Hi, I'm Jo, I'm 32 and I live in Bracknell. I have suffered from diagnosed depression since 1999 and probably had it before then based on my memories of school & college. I have also self harmed & suffered from bullimia over the years. I have struggled with my weight forever and am morbidly obese now.
I am in a really low mood today, so please excuse me being so melancholy.:cry:
I have a husband and a wonderful daughter, a loving family and beautiful pets yet I still suffer such low moods and I wonder how they can still love me.
At the moment I am so overwhelmed. I am a contractor and my job is not safe. We are on a debt management plan as we have so much debt. I am trying to lose weight and it is not happening. I don't keep in contact with my friends and I know I've let them down. I worry constantly that I am a bad mum, terrible wife and daughter. I feel like I have nothing to contribute.
Anyway, I needed to get at least some of this out of my head.

Hi Jo,

:welcome:

I am also new to the forum, but when i read your post you sound just like me!!
I am 31 and in the same situation. I also suffered from Bulimia many years ago, so i know what its like trying to control your weight after that!

I am sure you are a wonderful mum, and a great wife :D And i am certain they love you to bits!!

Life can be so stressful these days, especially with people with children.

Chin Up :)
