Today is BF's 44th birthday. We aren't doing anything special. It's been exactly one year since we ate in a restaurant. We're ordering pizza tonight. Pretty happy about how a money issue turned out.

I've royally screwed my back. Initially hurt it ~5 years ago. Occasionally it would flare up for a few days. After trudging through a foot of snow up & down the lane everyday, it caught up & OMG...

...it hurts SO F*CKING BAD! My Nurse Sis had me take 800mg (double the instructed dose) of ibuprofen & it didn't help a single bit. She was shocked & said I have to call the doctor on Monday. She said I need an X-ray/imaging to see what's going on.

Aw! Thanks, Love & Pandas. I saw the doctor & she just told me to take ibuprofen twice a day. Today is the first day it's felt a bit better. My therapist recommended a chiropractor. I've never been to one. Thinking about it.

I hate myself because I can't stop eating. The reduced Clozapine didn't help my appetite decrease or make me feel less tired. I talk to my psychiatrist on Monday. Interested in what he says.

I too am struggling with weight. I realised I gained even more weight since I last weighed myself. I thought that by not weighing myself, I was protecting myself from a trigger for emotional distress but maybe I have just been hiding from the truth?!

K T
23 Dec 2020 · 6+ MONTHS

My joints have been hurting. I can hardly stay standing too long or walking too long without my back hurting. I have never been like this before. It is difficult to get my head around and I can't see myself losing all the weight.

K T
23 Dec 2020 · 6+ MONTHS

So I can relate to how you feel. Stay strong, Manda. Christmas can have so many expectations for being picture perfect happy families etc., when often there is so much unresolved tension, sometimes even trauma,so much temptation to eat so much crap,

K T

missing loved ones who have passed away etc. etc. Take it easy on yourself and start small. It is such a difficult time to start a diet or to try losing weight because we are surrounded with even more temptation than usual! XxX

Tree is up, undecorated (is that a word?) because of course Pog climbs it. Doesn't knock it over though so that's good. He gets lots of water squirts. BF & daughter have a 2 day week of school.
