Be careful Mark with the alcohol please.

ljmeep 31-12-2010 09:22 PM

we still have close to 8 hrs to 2011 (US) lol...

no drinking for me... lol.... but i think i'm hyper enough not to need it... besides i'm a light weight and would be out of it if i did.

itsybitzyspider 31-12-2010 09:25 PM

losing weight... is how do i put this ... biggest issue..

ljmeep 31-12-2010 09:31 PM

yeah... but we're NOT going to lose weight the unhealthy way again... we're going to learn how to eat right and excersize... let's call it getting healthy rather than losing weight.... i think it sounds better :)

Doikers 31-12-2010 09:33 PM

Edited Thanks to Helen :)

MammaMia 31-12-2010 09:51 PM

1. There is a complete BAN on all numbers.
No numbers that refer to eating disordered behaviour or body size/shape will be allowed. This includes BMI, Weight, Calories, as well as numbers such as amount of purges, binges, laxatives taken, or days fasted.

The number aspect is only a small part of what an eating disorder is, and to move the board into a more positive spectrum of the disorder, we want to take the emphasis off numbers, and on to emotion.

Whilst numbers are no longer allowed, word categories are.
For example:
* "my weight is alot less than what is "average" for my height""
* "my BMI is considered underweight"
* "I ate heaps more than what is recommened for a daily requirement for someone my age, sex, and height"
* "I purged several times today"
* "i took alot more laxatives than what it says on the box/container" "


Sorry Mark, thought I should let you know so you can edit it without mods needing to. I know you don't have an ED, but I believe everyone has to follow this guideline and it's within the main rules aswell I believe x

Doikers 31-12-2010 09:55 PM

Thanks Helen:)

ljmeep 31-12-2010 09:57 PM

Thanks for the heads up, Helen... I don't know about anyone else, but I'm still learning all the rules and there are lots to keep up with :)

PsychoKitty2010 31-12-2010 10:11 PM

Sorry about the random disappearance. The hubby and I had to run to town. But we are back now.

-snuggles mark- I'm sorry to hear that you are depressed. But, you are so not worthless. You are awesome. You have helped me so much in the short amount of time that I have known you. I lubbles you. -snuggles and squishes more-

we love you too! <3

PsychoKitty2010 31-12-2010 11:09 PM

-offers Nicole fuzzies to snuggle with-

I wish I could be more help. I just don't know the right words to say. I sorry. I wish I could be more help. My brain just doesn't want to work right. I keep getting extremely distracted, too. And dissociating. Wish I knew how to control it, it would make it easier for me to be able to help and support others.

-pounds head against the wall to try to make it work better-

ljmeep 31-12-2010 11:12 PM

No beating ur head against the wall, kitty. *puts soft pillow between kitty's head ans wall*

nicole94 31-12-2010 11:15 PM

*Hugs Kelly and Kitty*
Kitty-you are an amazing wardmate, there are times when all of us are unable to give adivce, and therefore need to take advice, but the amazing thing about the ward is that everyone understands and supports eachother, and fills in when others are unable to. *Hugs*

ljmeep 31-12-2010 11:20 PM

well said, nicole94!

PsychoKitty2010 31-12-2010 11:24 PM

Meh, I just wish I could help more. Like I can never give good advice. One of my friends once said I would make a good counselor or psychologist but I know that I wouldn't. I don't think I would be good at anything, really.

-offers everyone calorie free snacks and cider-

nicole94 31-12-2010 11:27 PM

Thanks Kelly :)
Kitty- you would be amazing in anything you wanted to be! (execept perhaps a father, cause I don't think thats quite possible :P) And you would be especially good as a counsellor or psychologist, becuase you are careing and understanding *Hugs*

ljmeep 31-12-2010 11:29 PM

OMG! glad I had swallowed my soda b4 I read that, nicole... lol... "except maybe a father" LOL ur funny ;)

nicole94 31-12-2010 11:32 PM

lol, sorry, i was just kinda thinking about all the things she would be amazing at, and then that popped into my head XD

ljmeep 31-12-2010 11:34 PM

no... it's a good thing to laugh... lol. don't be sorry. i kinda needed that b/c my 7 month old has been screaming for like an hr... she just now fell asleep... :P (teething :S )

Cazki 31-12-2010 11:38 PM

Hiya :)

*Hugs Kelly

*Hugs Nicole*

*Hugs Helen*

*Hugs Kitty*

Not long to go until 2011 lol, nearly 20 mins! Special day for me to lol.

ljmeep 31-12-2010 11:40 PM

*hugs ian* welcome wardie...

*yawns* i think the kids are tryin to do me in... lol... so much energy!

PsychoKitty2010 31-12-2010 11:41 PM

o.O -pokes at the idea of her being a father and blinks. and blinks. and blinks again- Nupe...I would love to be a mother but don't think I would make a very good father!

And honestly, I really don't think I could do anything. I dissociate too much. I even dissociate in the middle of a conversation and then when I snap out of it I'm like wtf...nobody notices in real life so I must somehow continue conversations but I can't remember it...its just time lost. And it happens like several times a day. I can't control when it happens at all. It just sucks.

nicole94 31-12-2010 11:43 PM

lol, I was just worried I might cause offence :/ ahwell, it wasn't meant that way, and sorry about your 7 month old, I can sympathise with teething though, my wisdom teeth are coming through . probably not the same but y'know.
*Hugs Ian* How are you? and yep, its very nearly 2011!!!

PsychoKitty2010 31-12-2010 11:43 PM

-hugs ian- 2011 is still 8 hours away for me. It's pretty boring though. I am 100% sober and broke. And don't know anyone in this town. So I am stuck at home, sober, and broke. Blagh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry.

PsychoKitty2010 31-12-2010 11:44 PM

Nah nicole you didn't offend me I thought it was funny. I'm just a few parts short of making a good father. XD

ljmeep 31-12-2010 11:45 PM

don't feel bad, kitty. I used to do that when i was younger... the first time things got really bad for me... I'd cut and not remember it the next day. It was all time lost to me, but non of my family and most of my friends never noticed or knew anything about it. :/

You're not alone in that.

nicole94 31-12-2010 11:48 PM

^^ Yeah I get like that all the time, I hardly ever remember doing stuff like that, it scares me, i've even SI'ed in my sleep before :/

Cazki 31-12-2010 11:50 PM

I'm ok thanks Nicole. How are you? How are you Kelly and Kitty? Ten mins to go!

ljmeep 31-12-2010 11:52 PM

that's scary... i'm glad i'm not the only one who's been in that boat, but I hate that others have had to go through it at the same time... if that makes sense.

ok... if i'm up at midnight... i've decided to ring in the new year right here in the ward... lol (still 6 hrs to go here).

*puts on party hat and b/c she has nothing to drink in real life other than soda... pops the cork on a bottle of sweet red wine (don't like champeign)*

anyone else wanna glass? I'll share ;)

ljmeep 31-12-2010 11:53 PM

i'm good ian... thanks for asking :)

Cazki 31-12-2010 11:54 PM

Thats ok your welcome Kelly :) iv been drinking lol.

nicole94 31-12-2010 11:56 PM

*Hugs Ian* I'm good thanks, my lovley wardies have cheered me up as always :)
*Hugs kelly* 5 mins to go here :) And YUCK, red wine :/ lol, *cracks open the cider* Thats better. Any one else *offers bottles and glasses*

ljmeep 31-12-2010 11:58 PM

well we can cellebrate now and in 5 hrs... lol ;) though i'm sure you'll have crashed by then... :)

*chugs some red wine... ;)* good thing this isn't real ... cuz I'd have been buzzed after two sips :/ lol
