I slept horribly last night, largely because I took my medication far too early as I simply couldn’t stand being conscious. I was pacing around the apartment building, losing my mind. I broke down in tears when I got back to my empty and internet-less apartment and decided that I’d had enough.
Since it’s a bank holiday, I’m going to have to go to the coffee shop again to get online. I feel worse than I did yesterday and i wouldn’t go out at all if I didn’t have the insatiable need to get online and at least feel ‘connected’ to something.
I still fee like I’m eating too much. I feel guilty because I ate an apple when I woke up at 3am. Perhaps I should stop putting soy milk in my coffee and just drink it black. Since I had a bowl of bran flakes yesterday, I’m not allowing myself to have a bowl of bran flakes again today. While I feel like I’m losing weight around my belly and can now fit into my size 9 shorts, my arms are still disgustingly ugly. When I go to the coffee shop, I ether drink coffee with skimmed milk or sugarless ice tea (it’s literally just cold tea with ice, not that nasty sugary chemical shit). Now that the scars from my surgery have healed enough, I’ve started doing squats and crunches again.
I have no one to talk to in the treatment apartment that I live in. E triggered me far too much and only seemed to want to talk about the guys she’s fucked. Christine doesn’t talk to me anymore either, even though I’ve tried knocking on her door a few times. Nobody here likes me and some of them flat out hate me. It is getting old…I feel like I’m an outcast among outcasts. I am insanely lonely and the loneliness is driving me insane and is further robbing me of any motivation to try to get better. Even being in the coffee shop is tough, seeing and overhearing normal people have normal conversations.
I’m still not really getting the long-term help I need, which is help in the community. I cannot continue like this, only able to go 2-3 places on my own (and even that is very dependent on timing). I don’t feel safe in my apartment because I’m cut off and alone with my thoughts. I have to get internet and soon. Going out when I’m not well enough is doing harm, not good.
When I weigh myself at the clinic tomorrow, I hope I’m at least below 170lbs or I’m done with food completely.
