That is the way someone explained having experienced a trauma at a very young age felt, as if she had a hole in her soul.
When she said it, it made me want to cry because it described how I have felt my entire life. As if something important was missing, as if I left something behind that I shouldn't have. As if I had a hole in my soul.
She explained that she spent her life trying to fill that hole with food... maybe that is what I have been trying to do... fill this void that never goes away.
Step 1..Admit you are powerless over food....I am powerless.
