    I have an eating disorder but have been to two online meetings in the last two days, and am trying to get a sponsor and get serious about this disease

    I think this is a great question. My demons are internalized and I'm dealing with them by befriending them, finding out what they need and giving it to them.

    I don't really know for sure what happened. Until I was about 32, I used to be an adrenaline junky. I would don the mask, the tights and the cape, and go around catching purse snatchers, vandals, helping old folks, just generally marauding at midnight, then I would jump off very tall things with a chute.

    I was also during that time, the guy who would fight at the drop of a hat. And not just scuffle, actually try to kill.

    Then one day it was gone. The "demon" apparently just got bored and left is all I can think of.

    No. My demons don't require the blood of virgins, only me. They want my attention they want me to care for them.

    I could refer you to a great book I'm reading by Tsultrim Allione called FEEDING YOUR DEMONS, Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict

    I wrote a song about my demons in my band days..it went a little something like this...


    as I descend through this horror ..I remain unhorrified
    as I am seeking out the glory..I remain unglorified
    and these demons in my mind..celebrate in drunken gangs
    in a festival of vice..in this filthy paradise

    into your earthly garden ,,that's the place I want to go
    wont you take me to that place..your fruits of knowledge grow

    symphony of damnation ..the wickedness within
    wont you lead me to temptation..lead me into sin
    take me to the shadows...the depth of your embrace
    and I ravage you and hold you in bonds of silk and lace...
