The good news is good news
After posting the heart-on-the-Sleeve blog, dr sent us for the bone scan, but forgot to fax the info to the radiologist, which created twelve hours of more stress plus a lot of time wasted. Our GP (not the specialist) let us know immediately th... Read more
From a binge-eater to an over-eaterer in 6 years flat!
Day before yesterday I had a bit of a melt down. You know what I mean: over worked, over tired, over stressed, and over lonesome. Then I sat down with a good book and a cuppa for some me time, and was interrupted four times, then it was time to... Read more
I am Worried, but is it for the Wrong Reason?
A new stress has been added to my life, and my concern is whether or not I'll be able to keep my predilection to bingeing during stress in check. This, of course, sets of my guilt switch. I am worried about being able to worry and take care of ... Read more
10 Sep 2017 Musings -- Not a Repeat of the 21 February Blog
Beck DID work, but then it didn't. I would still recommend the program. It takes a very disciplined (or compulsive) person to stay with the Beck program, and I do not fit neatly in either category. Beck kept me focused until it didn't.

Thursday: Rolling like a River towards the Weekend
i am in a very good place; I think the plateau has been broken. Being the superstitious type, putting that in writing worries me more than a little. If I were more superstitious, maybe I could spit, or something, and block those evil spirits ... Read more
Wednesday used to be my favorite day -- afterall, it begins with an upsidedown em--what could be better? Generally speaking, Wednesdays tend to be stressful; climbing uphill away from the weekend, then the rapid descent into finishing up before ... Read more

Today is Monday
The weather is very lovely, and staying on track has not been a problem for two days in a row. Tomorrow is expected to be every bit as successful. For some reason mental journalling is always brilliant, but when it comes time to put pen to pap... Read more
So...How was your Day?
Today went very well....It's hard to believe that you can get so low, then three days later it's as if the low never happened. It feels good to be optimistic, again. I stayed on track, both exercise and nutrition -wise, even after going out for... Read more
Comfort: Reflecting on How Last Night Really Went
I have been using food to self-comfort for most of my life. I remember my first binge very clearly, but it wasn't for another 10 years that I made the connection. I didn't think much about, nor did I bother doing anything about ibinges because ... Read more
