As a doctor, let me tell you what self-love does:
It improves your hearing, your eyesight, lowers your blood pressure, increases pulmonary function, cardiac output, and helps wiring the musculature. So, if we had a rampant epidemic of self-love then our healthcare costs would go down dramatically. So, this isn’t just some little frou-frou new age notion, oh love yourself honey. This is hardcore science.

Possible trigger warning:
I have no control around food when I feel this way and it scares me. When my stomach hurts this bad, eating takes my mind off it. So if I eat bite after bite, I don’t notice the pain as much. But once I start a binge, I become mad at myself and my stomach hurts more and I want to eat more. I have been really frustrated with myself today, so if I eat because my stomach hurts or because I am hungry (both of which are true), I will lose all control.
