Shame

Phil’s sister and her family came over tonight to see us. It was his sister’s birthday and Phil had brought cake round for her. He’d bought two cakes instead of one saying that he wanted to make sure there would be enough to go around. When I cut the first cake and offered it around, Phil refused it saying he didn’t like cake but after everyone had left, I walked into the kitchen and found Phil literally stuffing cake into his mouth and I finally got it. Phil isn’t morbidly obese just because he eats too much, he’s morbidly obese because he has some very major issues that he’s not dealing with and eating certain foods and being overweight makes him feel so much shame to the point that he has to deny himself first and then secretly binge.
