Struggling to maintain diet. Im trying to work more on it, but I can go 4-7 days without eating but I am trying very hard to set reminders and make mental notes.

I feel really upset that I didn't eat any pancakes today for pancake day

I know... I know. it's only a day and I suppose I can eat them any time. not sure why it upsets me so much

I was going to eat some pancakes, but then I just had meatballs instead..

and I didn't like the meatballs at all. yuck

I heard this analogy about trauma by this peer support I talked to on the phone.

So, you have a duffel bag and a really nice suitcase with wheels. Your good memories are in the suitcase, easy to move around with lots of useful stuff in there. The bad memories/traumatic experiences are in the duffel bag, zipped up tight, really weighing you down because it's awkward to carry and heavy.

So you have to unzip the duffel bag, take out ONE THING, examine it and change the narrative and how you think about it therefore changing your emotions and behaviors in response to it (very CBT). Then SLOWLY do this with as much as you can in your duffel bag, and eventually it won't weigh you down as much.

For example: I did this recently with the memory of my gf overdosing after I broke up with her. I feel a lot less guilty about that specific event now.

I have never heard that before, and I guess it could work providing you don't have anymore traumas to fill said bag back up again

I don't really get disgusted, but if you do, I suggest flushing the toilet after you pee and before you purge. Especially if you're menstruating with a heavy flow.

"That was NOT the most thoroughly thought out vomit sesh."

and I just don't care. I just don't. it's so difficult
