    A Wake Up Call.

    So, I am a 25 year old female, I don't smoke at all or binge drink but I have always struggled with food. I have such a sweet tooth and can never seem to stop when it comes to chocolate, sweets, ice-cream, cake, etc. I sometimes end up eating until I feel sick- it's like I can't...

    Help!

    There's a great sense of belonging I feel when I'm in his arms. A feeling I never felt with any others. I feel home. I'm comfortable and safe. I've been able to tell him everything, even cry in his arms when I got kicked out by my mom. He has always given the best advice...

    Slowly But Surely

    I am building up toward getting back in shape. I have changed my diet- smaller portions of everything, no caffeine or alcohol, very little sugar, fat, and sodium. Just from those small changes, I have lost 6 lbs and regulated my blood pressure. I'm already a strict vegetarian...

    Destructive Behviour

    I Eat Well, At Least...

    I've been sick for a long time. The doctor has only recently begun to figure out what it is that is wrong with me. Part of it is food allergies, and so I'm on an intensive diet (that eliminates dairy, yeast, wheat, sugar, etc etc etc). So I guess you could say I'm eating a...
