Angela and Kristin!! Thank you SO MUCH for the welcome! I've been feeling very alone in this struggle so you don't know what your simple words did for me! Thank you again and I'll be talking to you soon!
Reading your yearly accounts reminds me so much of myself. I lost my job due to being hurt in 2008 and went to binge drinking and was already depressed, so I basically drank and slept for 3 years and woke up 287 pounds!!! CRAZY how fast it happens, doesn't it.
Stay on the meds. There is no shame in it and it's a chemical imbalance and one day your chemistry might catch up to your medication-imbued good mood and you really won't need them anymore. Just keep trying. It' all we can do.
So if I call you "Little Angela", it's a happy thing, not bad! LOL! And I think you are smart and BRAVE to recap your years like that. It's a positive thing that you recognize what was going on with yourself. Be proud, and be SASSY!!
and ! I wanted to say welcome to the Living with RAD Team and that I am happy you are here on this journey with the rest of us and no longer going it alone.
