James the Greatest Posted October 29, 2012 Share Posted October 29, 2012 I don't normally do newbie posts when I join forums, but I figured this warrents a greeting unto the crew here. ::waves:: I'm James the Greatest, a 26-year-old female nerd who tends to act like she's more of a 12-year-old boy, lol. being a tomboy is just in my nature. as is poverty, mental disorders, alcoholism, and poor eating habits. these will be the dragons I'll be slaying during my 30-day adventure with food. I'm an alcoholic. not super bad, as in my life suffers due to my drinking. but my body does, and I'm really tired of it. I'm eager to go 30 days without a drink -- though also somewhat nervous. I have bipolar disorder, as well as an eating disorder. food, cooking, and even grocery shopping causes me great anxiety -- even to the point of attacks. I hate the idea of having to take time out of my day to eat, having to put food into my mouth and chew and swallow -- I'd like to just be done with the whole thing. alas, I am human (or some kind of humanoid, at least), so I must eat. when my depression with my bipolar disorder gets bad, so do my eating habits. of course, they are bad when I'm manic too. I'll binge eat when depressed, and I end up accidentally starving myself while manic. (it's impressive how little food or sleep a manic individual needs to thrive, and even less so to merely survive.) ::phew:: I just put it all out there, didn't I. O_o not my normal style. but it's time my diet and body became important to me. therefore, this endeavour is important to me. and I thought that warrented an introductory post.
