If you have chronic pain: starve yourself
So like. If there is trauma or immediate pain, a protein is released that suppresses hunger
Could it be that in the early development stages this protein is dominant in high pain environments (abuse or trauma) and then later in life in the absence of this hostile environment there is a under suppression of appetite, leading to overeating??? Or emotional eating??
And like, hunger suppresses chronic pain
Does that make sense?
Like, this gene is over expressed in early developmental hostile environments, and then is desensitized in childhood so that the absence of pain causes an excess of hunger?
Just a curious thought
Connecting emotional eating and trauma with these mechanisms
Because I swear obese people always have some heavy psychological trauma
If you ever watched my 600lb life you know
And as adults they just can’t ever satiate
