Eating Disorders

“Eating disorders may be categorized as a psychiatric problem. Although many experts say that obesity is not truly a psychiatric problem, they consider that the state of being obese is also a form of eating disorder. Some people who are trying to lose weight may lead to an equally dangerous ‘phobia ‘ of food. An obsessional journey (anorexia Nervosa and, or, Bulimia) of thinking an individual is fat no matter how dramatic the weight loss, to the point of emaciation, and in some devastating cases, like the famous Karen Carpenter 1970’s celebrity who died (a great talent diagnosed, at a time when such disorders were virtually unknown to the public) of renal failure and a slow agonising death.

You went out the night before and you wake up like a monkey slept in your mouth. Your breath could melt the tyre off a car. Your teeth itch. Your brain is disconnected from your body. You are breaking that brain in, for a complete stranger. You have the agility and dexterity of a 3 toed sloth after being hit by a truck.

You have to sober up in double time, and stop that jackhammer totally pulverising your temples.

How do you get straight? Have a hair of the dog? Huge English with all the trimmings?…If you can keep it down?

Let’s look at the good old all familiar hangover and study ‘cures’ to stop the symptoms of torture, you are experiencing.
