Eating and Divorce

Goeiedag, ek en my man is tans besig om te skei. Hy het my en ons baba wat nou 10 weke is gelos toe baba maar 3 weke oud was vir sy eks meisie. Ek is nog op kraamverlof en gaan eers weer Januarie terug werk toe. My probleem is dat ek skielik nie kan ophou eet nie, ek het hierdie onkeerbare cravings vir soetgoed en vergryp my aan alles, my ma sê  dat dit depressie en stres is dat mens se brein glo iets afskei wat dit veroorsaak. Kan jy dalk raad gee asseblief want dit is buite my beheer en ek is bang as ek my oë  uitvee lyk ek soos ' n beer dan gaan ek eers depressief wees. Ek het baie gewig aangesit met my swangerskap, my baba was 4kg met geboorte. Weeg tans 91kg en het 70kg geweeg. Ek dra nogsteeds my maternity klere want niks pas nie en dit is al amper 3 maande terug wat ek my keiser gehad het.

Best to see a good local shrink for assessment. There could be various explanations for this situation - simply a reaction to the stress of divorce, which would respond to some counselling and CBT ; or perhaps a form of PND ( Post-Natal Depression ) which can include over-eating, and also can respond to CBT ( Cognitive-Behavious Therapy ) and medication.
Don't keep telling yourself that this is out of your control, as, especially with CBT assistance, you can regain control of this, just as you had control of it before now.
