I suppose if I've changed at all it's that I'm more self aware and can take steps to mitigate what harm I do to myself.

Risperdal has a paradoxical effect on me with regular use. Short term regular use anyway. It makes me less hungry, not more. So maybe that will help.

And therapy usually helps too. Though right now my obsession seems to be about abandonment and caring, so it seems like I leave therapy feeling more upset than when I came. But I suppose it's at least focusing those fears on someone who can take it.

I keep trying to focus on the fact that no one thing will fix this, but a lot of small things can ease it.

Unfortunately eating is one of those things. Eating really does have a sedative effect on me, and I know I overeat to feel sleepy sometimes. But this feels more like trying to fill an unfillable emptiness.

I wish I liked low calorie foods. :) Yogurt leaves me, even in the best of times, with a need to hold it down in my stomach with something bready.

Thanks, Nadezda.

How are you doing, by the way?
