    Girl... you need to give yourself a big fat break. It's not like you want to be depressed, or you're sitting around moping. You back at your journal! You are one of the most proactive people I know about getting better. Most people who get depressed just pity themselves and feel like victims. You don't do that at all. That makes you a hero in my book

    Now, the depression. In my experience this comes along when emotions gets too much and we begin to repress. So the depression is just your mind's defence mechanism. Unfortunately it's a flawed mechanism, because it's just like putting a raincoat on when you're drowning. Now you can't swim, and you've lost your ability to float.

    Take off the raincoat. What's underneath? (Wow... sorry for sounding like a sleazy sex line )

    I've realised recently that I'm an extremely intense person. It's part of what makes me amazing, but it's also "too much" for most people... and "too much" for myself. I can't cope with the intensity of my feelings sometimes - the bad ones. And then I get depressed.

    But my most recent epiphany is that we need to embrace the intensity of our feelings... and apply them to our lives. Can you imagine what kind of life we would have if we funnelled that energy into living? But the first step is to feel it. I'm actually at this point now - I feel my intensity, and I throw it into living. I dont know if any of this resonates with you.

    But irrespective - don't beat yourself up because you feel bad. Remember how I felt like shit a few weeks ago, and you reminded me about there were ups and downs? And there was - right now I feel great! And it's not like things are going smoothly in my life.

    There will be an up right after this down - catch yourself, and feel yourself float back up.

    "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."

    I thought the same thing, though that she doesn't look emaciated in the later ones nor is she overtraining were good to see. I guess I'm just not used to seeing people that petite because I was shocked by how little she weighed. I did like that it was not just another "I lost 50 pounds in a demotivational amount of time!" post. She lost weight, but she wasn't healthy, and it's good to see a reminder that skinny doesn't equate health.

    [[flashes YB]] I do have a pretty cute trench coat now (thrifted!) <3 Love the raincoat analogy.

    My Vit D dose has been at 5000 IU/day. Maybe I will get a seperate Vit D and Vit K supplement so I can dose higher, easier. I bumped it up to 10,000 IU today, which is what I did all of last winter.

    So day 1 of my period was like a teaser or a warm-up. Day 2 was the real flow & cramping. Today is day 3 and my mood is better so I'm assuming this is partially hormonal. I took my supplement cocktail, plus juice w/ collagen, and now I'm going to get my hair cut. I can pick up some protein powder on my way back.

    Doctor Who today!

    OMG those are so beautifully nerdy, I don't know what to do with myself. I am resisting buying one (I think I like the blue one better because I didn't like 11 that much, but I like the black shirt for the TARDIS).

    I made some vanilla pudding to bring to the viewing with friends (just from a box, not from scratch).

    I got my hairs trimmed and picked up some chocolate whey protein powder. It's enough for the next couple of weeks, if I just have one scoop a day.

    Yeah, I am not a huge Matt Smith fan, but honestly I think he was dragged down by a shitty assistant. He got much better once Soufle Girl showed up. She made his acting better (and is incredibly easy to look at.)

    Haha. Where's Geo? We need to hear her Who take . I like the Ponds, but not as companions. Rory is the shit and didn't get enough moments to shine. I had a hard time liking Amy because she is exactly the kind of person I wouldn't really like being friends with. Clara is okay... I feel like the writers really dumb her down, she has a lot more potential. I'm curious to see what will happen to her with the impending regeneration.

    I liked Rory but thought he should have tossed Amy into a blackhole. Also, the actress has about as many facial expressions as Kristen Stewart (or however you spell her name). River is the best Pond.

    I agree, there was a sense of incompleteness to her story. I don't think it was quite time to claim success. She looked healthier in her fat pics.

    The Doctor Who party was a blast. It got a little weird though. The host drank too much and went into a bad place mentally. She started talking about past or current (wasn't clear) disordered eating (possibly bulimia but definitely restriction). We all took turns keeping her company, helping her through some hyperventilating, getting her to the bathroom & to bed. Eventually, we ended up all snuggling in her room, watching Bob's Burgers until she fell asleep. She didn't want to be alone. I want to reach out to her, let her know that she's not the only person who has battled against herself, even if my battles have been slightly different. I don't know where to start. She definitely needs someone to talk to. We've only really just become friends this year and haven't hung out solo.

    Today: must get Thanksgiving fixings. Hulky decided to make ham instead of turkey. I'm going to make a roasted butternut squash thing.
