I feel like I preface all of my posts with this: But I was stabbed in March and I still live where three people were stabbed because I can’t find anywhere else to live that is suitable. So I’m dealing with the continuing effects of trauma in the background.
But as a consequence, I’m soothing with food and bingeing because I don’t know what else to do to manage my anxiety. My weight has never been higher. I’m ashamed to admit it, but I weighed today and I’m at 77kg (170 lbs) and I’m only 155cms (5’1”) tall. I can’t cope with it. So I’m going to be fasting on starting Wednesday and going for as long as I can, but at a minimum I’ll be fasting for 2 weeks because I need to drop 10kg fast because my health is suffering due to my weight.
Usually I’m best at putting all of my focus on one thing: either ED or study. I’m a full time law student. I’m only taking one subject this trimester and I have so much reading to do, plus an essay to submit before Christmas and an exam in February 2019.
So, here’s the question: How do I divide my focus between my ED and weight loss and my law degree and not half arse it?
