Fear and Drive


Normally on days I have physical therapy I don’t workout on my own because I’m sore and tired from PT. However, tonight, I was worried about how much food I’ve eaten today and weighing in tomorrow morning, so I got in another workout. I pushed myself really hard, too. Harder than I have in the last week.

Tomorrow I will be on my own for part of the day. Those days are always the hardest. They’re the days I end up binging on food or self-harming or buying things I shouldn’t or planning an overdose or so many other self-destructive things. I try so hard to stay stable on my days alone but I just don’t know how.

  1. Just writing from experience here, but the self-destructive things are coping mechanisms for dealing with something more serious. I used similar mechanisms to deal with childhood trauma and anxiety. I’m in therapy and working through all of this junk. If you haven’t already done so, perhaps a next step would be to speak to someone to help you muddle through your pain and sort out your emotions. Either way, big hugs.

  2. You are definitely not alone and talking about it helps! Someone is always listening. It is very brave to even be able to tell people how you feel. I wish you the best and just know that I want to see you blog again and in good health! Push through! You have made it before which means you can do it again, take it a small step at a time even if you have take it day by day or break it down second by second!
