Hey Jenn, hope you are doing well. You asked, do I find to hard to separate myself from my work self and then my self. I had to think about this for a minute. When I am in school and work mode... I am extremely healthy. I eat well, have a healthy emotional state, positive, and pretty much on top of the world. Then when the day is over, the doors close... I fall into a habit of eating very unhealthy and pretty much being lazy. I never realized this until you asked. Does this make me a closet eater?
I do things out of habit. I was taught to not air your dirty laundry, be the best you can be, impress others. That's exactly what I do. Once I am home in my own element I am completely flawed and self sabotage.
I do believe in myself. I know that I can do this. Just like I know you can too. I'm here if you need a non-judgmental friend. Good luck as you conquer your demons.
