I'm new to this web site, I've tried various forms of weight loss, including some rather unhealthy habits, throughout the years. Now with the help of this site and a dietitian, I hope to regain health.
I struggle with several chronic conditions which make weight loss more important and unfortunately also more difficult. In addition to the depression that comes with Bipolar Disorder which leads to lack of motivation, I also have a rare genetic condition that affects the connective tissue in my body, leading to very painful joints among other symptoms. The less weight I have to put on those joints means the healthier they are and less pain I will experience, so I hope my weight loss will help decrease my pain.
I am 24 years old, and had to move back in with my parents (ugh!) after leaving college due to major health problems.
In addition to my other health problems, I am also diagnosed as Autistic/Asberger's and apologize in advanced as I know that at times my way of communication can be somewhat abrupt and occasionally confusing.
