A week on a locked psych ward
This post has been a long time coming. I realized that I haven't posted in ages but I want to get back to writing. This seemed a good place to start, because a few folks were curious.  Back in the summer of 2014 (a long time ago, now!), I voluntarily commit...

It's the med. I have no doubts. Yesterday I was even hungrier than I was over the weekend. By 11 am I'd consumed a bagel with cream cheese, two lattes, two mini pieces of chocolate, a handful of dates and an Italian wrap sandwich and I felt like I hadn't ea...

Hungry, thrill-seeking girl with a death grip
At least, according to the Wall Street Journal, that's what I am. I spent the weekend sailing, but this isn't your average sailboat race. These 100+ year-old sailboats known as log canoes hang people ten feet above the water on planks to keep them from tipp...

Day 1: No artificial sweeteners/no stevia challenge
Trigger warning: weights and food consumption Yesterday's no aspartame/no splenda/no stevia challenge went very well. I also happened to fall asleep before taking my medication. I paid the price for it; I was suicidal during the morning before I cycled back...

Fat and happy, or skinny and depressed?
It's a choice I'm worried I'm going to have to make. Trigger warning for eating disorder behavior and weight discussion. I've been on 14 medications since I started treatment back in 2011. Each one has had some major problem: two gave me violent tremors, on...

Net worth update: Month 1
This month was my first month of recording my finances. I've been separating myself financially since we split in April and it's taken me a while to get back on my feet. My goal for this month was to build up my emergency fund. This took priority over debt ...

He's back, and so is the budget
The good news... The Chief Engineer came back. I won't go into personal details but the couples I know who separated and came back together are quite a bit stronger than they were before. Yes, it was very painful. But I knuckled up, took better care of myse...
