You're right... And when I think of where I am now even compared to two months ago, the improvement is huge. I'm no longer afraid of regressing back to where I was last year. My crashes are much less frequent. I dont have an ED anymore. Even dealing with anxiety is progress because I didnt feel it before under all the depression. THe list goes on.

Thanks for your support... as always <3
Thanks Nivanthe... that is really good to hear. Did you have difficulty in the past for being judged for who you were?

YG is actually the only guy I've ever been with with whom I can talk about life. There's other parts of myself which I hold back from most people (and completely hold back from the forum) and I need to be able to share with my partner, but I'm afraid (and also have no idea how to bring them up...)
Aw Leida, thank you. Your kind words really touched my heart. I appreciate them.

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."
