    How Do You Feel Right Now #6

    Relieved. I made it to my first pdoc appointment in months! It was nice to see her actually, she's very nice and easy to talk to. As soon as I saw her, I broke down and she just handed me a tissue and told me to take my time. She gave me 5 weeks worth of samples of a new med for me, Latuda. I'm going back in a month, hopefully in better spirits. We also stopped at Chili's on the way home. I have a chocolate cake sitting in the fridge for later. I know I keep telling myself I'm going to go on a diet, but...next week.
  2. Honestly, I don't know anything about Over-eaters Anonymous except that a friend a few years back was involved with it and seemed to have a positive experience.

    Eating my feelings...

    Exactly. There's a reason why so many poor people in this country are obese. Health food does not come cheap! And you're right it's not as satisfying when you want a snack to cheer yourself up. I wish I had more will power, but I'm out fresh out these days.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #6

    I always feel this impending sense of doom. Even when I try to convince myself there's nothing to worry about at the moment, I don't really believe it. I feel like there's always something to worry about even if I can't remember what it is.
  6. I'm sorry, I don't know enough about binge eating to give a definitive answer. But if you feel out of control with your eating, that seems like a good indicator that there may be a problem. I would suggest you talk to a professional if you can, and do some research if you can't. Over-eaters Anonymous sounds like a good option to look into.

    Eating my feelings...

    This is me! I never, ever thought I'd be overweight. And now I don't think I'll ever be thin again. Food is the only thing that cheers me up when I'm depressed. I can't imagine life without bread and chocolate and ice cream and soda, because it's the first things I reach for when I'm in a terrible mood. If I don't keep them in the house, I'll just spend more money going out to get them when I have a craving. Now that I don't go much of anywhere and have very little money, food is the one thing I spend money on. And now that I feel tired and in pain all the time, the thought of working out to lose all the weight seems impossible. I honestly don't see myself getting back on a healthy track anytime soon, or probably ever.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #6

    A nice relaxing walk sounds so good. I wish it wasn't so damn hot and even worse humid around here right now, or I'd actually consider it. Being stuck in the AC is one of the reasons I hate summer. I was a happier person when I walked more. Now I'm overweight and in pain often and just miserable. Some days I barely leave my bed.

    What's On Your Mind Right Now? (2)

    One of the few things that can genuinely lift my mood is laughing. If I can find something--a Youtube video, a meme, a funny TV show, anything--that can make me laugh out loud, it feels like the sun coming out from behind the clouds. It may not last for more than a few moments but it's something that reminds me that the world isn't awful all the time.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #6

    I can't remember what it's like to spend most of the day in a good mood. I can't remember the last time that happened. It seems like I used to have mostly good days with some bad thrown in, and now it's the other way around. Or maybe I just have more time to think about, stew over it. Maybe that's a contributing factor, but I don't believe it's possible for me to go back to the person I was before. I no longer believe in myself or the world around me.

    What Are You Doing? #10

    Even though I've seen every one of these movies, and have seen each of them probably 500 times, I'm watching the Harry Potter marathon on TV. And reading three different stories at once on my laptop.
