We also have a tool. I don't use it without him b/c I'm able to take care of business myself in a matter of very short minutes. DH and I are rarely on the same page regarding frequency. I don't feel I need it much, but he disagrees. I know he "takes care of business" in the shower - and I know when b/c he takes a longer shower. I don't care. Eases the pressure on me to give in when I don't really want to.
I think Saoirse is the originator of the thoughtful pause. She's a clever one.
Well played, P!
Journal on depression/anxiety
Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
Oh My Jenn. What kind of a girl do you think I am? Wait. Don't answer that.
I think you're entirely too primal for your own good, in that respect.
"No fate but what we make"- Sarah Connor, Terminator 2
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Primal Battle Tome
Seriously, I spent a lot of years, unfortunately most of my 20"s and 30's, buried in a fat suit and a crap ton of self hatred. Admitting to being a sexual being or even believing it mattered if I was happy was not even on the radar. I didn't know how to save myself. I was raised by food addicts who in the end died of diseases related to inflammation and metabolic derangement. Then I found this WOL. I guess the right conclusion to yesterday's meltdown is that I am far better off even if I never reach the "goal".
I love who I am now (including or especially the sensual part) and will do my best not to let ongoing weight struggles steal that from me. I'm not willing to live half a life anymore.
