checking in to make it through the holidays


Greetings all:
I am just trying to hold myself accountable for today (don't I always). The holidays are the worst for those of us with an ED. Hope to stay strong.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Support in recovery is always important.

SR has a good support system and lifeline
to hold on to and stay connected with when
the urge to drink, use, eat, gamble, and other
addictions pop up.

Continue to learn healthy ways to avoid using
food or other additive behaviors as a way to cope
with things in life that keep us sick in our addiction.

Sending support, care and understanding your way.

Thank you all who responded to my thread. Your support means a lot to me. Really does. I actually did really well yesterday. There was just a TON of food at the meal (went to daughters home). Family and friends ...just a lovely day. I slept OK last night. Today I took a long nap (which will probably mess up my sleep tonight) but I think my body needed that. I ate way more today (leftovers of course) but I did not go out on a binge. I'll see what the scale tells me tomorrow. Sad to say...sometimes my whole mood for day depends on what the damn scale says. Thanks again all.
