Hi, I'm new here, and I appreciate any insights you may have.
I've had anxiety all of my life (I'm a 58 y.o. female). My mom had anxiety, and my dad had depression. I've had disordered eating for at least 25 years. I've noticed that when i am in a serious relationship, my tendencies toward anorexic behavior escalates.
I'm not sure what, specifically, I am anxious about; getting away from routines, being more open to new experiences (food related and other)? compromising, being more spontaneous - letting go of control and predictability?
I'm enjoying this relationship, and would like to continue to explore new experiences, and live a more relaxed life!
I do enjoy Yoga, and walk several times a week. I like the idea of Meditation, but haven't made a practice of it.
Anyway, I'm not seeing a Therapist or any Eating Disorder support right now. I feel I need to be accountable to someone, but can't seem to move forward with that. I'd like to be able to handle this on my own.
Thanks for reading this!
