Today has been strange. First, could not sleep until 430 a.m., not good since I had a 9 a. dental appointment. I got about 2 hours of sleep. After the dentist I came home and napped another 2 hours. I just feel lousy, kind of a wasted day. I... Read more

Some days I think there is something really wrong with my brain. I always have thought differently than most people. Sometimes people are amused by my brain activity. Most of the time they just do not get it at all. None the less reading Dr.... Read more

Sabotaging thoughts. Almost like Judith Beck and I had a conversation. She pulled a couple of those right off my lips. "It's a special treat!" I'll just have a small piece" "Maybe just a few crumbs" I guess those are my biggies. However, ... Read more

It's all easy when you are home, doing your normal routines. Going to the gym, cleaning and doing stuff around the house or job, but how easily it changes when stuff is thrown off kilter by random events. I love the pyramid, the binge, starts... Read more

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      6 comments

Beck Day 17/18 I am combining these. I am almost OCD about measuring my food for the last 2 months, so to over eat is rare. I did eat a huge salad a couple days ago and felt a bit "tight" bellied afterward. At any rate, tonight I'm going... Read more
