I’ve struggled with chronic depression most of my life. It took a long time for me to accept that I have to stay on my pills if I want to stay well. But if the side effects of your pills are too much to live with, or they don’t appear to be working, talk to your doctor about trying another kind — there are lots of them out there, and sometimes it…
I was anorexic and consider myself, for all intents and purposes, recovered…I eat what I want and very little triggers me anymore…but, like you wrote about, seeing my weight or being told what I weigh can really start me spiraling. I really relate to how difficult that is.
So congratulations on taking this positive, very significant step, and thank you for writing about it! All the best.
As a Canadian watching (largely) the carnage that Trump’s creating, I find that this draft contraception rule makes the religious liberty executive order definitely one the scariest of his executive orders so far (as if it wasn’t scary enough already.) The implications of this rule are terrifying. I wish that there was more that Canadians could do to help.
