Gift code giveaway

Today, I took a nice run with Tovah. We didn't go to our usual places, but instead stayed closer to home. We ran past houses, stores, people with grocery bags, kids on bikes, and a nearby small park. Since the weather wasn't the best, there weren't many people at the park. However, there was a kid on a swing set flying as high as he could with his dad behind him. The kid was grinning ear to ear, giggling while wanting his dad to push him higher and higher. It was a lovely scene of a child and parent spending quality time with each other. It's something I wish all kids had. Those are some of the positive moments we remember forever.


In honor of NEDA week and as a way of saying thank you to all my wonderful readers, I decided it would be a good time to do a giveaway! CSN which has over 200 online stores contacted me asking if I wanted to do a gift code giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment about one way you are taking care of yourself. This can be anything related to your eating disorder, mental health, your life, etc. So all you lurkers out there, here is your chance to leave a comment. I will then choose a winner randomly and then get in touch with you with your gift code. Please leave a valid e-mail address or if I can click your screen name and get to your e-mail, that will work too.

The only bad news is that this giveaway is only open to US and Canadian residents. Hopefully, in the future, I can do one worldwide. The deadline is Thursday, February 24th at 11pm EST.

Hi! I just started my own blog about my life/ED recovery, for many reasons because of what you and others are doing here in the web ether. So that's something very healthy I'm doing for myself... writing when I feel at risk of triggering ED behaviors. Thanks so much!

I try to spend time reading fun fiction at least a few minutes a day -- it brings me great joy.

I get at least 8 hours of sleep per day. And I've switched to decaf after dinner! ;)

Yay! Indeed I am new, but I love your blog already!

One thing I am doing to take care of myself is obeying my hunger and eating the food I really feel like having!

i called a specialist i've known for 20 years to schedule time to tell her that i'm really not okay.
i got some affirmations from a friend to put on my bathroom mirrors.
i actually slept 8 hours!
i told someone the truth about the #'s which was very hard and very shameful.
i will not beat myself up because i'm 'old enough to have this sorted out'.

with loving care,

i threw away my scale and haven't looked back.

on saturday, my manicurist scowled at me and said, "you've gained weight." i smiled back and said, "and i feel great too!".

Unfortunately I don't live in the US or Canada but I want to share what I'm doing anyway! I'm taking care of myself by being honest with my treatment team. They asked me today if, when I go back to school, I could be responsible for my snack, I honestly said no - if it was up to me I couldn't do it. As a result they trust me more and a teacher will support me at morning break.
