    I Dwell On Them

    I cannot help it, I constantly dwell on the things that really scare me. Like house fires, or losing my job, or losing my husband, or not being able to have kids. I spend far too much time in my head.

    Mostly Stupid Things

    Food and Gaining Weight Scare ...

    Food and gaining weight scare me 100% of the time.  I don't see too many Anorexics on here, which I guess is a good thing.  Just the thought of eating something fattening or sugary makes me want to run the other way.  I see a dietitian, and she tells me constantly...

    I Have Come to Realize

       That scaring myself with what ifs & senarios that will most likely never come to be is so stupid. Unfortunately, I have not quite learned how not to do it. Mahahahahah!!!! Maybe someday, but for now, I hold myself & try to think of happy things. It doesn't...
