Feeding your emotions

I have a stomach ache.

I have been eating when I'm not hungry and eating things I know might make me feel unwell (Burger King, anyone?).

Today, while eating some candy, I realized I had this empty feeling in the pit of my stomach.

Not from hunger, but from anxiety. It was like feeding some like anxious beastie in my belly. The candy did "quiet the beast" temporarily but now I'm physically suffering.

Thank goodness for chamomile tea.

I think this is an important moment, however unpleasant. I am going to try and be more cognizant of, when I'm wanting to eat, if I'm feeding physical hunger or emotional hunger.
