    Scared of where I'm headed

    Hi, I am only eating one meal a day now because I feel sick and can't function without one. The thought of eating scares me. This started about 2 weeks ago and I can see the weight dropping off which encourages me to carry on. Can anyone offer any advise, I can't get out of this mindset. I was...

    Protestors shut down Westminster

    Scores of disabled protesters shutdown Westminster Bridge with chilling banners showing all those 'killed by cuts' - Mirror Online Not the best reporting but I was not aware of this happening. I'm guessing most of the media skipped it. Or put a negative spin on it.

    How often do you eat a day?

Although on Sunday I think I skipped Breakfast/didn't have it, so the first thing I had was a very late lunch? just because I needed food down me because of getting called up for footy later that day. But for now it will be pretty much...

    Here goes nothing

    MToday was a horrible horrible day. You would think I would be used to it by now but everytime I get lower and lower. Last time I'm trusting any man, at least the ones around here. I cannot handle this again. I know there are good men out there but I've never met one aside from my brother...

    I'm not sure if "trigger warnings" are the norm here, but I'm putting one anyway. So, just be aware... So, I'm new. I just made my introduction post... I'm here because well, I'm terrified. I've made so much "progress", but recently I'm starting to get "old thoughts" again... I guess...

    Such a bad person

    I'm such a whiner. The whole very few presents have really made me feel like sh*t. I'm such a bad person and I don't deserve to live. I need to die. I'm so depressed. I don't deserve anyone's help or love. I should do it so people don't have to put up with the hell of me. I'm a bad person. I...

    anyone else weigh more during their period?

    I was horrified that for the first time in months the scale was up today, just 1.4 lbs, but it freaked me out. Then remembered I am probably due to get my period (crampy) any day now, though it skipped last month, and maybe (pleasepleaseplease) it's just water weight or bloat or something...

    I feel sooo good....

    I feel so good, so alive, have only had one hours sleep in the past 26-27 hours but feel so full of life. I had begun to think i would ever feel this way again. Maybe i'm going high, maybe i'm not but something keeps telling me i don't need the meds when i feel so good - was a bad boy last night...
