I have this theory that living with type 1 diabetes can have the potential to lead to an unhealthy relationship with food and poor body image. I have never been "overweight" per say, usually just a couple pounds over a healthy BMI. Despite this, I am in a constant struggle over my weight. I obsess about it. Weighing myself multiple times a week. I was told by a psychologist once that perhaps diabetes is a factor because I have always been at odds with my body in a way, so I do not fully trust it.
I also have a terrible relationship with food. I have very all or nothing, black or white thinking. I either eat super healthy, or binge. If I eat Dairy Queen I say screw it and eat everything in the house, even though I am not truly hungry. Instead of just enjoying the treat.
Does anyone else have these issues?
