Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 208 People

    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...

    My Health

    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...

    Destructive Behviour

    I'm not really looking for feedback.  I just need to get this off my chest. My life seems to go up and down depending on outward factors.  Which I know is wrong in so many ways and on so many levels. When I neglect my body I feel emotionally unwell.  Yet, I do...
