That Was Not the Plan...

First of all, I haven't had a chance to thank you all for your amazingly positive comments and support after the post I published on Friday, My Story.  I seriously am so touched by all of the comments I received both online and in person.  This is an unavoidable piece of my life, that I will have to live with forever, and live with some of the consequences and side effects for the rest of my life.  I was so scared and uncertain when I first wrote the post out, as many people in my day to day life, and most all of my online community, had no idea this was something I had gone through and continue to battle.  I don't battle it as fiercely as I did when I was in the thick of it, but some of the thoughts and fears are hard to beat and will always be in the back of my head.

I had a grand ole plan to write a follow up to this post from Friday, as I haven't stopped thinking of all of the lessons and consequences and tidbits, but then this happened:

I woke up this morning with a pretty uncomfortable head cold - and when I say woke up this morning, I really mean about 10 times last night due to the stuffy nose, mucus, and achiness.  So I am tired, achy, have dry eyes and a raging headache, and to top it off, I was in a team meeting today, all day tomorrow and then next day....
Yeah, that's what my upset, feel like crap, hunched over self feels like right now :(
So, hopefully I can get this written up tonight, or at some point during the day tomorrow.  There is so much I want to share with you all now that I have finally made the hardest part known.  There is so much I want to share so that if you are experiencing similar things, see a close friend or relative experiencing any of them, or, gosh forbid, catch yourself judging or questioning someone going through an eating disorder - you hopefully can feel more comfortable with it (it is a very hard ordeal to ever feel 100% comfortable with).

So stay healthy, get some rest and don't end up like those beauties of pics above :)

Did you/Have you avoided the dreaded winter cold?

I thought I had, and then last night happened....


  1. ummm you are the hottest persona with a cold I've ever seen! and I don't
    know how you managed it but those tissue pics look sexy!

  2. Ohhhh girl, you need to pick up a bottle (or two!!) of "Source Naturals - Wellness Formula Herbal Defense Complex" I absolutely live by this stuff!! When you feel like crap-o-la you should take 3 pills 3 times a day until you're free and clear then just take 1 a day for maintenance. I promise -- it's amazing!

  3. awww ~ I hope you get well soon!!!
