i'm sorry i again, haven't been thinking of things to post. I'm struggling personally with my eating disorder and trying to hold on to recovery -- which i'm not doing great at - at the moment.

how are you ladies doing?

I'm sorry is there anything we can do to help? Also, is there any way you can see a dietitian even if it's just at your local YMCA?

I started an anti-anxiety medication that seems to be helping with not being so overwhelmed going into the kitchen but I still avoid it. I also am going to therapy 2x a month so we'll see how that goes. So I guess I'm doing a little better but it'll take time.

thanks hun. My insurance doesn't cover a dietitian And my benefits for a therapist are LOUSY. I've thought about looking up group meetings again, but sometimes those can be more triggering then helpful, and with 2 kiddo's its really hard to get out of the house.... and there are my excuses - always around in the word of ed's.

I did try going back on my meds but they really weren't helping. And it's strange because in the past i would have depression and anxiety that went along in high volume with my ED ... but right now i really dont. Yes, i have some anxiety but but it's not crazy.

look into the ymca see if you can qualify for financial aid. They have dietitians and support staff. The weight management program is not really for our situation but if your honest with them they should be able to help more then dealing with it on your own.

They have childcare too.

So sorry you are struggling right now I am sure there is whole cocktail of emotions with that reality and the last thing you need is to feel badly about this room and not being here much. I really only come down this way when I have some spare time and want to check on how folks are doing. But I never like to hear about someone having a hard time.

I do know what you mean about support groups...I always found them to be more triggering than helpful. Especially if it was the "wrong" group (aka: even just one active member not looking for recovery could throw off the mood). I wish there were more resources.

Hang onto whatever you have. Maybe pull out some of those super-old coping skills and give them a new go-round? I hope it gets easier soon and you can catch a break. I can not imagine how hard it must be to have two kids to take care of and have your mind playing games with you. Exhausting I am sure does not even cover it.
