  1. Over Christmas, my mother told me that she thinks I have diabetes. Mind you, I'm overweight, but I don't think it's severe and I'm not obese. But I'm still the biggest person in my family. And my mom tells me all the time how much I need to lose weight. Makes me wonder if she would love me more if I were thinner.

      Oh gosh. That's awful. I'm sorry your mom has said such things to you, Poppy. That is really unkind of her. I can only hope that she loves you no matter your size, and wouldn't only love you if you were thinner. I'm sorry again.

      That's horrible! And thin people can get diabetes too, so she's a bit dim. Sorry she said that to you.

      Weight and diabetes are not always related. She should not make such remarks like that. I have been getting rude comments from family members for my weight too over the years, starting when I was a child. I think neither you or me should be put through this. And at Christmas, the time of the year we should rejoice and have a good feast... 

      If your mother would love you more is you lost weight, SHE has a serious problem not you! This is not okay. Also, thinner does not always mean healthier. Sitting if ok?

  2. Can someone PM me to talk? I need some advice and I don't have anyone I can talk to.

  3. Thank you so so much. You have no idea what this comment means to me
  4. I wrote a letter to my mother and I want to share it here. I don't think I'll ever send this to her, but my T suggested that I write it to express how I'm feeling about everything that's been going on lately. So, I decided to post it. Maybe it will encourage someone to write their own. To My Mother, I’m writing to you because I just really don’t understand some things. I have questions and I need answers. I don’t know if you will be able to provide me with any answers because honestly, I don’t know if even you have any. Some things just don’t make sense

    No Title

    This has got to be the hundredth time I’ve started this blog. I just don’t know what to say. I want to write, but I don’t know what to say. It feels like nothing is happening while at the same time, everything is happening. I’m in distress. I’m crying a lot – and I mean a LOT. I’m angry. I’m hurt. But I don’t know how to put any of this on paper and get it out of my head. Everything is wrong. Everything feels so insignificant. I can’t even write because it doesn’t feel safe. Therapy doesn’t feel safe. Nothing feels right. I feel like I’m living in absolute chaos and no one can help m

      Session went pretty well. The only thing is that it doesn't look like I'm able to get the help I need until I'm ready to change and I'm not sure I'm ready yet. But I'm hoping my T isn't giving up on me yet. 

    4. Free2Fly


      Safe hugs :hug: If ok?

      I'm sorry you can get the help you need, hopefully your t will continue to help.
