Day 8 on Vyvanse

Standard

I am still loving this medication, I havent thought about bingeing once, usually its at least a few times a day, im very impressed with it, the only side effect ive had is waking up alittle early but thats ok as im enjoying living right now. I have a calm mind but sometimes I do need to sit, close my eyes a rest for a few minutes, but thats just because ive overdone things and need a break

I dont ever remember feeling this way, I know I will still have ups and downs, im just enjoying the calmness right now

Very Excited and Hopeful

I went to see my doctor about this article I read the other day he said I could try it. I had to order it and will start using it the day after tomorrow, quite expensive $140 for 30 tabs but after 20+ years of bingeing and depression if it works or helps then it will be worth it

Hope one of those links work, sorry about that

I read this today, has anyone tried this with an eating disorder? and bipolar? im  not sure if to even speak to my doctor about it since there is a warning about people with mental illness.

It Feels Great To Accomplish ….

It Feels Great To Accomplish ….

Something that you set out to do, I rarely have this feeling as I start so many things and never finish them or take years to do so. While my eating problems have been both good and bad, iveĀ  finished a few things that I started long ago. When I was young we instead of having photos we had slides, ive been meaning to scan them onto my PC for three years, it took me two hours to get it done (what was stopping me from doing it years ago?)

Ive been saying I was going to get my learners permit for many years, but I blamed not being able to study for not doing it. I started studying five days ago, I went for the test today and aced it. These things that I failed at beforehand kept going through my mind and I kept telling myself that I never follow through with anything so why bother trying

Now im looking forward to learning to drive and now that im able to walk again I want to get my health in order, my binges are few and far between but exercise helps in keeping me sane,I never realised how much it helped until I wasnt allowed to walk for two months

I have a hangover from my last binge, but im looking forward to the challenge and see if my brain is going to work with me this time with my health .. ive decided to try harder this time

Happy New Year, looking forward to see what I can accomplish in 2015

Christmas Is Over Again

This is how I felt by Xmas Day, I am so thankful it is over again, I have failed xmas for over 20 years and this year was no different. I tried starting my recovery to close to xmas, so there was no way that it was going to work, but im proud to say that by Boxing Day I started eating properly instead of continuing to binge. Two days in and im feeling good

Yesterday I had the worst hangover and today was the first day that I could exercise in the past two months, my knee is still sore but im allowed to slowly start exercising again

My little dog can now be back in my room, I was too scared to have her around  after a binge, my mind is calm and ready to become healthy

Its Time

I binged yesterday, when I binge I drink alot of Coca Cola and it doesnt go well with my bipolar meds. Its happened a few times after bingeing but it took me alittle while to put two and two together, I jump up in my sleep, I did it twice last night, one time I nearly knocked myself out by hitting my head and the second time I either scared my little chihuahua or actually hit her, she screamed and that broke my heart
