Too much – even for an introvert.

Man, yesterday was a hard day for me. I was feeling really nice the day before. I had spent a good, long, relaxing day to myself…. taking myself to a cafe to write, practicing all sorts of self care…. and this was wonderful. But the next day, I found myself with another chunk of free time, so I decided to just do much of the same as the day before. Only this time, it did not feel so good.  When…

Life on a meal plan.

Well let’s get right into it, shall we? As I mentioned in my previous post, I am currently on the long, scary, confusing and often lonely road to recovery.  After struggling with an eating disorder for going on 5 years now (and who knows how many more), and having “recovered” gained a hellalot of weight two years ago through an inpatient hospitalization program, I have found myself back in the life of meal plans and dieticians…
