Aimee, I really do get that part of it. You go unconscious with the urge to binge. I did misinterpret that phrase “once it’s there” and now I see that you mean the desire/craving. It’s not that you’re being unclear – you are very clear. It’s always a problem, though, because this subject matter is so complex. It just is.
So, it will still be helpful to get answers to my two questions above, even though I misunderstood what you’d said when I asked them. Plus, question 3. is there a consistent kind of cue that triggers this kind of binging? Or does it not seem to follow any sort of pattern?
