Tuesday, August 15, 2017      7 comments

I can't seem to shake this feeling of deep depression. I got some really bad news from 3 separate friends today, all unrelated, but all really serious. I spent most of this morning crying. I really just want to crawl into a ball and... Read more

I started going to online OA meetings 3 weeks ago. I have a sponsor now and have started to do "the work". Obviously, this entails digging into your emotions. OK, I can do that. I've been doing that for decades, in therapy. Thing is... Read more

This morning started out really great. I weighed in at 397 and I have no idea how long it's been since I've seen that. The lowest I've been in at least 6 years, possibly 7 or more. YAY ME! Shortly after, due to some major incom... Read more

When I got married in 2005, it was so hard to find a plus-size wedding dress that had sleeves. I don't love my arms, and wanted them covered. After searching salons and looking online, I ended up buying a dress online through a random br... Read more

I'm so grateful for time moving forward. Things got progressively worse yesterday, including a trip to the emergency vet for one of my cats. He had emergency surgery a little over a week ago, and started acting oddly last night, so off h... Read more

All-time high. Life has been chaos for over 30 days now. My eating reflects that. Yesterday I reached out for help and today it blew up in my face. I asked my therapist to contact my GP to see if there are any resources here ... Read more

It's been a month since I blogged. My husband was sick for over 2 weeks last months from that horrible respiratory thing, and then I caught it. I haven't been that sick in years. I just finished 2 weeks of antibiotics and while the worst is o... Read more

I have an appointment to see my Primary Care physician tomorrow and I'm sitting here dreading it to the point that I'm physically ill. With Fibro and M.E., there is a lot of pain. Normal stuff like getting dressed in street clothes, get... Read more

You know, it's said that you don't get more than you can handle. I call shenanigans on that. Over the past 4 months there have been deaths of friends and old classmates, extreme medical emergencies with family, emotional trauma in relation... Read more

I'm not very good at this lately. In spite of not one but TWO therapists, all of the reading, all of the information, all of the knowledge I possess about nutrition, exercise, metabolism, weight loss, yadda yadda yadda, I cannot seem to g... Read more

Wednesday, November 04, 2015      8 comments

This is so hard. I'm disgusted, frustrated, ashamed, angry. I don't even know what to say anymore that I haven't said a million times already. I would give anything to get rid of this. Every minute I'm awake is about this a... Read more
