If someone thinks you are weak for having an eating disorder they are illinformed and small minded.
Select someone to talk to that has empathy, maybe knowledge about what you are going though. Or someone who has gone through things and would be a great ear and shoulder for you.
A problem with EDs is that they warp your perspective. That it will convince yuo no one will listen or that they will be against you. I am glad to hear youre trying.

Hi … say it.
I know its had and saying it “aloud” here I promise will help.
You hve people that will listen and emapathize. It’ll be okay to say it, it will help.

It legal in most of Canada too. BC, and Ontario for sure.
2011-11-02 14:46:01 on Volunteering.
As a volunteer I found helping a cuae that is close to my heart is a great way of healing. My mom had cancer, i help with the runs they do.
It also is a great thing that you are doing and you usually are surrounded with very positive people filled with gratitude.
Also networking is great. Sounds a bit odd.. that isnt e.the exact word I am looking for. But you meet people with like intrests and commonalities.
2011-11-02 14:41:38 on Please read
Griffin. I really dont know the words of support I want to give to you. But I hope that things in yuor life impove significantly.
I am writing that on a note right now.
2011-11-02 14:31:30 on About 6-7 months ago I was diagnosed with a rare condition
My fingers are crossed for you and my heart goes out to you to. I wont say I know how you feel, but I have a very similar worry.
I dont know if I told you before that I had a surgeryon my foot to cut out one bone and split to others to allow me to have better mobility. I was in the hospital for about 4 months. The trade off is that the fear of arthistis is very really. I oftern ache and recieve an upkeep day “surgery” treatment every 4 months. I am rambling, but I just wanted to share that you have someone who has a similar worry.
My left joints, wrist, hip, anckle and the flexors in the top of my foot are being monitored.
I know its a worry, but its not a for sure thing. I think that you being aware is a great thing. You are such a stong person and in what you hae shared about going to all yuor doctor appointments you always seems to find such positivity. And you have so many people here too that look out for you and care about you.
I know ou didn’t ask for advice, and yuor doctor knows better then me. But the simplest advice I was given was to strech… and that what ecer you are steching do it for at least 10 seconds… and calcium w/ Vit D for your bones, and foods that have good oils to keep your joints lubericated.
I truely wish the best for you.
2011-10-31 17:59:16 on I am in the most emotionally draining relationship.
You need to take the first step.
I can only imagine that it is overwhelming and scary. But what if one more day means your kids get hurt. One more yelling match and your kids might get into a cycle of abuse.
You have the power to be a awesome roll model and stand up to a bully. You deserve it, your kids deserve it.
2011-10-31 13:11:57 on Am I really geeky?
If you are happy, but just longing because the lure of facebook posts or crapppy teen movies that show people having fun a place to go at every turn then just forget it and be happy.
If you are unhappy call someone. play a video game. Really 17 is an age between being too old to treat or treat and too young to be an adult.
There is no consiracy of happiness. If you are happy, you are happy.
As someone who is older then 17, looking back just try to be happy. Who cares if the geeking, preppy, jocky… whatever thing it is makes yuo happy. Embrace it and find others who like the same things.
I dunno… I think that you have to talk with her. You could be openning a door to rekindle or not. Either way you will hurt until you talk to her about your feeling. You both deserve to be loved fully and opennly. No have way… It sucks. It is awful and painful where you are right now.
I know its hard, and staying in limbo feels like the only safe option. But my suggestion would be to tell her how you feel.
2011-10-29 13:04:54 on Does it ever get better?
Take that day! Mark it in the calendar. “Dad’s Day” Filled with acivities that you choose. Go to the park with the family, tell jokes, get your family pictures taken. Then call a friend, a coworker, a friend from school and go out with the guys. Go to a reading at a bookstore, wonder the stacks of your favourite bookstore, buy a new pen, download a book… sit qietly amd read. Do the positive things you are craving to do…
Your wife needs to see that you are reaching… searching. It might shake her up, with positive results.
2011-10-29 12:49:49 on Does it ever get better?
It does get better. However my wish for you is that it gets better for you right now.
You need to do something for yourself. Its healthy. What do you like to do? It can be simple… a beer with a friend, goung for a bike ride,…
Just like I am sure you’d wish for your loved ones to find, do and share their passions I hope you find one.
Coupled with this talk to her. Invite her to know all the finances and time budgeting. It sounds like you are starting to head down separate paths. Make sure you tell her, she may not know how you are feeling if you havent told her.
2011-10-29 05:02:45 on Love HELP!
I know you said you dont want to talk about it… but this is a safe place to do so, when you are ready.
It might be good to share. talk it out. It sounds like its weighing heavy on you.
I wish you the best of luck.
2011-10-26 13:15:14 on How the **** does the gov’t expect us to afford an education?
I often hear at education conferences the government wants to teach their kids… and train yours.
Meaning education is for the few, the rich, the connected…
In my opinion FREE HIGH QUALITY PUBLIC EDUCATION (K-12) is the foundation of any great community, or nation.
The rewards that you reep from it is invaluable and the best thing to help the current and next generation.
2011-10-26 13:05:38 on What are your vices?
Ozy… have you ever had frozen grapes?…. My god… that and frozen banana sclices… so good,…
2011-10-26 12:58:16 on What are your vices?
Good…. actually. Lots of changes in my life,… still changing. With lots of help I am finding my smile again.
… other vices?? throwing myself into work, being a wee bit (ha) adamant.
