Don't you feel taller now? pegasus

Taller, more beautiful, whatever it is? Don't you feel -- just more?

That's how I felt, hard as my interview about depression and trauma was, after getting through it. I felt taller, more capable, stronger.

Congratulations. And I agree about the therapy. Although, you know? I can't think of a single reason, internal or external, that it's better being at a "normal" weight, other than not being quite so hungry all the time. And even that, well, the hunger felt good, in its own way. I think maybe some of those feelings stick around, we just work around them. Maybe.

Or maybe you just like knowing, somewhere inside, that if things get really rough, and your newer coping mechanisms stop working, you still have an alternative?

I'm glad you did it. And I'm glad you came through it so well.
