    Hyperbole and a Half: Adventures in Depression

    Comment


    • What, Lightening Crashes from the Throwing Copper album by Live? That is like 90s awesomeness. That album came out when I was in university. Now when I listen to that music and feel nostalgic, I'm like. . . oh, now I know why my parents used to listen to the "oldies" station. LOL

        "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

        In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

            My first daughter LOVED this song so much. When she was about a year old there was a commercial that used this song (I used to watch Food network all day while stuck in bed with fatigue and nursing 24/7) and whenever it was on her head would whip around and just look awestruck. We bought it on CD for her and she played it over and over and over.
            Glad one person got it! It's from Disney's "Cinderella".

            And wow, thank you for sharing that! Your voice is so warm and inviting. You really should sing more.
            Thank you! I really love singing. I've done a few recordings before, it's something I'd like to get into again.

            Craving iron: don't you ever get cravings for like wine or anything? I get really specific cravings, it's weird. These days I even get cravings for specific nutrients, like Magnesium! I've gotten really in tune with my body.

              Not all of NZ is rural, but it gets rural right quick. Auckland is a big city of 1mil people or something, but we live in wellington which is 250-300k people (in main part of the city) and I think it's 450-500k if you include the surrounds. There's always something happening in Wellington.

              I really like rolfing/structural integration. it is cool stuff. I think there are only 3 rolfers in the country.

              If you are under 30 (i don't know if you are) you can get a 2 yr work-holiday visa to come here. Then, your next mission is to fall in love with a kiwi to stay.
              Haha, pushing Zoe the NZ pusher You're American originally right? Wouldn't it be nice if people could just swap passports?

                Entry Eight: OOOOOOOH YEAH - I HAD A PIECE OF CAKE AND I DIDN'T BINGE!!!!!


                WHoooooo hoooooo!! I look pregnant but it was worth it! Cake is so good

                Sleep:
                12.30am - 5.50am: 5 hours, 20 mins. Woke up thinking it was way later than it was: thought I was refreshed, but looking back now I think it was a cortisol spike. Here's why...

                Food / Hunger / Cravings:
                Woke up absolutely starving. Was hungry and parched all day.

                6am - Breakfast: 3 fried eggs, 2 bananas, pep tea, 2 coffees, pep tea w/ lf milk+sugar
                11.30am - Coconut water (1 litre)
                12.30pm - Lunch: minced beef with minced lamb's liver in Bolognese sauce, 1 yellow pepper, half a courgette (grated), pep tea w/ lf milk+sugar, orange juice.
                1.30pm - 2 bananas, coffee w/ lf milk+sugar.
                4pm - tea w/ lf milk+sugar.
                6.00pm - Dinner: Prawns, calamari, mussles, two cups basmati rice, two oranges, olive oil, orange juice.
                6.30om - pep tea w/ lf milk+sugar
                9pm - white wine, sticky toffee pudding with peanut butter ice-cream and fudge.... oooh yeah!

                Today I made a massive step in my ED recovery. This is really sad but - I haven't had a piece of cake with friends since I was a teenager! For the last thirteen years, it has been impossible for me to treat myself without binging, so eating has been a mostly secret affair.

                Tonight I had cake with friends, like a normal human being.

                Cravings: Iron, AGAIN! And fruit. And sugar. In the afternoon I was having cravings for evil, EVIL junk food Binge cravings. Didn't give in. And then decided to treat myself, ha!

                Energy and mood:
                I felt good when I got up initially, but after an hour I was absolutely wrecked. I really wanted to go back to bed, but I reminded myself that whenever I do that I sleep for an hour and end up feeling worse. Plus I had shit to do, and places to be early this morning.

                As the day progressed I got more and more tired. Eventually I decided to work from my bedroom! I sat on my bed in my cool, dark room, and I slowly started to feel better. Almost instantly my cravings diminished and I felt calmer, and more motivated. Really strange.

                Then I ate a lot of rice for dinner, and I felt a lot better. Went out with friends, and now feeling good.

                Supps:
                Milk thistle 20 drps x1
                Vit D x 2
                Mg x1
                B complex x 1

                Body:
                Water retention: Peed non-stop today. Was bloated all day and the cake sent me over the edge...
                Sinus - ran when cycled.
                Skin - Hands dry again.
                Rosacea: Got really red in the late avo...for no reason. And a little red with the wine.
                Lips - Fine today.
                Keratosis pilaris: Bumpy.
                Digestion - Had the runs
                Temperature: Waking temp was 36.4C, daytime temp was 36.6C. And yet I needed to pee constantly... maybe my temp needs to be above 36.6 to be hot enough to absorb the water? Or maybe the peeing was from something else. Hormones? Does cortisol make you pee?!

                Interesting that a lot of things went haywire with my body today. Could this correlate with my energy / cravings? Is there a hormonal connection?

                Fitness:
                40 min cycle, one hour stroll.

                Stress:
                Was stressed in the morning, then it eased off and just felt tired.

                Final thoughts:
                In the past I'm pretty sure a day like today would have marked the beginning of a downward spiral of hunger - tiredness - binging - isolation - depression. I'm starting to see how much the binging has contributed to the intensity of my depressed feelings. Sure, I haven't been happy 24-7 since starting this, but my mood has been a lot more stable, and when I have felt depressed it was pretty mild compared to how I usually feel.

                It's a lot easier not to binge these days. This is the miracle, that I've been dreaming of

                I don't want to speak too soon, but it feels like something is changing. Or has it already changed?


                mmmmm.

                  Hey, YB--love your voice. About the visa thing...I think it is pretty hard to get a work visa. The easiest thing (if you want to move the the States) is really to marry an American, but you won't be able to work.

                  Ugh! I'm for open borders.

                  Edited to add: That cake looks REALLY good. Yummmmm!!!!

                    • You're going to become a CAKE MONSTER!



                      Just kidding That's awesome! I've always been in awe of those people who can just have a bite of this, or a taste of that, and then not be consumed by it (My mom does this. It takes her 5 months to get through a chocolate bar). Maybe you're getting to that place. How exciting!

                      Craving iron: don't you ever get cravings for like wine or anything? I get really specific cravings, it's weird. These days I even get cravings for specific nutrients, like Magnesium! I've gotten really in tune with my body.
                      Sometimes I want specific things, but it feels more like, "I'm craving protein" or something like that, not usually specific nutrients. It's really cool you're so in tune with your body.
                      Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

                        Also, pretty sure that can't be done. And that's not cheesecake, also a really small piece. But, yay cake anyway.

                            Most of my ancestors were blonde with blue eyes, I didn't get that trait ;_; Somewhere down the line it recessed far enough that it went poof, and my mom has very dark hair and brown eyes.

                              That's rough, buddy :/

                              I know what you mean about getting the short end of the aesthetically pleasing genes stick. My mom and grandmother have black hair and blue eyes. I wound up with brown hair and green eyes. I blame my sperm donor...

                                Your Black German, kinda like Black Irish. Ouch. JK buddy, no Waffen SS for you though.

                                That sounds horrible! Whats really fun is being able to eat the whole cake and feel that much awesomer about yourself.
