My Vegetarianism

Some people think that the terms, "vegan" and "vegetarian" are interchangeable. They're not. Vegans don't eat/use anything from an animal. For example, they don't drink milk or eat eggs. And if you're knitting a sweater for a vegan friend or family member, be sure to use yarn that isn't wool. Vegetarians, on the other hand,... Continue Reading →

Relationship with Food

This post is prompted by Working on Us, Week 5 on Beckie's Mental Mess. (My answers to week 5 are here.) My relationship with food is unhealthy. What I eat is dictated by my emotions. They decide what I'll eat, how much I eat, when to eat, and why to eat. I eat when I'm... Continue Reading →

I also started going to PHP #4 in April. Having to get up early, get dressed, and leave the... Continue Reading →

Miserable About My Weight Gain

I haven't written about my mother in a while, partly because of my current mental health issues, so my therapist and I temporarily stopped working on Daughter Detox, which is a book that includes exercises on "recovering from an unloving mother and reclaiming your life." (That's the book's subtitle.) I've already mentioned this, but I... Continue Reading →
