Hurray! This is huge for me…

I made it to the end of a very stressful day during which I faced severe anxiety as I worked in the COVID unit. Made it to bedtime without having alcohol or binge eating to cope, and I still have calories to spare. This is pretty freaking fantastic for me.

    Thank You!!!!! My newborn granddaughter just got out of a few days in the Children’s hospital (non Covid related.). My anxious daughter described it as the third circle of hell. So many sick children, beds in hallways, waiting room.

    I don’t think the rest of us have any concept of what you folks have dealt with. Y’all are saints, imho.

    SIL may now have it, despite all precautions.

    We forget how contagious it is to those of you cooped up there. After the first wave of “healthcare heroes”excitement we went back to taking you for granted. Shame on us.

    Thank you again!!!!!

    Way to go! Stress and exhaustion are often triggers for me wanting food for comfort. Having the right mindset to prepare myself before the urge hits has really helped me.
