Sep 11, 2012 · Eating Disorder...Bulimia in Digestive Health

Thank you sooo much for sharing this with me. I am not one to hover nor will harp on it also,that would only sabotage any progress she has made thus far. She is definitely not at the point where she feels she would, anytime soon, stop the purging. She is a very bright girl, so I know she is absolutely aware of the possible damage she is inflicting upon herself. She has been in tx, however I realize this is going to be a slow process considering the hard fact that this is a behavior she’s become accustomed to after, I’m told, eight years. However I remain hopeful, and your support has helped me to believe I am not hoping in vain for recovery.

Thank you so very much,
Michelle

Sep 6, 2012 · Smoldering Mylenmona. Have an abnormal protein in my blood in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I am a daughter of a father who had MM many years ago, and was not being treated with the advanced tx’s they have today, and yet he lived many many years with the MM.What he eventually developed was the Amylodosis.What really is surprising to me, as a nurse, it that most of our patients w/MM were males in their 7 th decade of life. Never had a young female as a patient. Good luck to you all! With all the advances you can survive with this type of Ca for many years.

Sep 6, 2012 · Does anyone else out there have seasonal depression? in Depression & Anxiety

I too suffer terribly with SAD. I am a mess in the summer, which is called SAD in reverse Summer Variant. Then come the winter I’m a mess again. Spring is ok and Fall is ok. So where the hell should we move to? I live on the Northern East Coast. I guess I’m just chronically depressed. however, I do feel energized by thunder storms. Go figure??

Sep 6, 2012 · Eating Disorder...Bulimia in Digestive Health

If I didn’t know better I would think this is my daughter Natalie talking. Back in April she went to a day clinic for 8 weeks and is currently seeing someone for therapy. her fear sounds a lot like what you have described. Always thinking she doesn’t look good enough and will be judged. She is very pretty so I have had a hard time trying to understand, as I am sure you too are. WHY do you both feel the need to impress others so badly? Especially physically. I realize the media has done a real number on you, but those people on the covers of today’s magazines are not real. Airbrushing, photo chopping etc…, I’d like to thank you for responding, are you doing better? I hope you, like my daughter, one day look into that mirror and realize just how much you are loved, are beautiful, and recognize that real beauty lies within. Thank you.
