Hi there,

I am sorry to write such a note on such a special day. My sister is leaving the house for good. For right now until after Thanksgiving she will remain there and I at my parent's.

So, of course my sister called my other sister in California and told her what was going on. She then proceeded to tell me in a sweet honey voice that I should not bother my aging parents and she was willing to be a mediator all the way from California. She said I am hurting my parents. She said I should not discuss any difficulties with them. I am still very depressed. I have decided once again to stop the self harm. I can not allow that to be how I deal with intense emotions. That is a good thing.

I wish you all a nice day and pray it goes well for you. Take care,

The thing I hate is how patronizing my sister in California treats me and speaks to me. In her eyes I am a failure and THE PROBLEM. It hurts. A lot.

SO. Again, I wish you all a nice day.

one thing i am still

one thing i am still struggling with is learning to put myself before other sometimes. a lot of times with eating disorders, you find yourself putting your health and happiness on the back burner. do what you need to do to be happy because ultimately, that is what matters most. im so proud of you for stopping the self harm. maybe now try and transition into self care. when you feel overwhelmed, maybe go and paint your nails or take a hot shower or draw. i have been working to find good distractors to replace the bad ones. i hope all is well. keep up the good work love
