Reaction to food bringing things to the surface

 

I had some dairy-free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream last night. It tasted good, and the only immediate effect was a sugar rush. This morning, I noticed some additional effects. Mainly, feeling a bit off in my body, and also a feeling of hopelessness. Several things has come up for me this morning related to hopelessness: regrets about the past, fear about the future, feeling overwhelmed about my current situation). None of it is new. I am familiar with it. And although I feel off now, I also see that it’s good these things are surfacing. They come up so they can return home.

I know it may seem weird that food can bring up emotional states such as hopelessness. But I have seen that over and over in my life. Certain foods do sometimes trigger certain emotional states or bring up deficient selves. It’s a food allergy type reaction. Some of my reactions are probably unique to me, and from talking with others it seems that some may be more common.

Dairy tends to make me feel sluggish, wheat makes me feel a bit weird mentally, and sugar tends to make me spacey and tired.
