SoCS for Saturday February 1st

SoCS for Saturday February 1st

This weeks word is “affirm”.

I have recently confessed that I have an eating disorder (binging) and have affirmed this to my therapist and my family and finally to Overeaters Anonymous.

If I don’t get it under control, my health will continue to decline and weight will triple what it should be. I am already double (rather more than double) what it should be. At this point just losing 20 pounds will be good. Then again so would 10. My clothes just about don’t fit and I don’t want to buy another size up. I am big enough now.


Advocate for mental health and invisible illnesses, also a devout Christian

    What a challenge you are facing Tessa. They say the first step to helping our self with an addiction is the owning it, sharing it as you are doing now. It’s a big step to come out in the open, you are very courageous and determined. Hooray for you, you are further ahead that many of us who hide away our binges and whatnot. Go girl go, you can move forward from here.

      Thank you. It was hard to face and owning up to it. Even harder when your child instead of support screams at you because this in some way is obviously going to cause them grief. We are struggling to get past our bad times with each other but that showed me that we aren’t getting far very fast. She will be there if something serious happens, I can’t fault that, but her attitude is terrible and makes me feel terrible. I wonder if she and I can ever get over what happened and it was on both sides not on just one. I am more than ready to forgive and try to move on, but she is not. Constant topic with therapist for sure.

          Thank you. Both of us are hurting, but she is not ready if ever to forgive and go on. It could be worse. We do talk as long as it isn’t me saying I need to go to the hospital mental or regular.
