I was more screwed up then you could imagine

when I first came here, WOW was a screwed up, I was worried about my dad's addictions, i wasnt sleeping, I was VERY pissed off inside, my confidence was SHOT, GONE, and while I didnt have the common addictions crack, cocaine etc I had/have a few those being caffine, junk food (although I still dont know if I have the right to post in there or not, cause I dont know if it qualifes as a eating disorder.)`

to be quite honest I didnt think ANYONE here would give a damn about my problems as I read some of the stories and began to think "who the hell here cares what I got on my plate when these people are dealing with REAL problems and life and death situations, I am not an addict so why should they care"

to my suprise I was wrong, people here did care (and to this day it still suprises me sometimes)

I want to thank everyone here for the support that I have recived espically cat because even though I didnt speak with her as much as some of you might have ( we did speak a few times but not a whole lot)

I learned ALOT from her story about what addiction can do

RIP cat you gave it EVERYTHING YOU HAD and sober recovery misses you

also may I suggest that there be an anger management forum made

thankyou for reading

that is all.

Thanks for a very touching post, King - it's great to hear feedback from members. You have a right to post wherever you feel comfortable doing so. Eating disorders is for any kind of problem you might have when it comes to food, whether it's overeating, undereating, poor diet, etc. I'm sure you'd be made to feel very welcome in ED if you wish to introduce yourself.

Hugs!

King: I do not know if you went back to the request you

made last evening for information on depression. The

website I found was a good start . It was NIMH with

general information. I wanted to be careful and not just

throw out websites to you as I as found out the hard

way most sites on depression are searching for guinea

pigs (harsh but true) to try a new treatment or meds

regime for people that may be falsely led to believe they

have that particular illnness.

As Margo says;

Any [medical] advice given here by other members, even if they have gone through it before, should not substitute that of a doctor.


My best you:

Love,

Sherry

heartbroken and angry

Hi, I just registered so I could post. I've gotten a lot of help from these forums.

What I'm dealing with is that my oldest daughter sent word through my youngest
daughter that I'm not to call her phone number anymore.

That means that I can't call my grandchildren who I live about 900 miles from. She
is apparently punishing me by using the children because word has it that I dis-
respected her.

Has anyone else had any experiences like that? If so, how did you handle it?
I need support in this. I've been a good mother and grandmother, but there've
been problems ever since my ex and I divorced because of his affair.
