This was me on 10/9/05 at my wedding. Most people told me I was too thin. I don't want to be this thin again, just closer to that than the way I am now. I was about 115lbs here.

A couple years ago. I need updated pics.

Personal Information:
From Herndon, VA. I'm 32. I have a cute/active 5 yr old son. I've been with my husband for 12 yrs, but married for 6+ yrs. I need to get healthy because I need to do it for me. Plus, my mom died 8yrs ago from gallbladder cancer (she didn't smoke.) My dad smoked for 50 yrs and has COPD, he quit 3 yrs ago, but isn't doing well. I just don't want to die at 53, like my mom and suffer with breathing like my dad. It makes me very sad, but I'm going to try everything I can not to go down the same path!

Other Information:
I like to read, sing, play with my son, spend time with my husband and family. Listen to music, go for hikes/walks in nature.

    By the way - I value your friendship and support. It is so meaningful to have others who understand while I am going through this. I am sorry to hear that you also have been struggling with mixed moods a lot. I hope this is improving since you last wrote me. I actually just read about mixed episodes recently and I am aware that I too go through that. I found an awesome book that I have been using a little here and there, it's a Dialectal Behavior Therapy workbook for Bi Polar. This method has also been helpful for depression. I can let you know how I like it as I continue to read/work in it.

    You wrote about how the weather affects you a lot. It is great that you have that awareness! My depression/mania is totally seasonal.... and as I am becoming more aware of that it's helping me to anticipate how my energy or mood level might be that day. If you need support through this please write me any time. I would always be willing to support you or offer advice if needed.

    I read something recently that really stuck in my mind, basically that it's okay to "take a day off" from the mental processing/emotional healing that we are going through. It can be draining on a person and I think it's fine to let oneself just "be" some days, instead of feeling the need to resolve all of ones issues. Easier said than done though, I know. But I hope that kind of resonates with you too.

    Anyway take care honey and please write me any time. :)

    Hi Krissy! Thanks for writing. I apologize for taking so long to write back. I have had a busy week and thankfully I haven't been overly occupied with the computer. :) Sparkpeople helps keep me on track though so I'm trying to check in at least once a day. We have been planting flowers here, and doing some Spring cleaning. I'm feeling more stable as of now. My meds are levelling me out - such a relief! I was swinging back and forth a lot for the past couple of months. I do get seasonal depression. It probably also has a lot to do with quitting smoking and nicotine withdrawal... plus I used to smoke to "pass time" in a way, so now I don't have that distraction and that leaves me more time with my thoughts. I am giving myself so much credit for quitting though, it was possibly the hardest thing I have ever done! I hope you are tackling the habit too and feeling really successful about it! It still feels hard, but it's one day at a time.

    I hope you and your family are doing well! Please write back when you have time. :) Take care love! emoticon
