tooth since I was a kid and my dad too, he was bipolar like me.

I must be quite down, was in a store today and nearly broke into tears. I hate that when I feel I can't even control it.
Makes me feel helpless.

happy bill

I get that also, that sweet tooth craving attack. But i have alot of apples, sugar free jello and jello pudding and the new mousse by jello. I try an apple first, than jello. If that doesnt work i go for a piece of herselys bar.

That was me about two months ago, and now I am obsessed with losing weight.  I have lost 7 lbs in the last two months and am trying to lose more but I am stuck at this point, and even if I starve myself or perge it will not come off.  So I know what you are feeling about eating so much.  Do you go in and out of these moods or do they last a long time?

the moods last for quite a long time usually. But then again I can cycle in and out of it too. Lately I just feel generally depressed and lousy though. Hope that isn't too confusing, I am a bit foggy headed lately. Sorry.
