I lost 26lbs in a month, and I sleep maybe 3 hours a night. I dont know how to change these things that seem to have become habits....

The soonest my Dr can see me is the 17th, Im thinking Monday I will be sick and have to go in for a visit. I cant wait that much longer.
I started running about 4 months ago, and it has been a godsend. I started small. Running and walking, and slowly built up to the point where my normal morning runs are 3-5 miles. They are 40 or so minutes where my brain is clear and the thoughts stop. At some point you just get into a zone, and your mind will find ways to distract you from the effort, and it seems to pick what it wants you to think about on its own. And after I run, I meditate and stretch, and do deep breathing exercises, and they help as well.
Meds can help - I have something that I can take for when things get really bad (xanax), but there are other things that I think can help just as much, and exercise is at the top of that list.

She wants answers... I'm still trying to figure out what the questions are.
I have got strong enough in the last 3 months to file for divorce. The meds and the support of friends and this site have turned my life around.
My wonderful support system of family and friends who never seem to tire of me needing to talk about this so I can heal.
This website - you guys are in the "trenches" with me and completely understand.
I want to someday be the "helper", not the "helpee".
