My weight

Felt a little depressed so I ate around 30 toffees and now I have a severe headache. It feels as if my brain will jump out of my head. Earlier I used to express my thoughts through poetry and would feel much better but now-a-days, I don't know why, I have stopped that too. Now everything is inside me and I burst anytime with either tears or anger.

Today I cried the whole time I was taking a shower and could not understand what to do and how to end all this. Sick of the feeling I guess or sick of being me.

I hope your headache is better. I am impressed by your sweet tooth.

But seriously, you are completely exhausted by stress. All the creativity just gets squashed by it all. I've recently started to paint. Some days I can't start anything - literally stuck on sofa in a haze of non thinking. I'm in a bubble of depression. But if I can paint, I find the mental activity to paint soothes me, it's like a different part of my brain being used. That helps rebalance me a bit.

Maybe write. But write out your anger and your fears. Paint a picture with words of your sadness. If you get the flow it will do you good.

If you can't write, have you got a garden? Sometimes being out getting hands dirty with ground can be very calming.

What you are going through will change. One way or another, for good or bad and you must try to endure it.

Is there any online support groups that deal with your problem as talking to someone who is going through the exact same thing can be very supportive. It normalises your emotions because until we see it in others we fear we are alone in suffering this way.

Maybe we can have a toffee eating competition one night, if your head can cope with the sugar rush. Though I'm older and have a bigger stomach I worry my teeth will be my handicap!

I'm sending you a big hug, and a promise that you will get through this. Remember you can message me anytime.

Though I may have to pig out on ice cream whilst I think - the additional calories are truly necessary to keep my brain going!!!

I have gained 13 pounds in 2 months... That's nt good... And this is all because of my habit of eating sweet when feeling depressed.

Yes, when younger me and my friends made up this story about tummy bones. You see all women have them and it's vital that they eat cream cakes and chocolate regularly as the tummy bone needs strengthening by these special foods. Many young girls have starved there tummy bones and have these deformed flat stomach with no padding for the tummy bone. All real women know the tummy bone needs lots of protection and padding. Tummy bones can also be broken by exercise so it is vital to the wellbeing of a lady that she eat lots of sweet stuff whilst relaxing. A healthy tummy bone is a beautiful curve and is truly admired by men of good taste.

I like a healthy woman nothing worse than skinny legs etc We used to love a well proportioned lady until about 70 years ago. All the great (western) masterpieces have ladies with a well defined figure not Barbie dolls!

It's an unhealthy obsession with weight!
