So the past few weeks have been an absolute roller-coaster of emotions, but I am feeling a little more hopeful and optimistic and felt like writing today.
I think one of the hardest things about going through a difficult time is finding your own way of coping with it … which may or may not be how others would cope with it.
To be honest, I’m debating going back to therapy — though this time it wouldn’t be for my own issues (i.e., cognitive behavioral therapy) but rather situational (to teach me coping mechanisms).
Fortunately, I feel very loved and supported by my husband, family and friends … but it’s been difficult to not have my favorite outlet as a way to deal!
Anyway, in the coming days and weeks I should be able to express more here, but til then just know that even with all this stress and anxiety I’ve been feeling … I’m not turning to unhealthy behaviors but rather am trying to be kind to my body. It needs that from me, at the very least!
Hope everyone is doing well!!

Sounds like you’re dealing as best as you can without your favorite outlet. It’s hard, for sure – I have that person I know who went through rehab and is still in recovery that I wish I could write about, but I can’t. But at the same time, it’s been interesting dealing with it *without* being able to write about it – I’ve learned some things about my thought process along the way.
I hope you’re doing as well as this post appears!
Thank you, Candice … I think the hardest part is this is all my situation and so not being able to share has been difficult but I think in the next two weeks I’ll be able to lay it out there!!
I am doing a lot better, thanks!
Nice autobiographical title. 🙂

Aw I’m rooting for you, girl. Hang in there. I know it’s tough right now. Sending you a few virtual ((hugs))
Thanks! I feel better … should be able to explain more in the coming days
Good Luck! Dont give up and dont lose faith. ED is a monster and hates you with all its passion. But you are stronger, you can survive it. Be brave Lissa be brave!
Thanks Kat–this situation actually has zero to do with disordered eating, food, exercise, recovery … it’s a totally different thing.
I’m so glad to hear you’re feeling optimistic. It’s amazing how thinking positively can change your whole outlook. Thinking of you. ❤
🙂 I owe you an email but I can say this — halfway to OK … will know more Thurs.!
