C. Born in '91. Lives in Australia. Occupational therapy student at university. Battling borderline personality disorder, an eating disorder and depression and anxiety. Currently doing DBT & finding it hard to take a non-judgemental stance towards it. Messages and asks are welcome :)
One of our groups therapists for DBT will be going on leave soon, and may also have to do jury duty. This means D, my individual therapist, will be running the group which will make it a lot less tolerable. Having to get through 1.5 hrs of individual therapy a week is enough without an additional 2.5 hrs of group with her running it too.
Yes it’s true that a person can be overweight to an extent and be healthy, just like a person can be underweight to an extent and be healthy. It depends on the person- someone may be naturally healthy at a higher BMI but I’m health at a naturally lower BMI.
Glad it worked for you :)
Even though they mean well, it stresses me out when relatives drop off food for me. They do it because I live alone and cook for myself so they want to help out in case I’m too busy or can’t be bothered to cook just for myself. But I do cook and because I am cooking solely for one I usually end up cooking too much and have five days worth of food to see me through. And then when I get extra food on top of that I feel like I have to eat it because I don’t want to waste food, but then it makes me feel even more full and bloated and feeling awful about my body, and at times triggers the urge to binge and purge. I’d feel rude though if I refused their food. Ugh.
