Dawn's World of Improvement

I have struggled with my weight since my 20's after I discharged from the US Air Force. I have recently been diagnosed with PTSD from sexual trauma, and realized that I am most comfortable overweight because I relate thin with sexual harassment and assault. For years I would exercise and eat well, just to become scared when I lost weight. I know it doesn't make sense, but that is how my brain works.

I have struggled with my weight since my 20's after I discharged from the US Air Force. I have recently been diagnosed with PTSD from sexual trauma, and realized that I am most comfortable overweight because I relate thin with sexual harassment and assault. For years I would exercise and eat well, just to become scared when I lost weight. I know it doesn't make sense, but that is how my brain works. September 2011 I was hospitalized for a TIA and started taking a medicine that caused me to gain about 25 lbs by February 2012, adding too much weight to an already challenged frame. Now I cannot walk because the pain in my back from degenerated discs is so great. I know something needs to give, so I am working on my fears while I work on becoming healthy. I know it will not happen overnight, but hopefully through love and support I can become healthy again.

Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp is anything but dull. They may be flamboyant and exciting. Even those born in this sign that seem quiet and unassuming have a vivid dream and fantasy life… they just prefer their excitement in private. They may be prone to unusual experiences. They are usually very visual. They may experience vivid dreams that make their waking life dull in comparison. This dream world may become their inspiration for creativity in writing, art or other endeavors.

Capricorn-Aquarius needs to find an outlet for their creativity. They have a deep need to communicate what they experience. They need to learn how to let go of negative criticism and lack of understanding by others. When they find someone who understands their creativity, they will be most happy.
Capricorn-Aquarius are responsible and may be reserved in manner. They can be critical or bossy, but they want to keep everything to high standards and succeed. They may have talents that are both creative and scientific. They may be driven to change things for the better.

Capricorn-Aquarius enjoys healthy competition. They like to be social, and love a good intellectual discussion. They can set goals for themselves and keep their nose to the grindstone until they achieve what they want. This ambition gives them a great deal of drive. They can often get away with breaking the rules in order to bring something new to light. They are hard workers and very innovative.
Capricorn-Aquarius must enjoy learning to avoid being thrown out of balance by life's unexpected challenges. If they learn to recognize the benefit even in negative experiences, they will go far. They feel a need for security, but at the same time they relish freedom. They need to find the right balance.
The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination is known to be disciplined, patient, loyal, traditional, ambitious, offbeat, progressive, cautious, practical, friendly, realistic, curious, stable, funny, confident, unique, attractive, competitive and multi-talented. They may also be rebellious, narrow-minded, cold, harsh, depressed, stubborn, secretive, aloof and over-critical.
They are good at business of any kind. They are methodical, exacting and can manage well. Capricorn steadies Aquarius' volatility, while Aquarius lends Capricorn some originality and fun. While Capricorn likes to establish and take stock of things, Aquarius likes to throw them around and see where they fall. They may be great philanthropists, or they may be selfish. They enjoy talking and entertaining.
Individuals born on the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp are proud of their triumphs in social and intellectual circles. They are good at earning a living. They are not so talented at maintaining personal relationships and may suffer difficulties in this area. They can be very perceptive and intuitive if they let themselves develop this talent.
