I thought my issue would go away..but it hasn't and has become more frequent. I get up in the night and eat...most of the time I don't remember doing so until I find traces of food wrappers...crumbs...etc ...the next morning. This is so embarrassing and I don't know where to get help. I feel so guilty about these episodes and so I eat very small amounts and usually very heathy food during the day, but wow! during the night I eat whatever I want in larger than normal amounts for me..as I get very full quickly with small amounts of food again during the daytime.
i'm going to assume that the underlying problem could be that my mother is very obese (always has been) and that I was and still am very embarrassed by it and...this issue has always been very difficult for me to deal with and I always said that i would never be like her as i feel she could have done something to help herself (still can)...so now I am sleep eating and finding that my issue is also an embarrassment for me.
How can I find help?
