Hope everyone is doing okay

I'm doing well, using positive affirmations and coping/working against the thoughts that urge me to restrict

I've done progressive muscle relaxation before, it's very helpful. This is a good reminder, I haven't used it in a long time

Haven't been around much, having problems staying current with forum posts.

I'm still here, still mixed, maybe a little manic.

Yesterday, I ran much less though it was because I spent nearly 3 hours in the dentist's chair getting the initial workup for 2 crowns. I have temporary crowns now until the permanent ones come in, which is usually 2-3 weeks. My lower left jaw is killing me especially as one of the teeth had a large hole where a filling fell out too when the tooth broke. Ugh. That visit cost $1300 (including the permanent crowns). I have another appt. to go back to get the setup for the needed crown on top (another $650). That tooth already has a crown, but decay has set in under it, and if the crown is not replaced, it will become a root canal situation. And these costs are with dental insurance (which pays half the cost for major work). You could buy a used car for this price. My first car at 16 years old cost $500, though, obviously, for that price it was not top-of-the-line and did not have AC (which is not great living in this climate).

Ran more today and walked too. Not good. Did have some cake without too much worry (yesterday was H's birthday). Totally sick of this stupid ED.

There are barriers beyond my control making it more difficult for me to lose weight. Dietitian spelled them all out for me. Well, that's frustrating. I can be doing everything right, follow the program to the letter, and it still doesn't work.

Great images bb. I'm doing a lot of combatting negative thoughts. Been doing this a long time but still need it much of the time especially when hard times happen. You are doing so good with what you are doing. I am using the SMART Recovery Workbook for dealing with all addictions including food. I don't think I'll ever perfect it all, it's something to work on when necessary.

It's so nice to see you BBB. I relate to the teeth problems a lot. I give you a lot of credit! I'm still too scared to go because I need a root canal. I just don't think I can sit still for that so long. Cake sounds yummy. I had some cheesecake the other day and man was it good. I was able to control not eating all that I got.

I know how discouraging it can be dealing with all the issues we have. I just do what I can and sometimes it's my best and sometimes it's not.

My initial reaction to what doctors and other health people tell me is to be overwhelmed then I let it sink in. I don't know all your health concerns but I feel you can do it! We all "got this" and just don't know it yet. Like Mickey always says we are all stronger than we think.

I'm trying to tune in to the positive in my life when there is a lot negative. I noticed when I do then I do better. So many things we may not be able to deal with yet or again or at this time. I just am trying to see the best...for what it's worth.
