Over the past 4 months I have been doing so well with regards to handling my Emetophobia, my anxiety and trying to get my eating back on track. I have good days and bad days but overall I've been doing so much better.. The past two days though I have been riddled with anxiety and my eating has suffered because of it. I think it is a combination of lack of sleep and the weather. I'm pretty sure that I suffer with SAD, which is ironic seen as I love this time of year, but the short days, grey skies and rain get to me.

I had a whole happy post planned for today but as I was writing I found myself forcing it. That's not what I want on my blog. If I'm having a bad day then I need to acknowledge it, feel it, accept it and then I can move on. I always end up kicking myself when I have a set back like this. I feel like I'm failing and that I will never get better. That's not helpful though and I know that I have come on in leaps and bounds. I need to acknowledge that too..

1. I am eating better than I have done in years. 
Even if they are tiny portions and not always a full meal. 

2. I leave the house everyday, whereas 6 months ago I was 
on the verge of becoming agoraphobic 

3. I am having less anxiety attacks now. 
Some days I don't have any! 

4. When I do have them I can control them a lot better. 

5. I have gained a stone in weight! 

6. I am a happier person. Which in turn makes me a 
better wife and Mummy.
