Hey, egbumblebee! Thanks for replying, it means a lot!
I live in Southington but have to travel a bunch for work, school and therapy. It’s preferred that I stick nearby Southington for resources! I just- I never even know where to start with this? I always put it on the back-burner because I don’t want to alarm anyone, least of all myself or my grandmother whose done her best to cope with what I tell her already.
I know for a fact that I eat cereals. Or saltines? Sometimes I put peanut butter on some Ritz. A sandwich (lettuce, tomato, cheese, ham). I used to be able to take the heavier things like pastas, but even now those won’t even go down right.
The days when I don’t eat it’s mainly: a cup of coffee in the morning, A LOT of water the rest of day and probably an insta-shake of some sort. I do know I can stomach smoothies, because I’m not actually “eating” it? I’m just drinking it and that doesn’t seem to trigger any adverse reaction. So if I feel daring I’ll cut some fruit and make one at home during my days off.
I’ll have to check out that website, though.
TurningPointCT.org was developed by young people in Connecticut who are in recovery from mental health and substance use issues. We know what it’s like to feel alone, stressed, worried, sad, and angry. We’ve lived through the ups and downs of self-harm, drugs and alcohol, and the struggle to find help.
