1. How are you doing today? haven't managed to do any of my college work but have a night off from working at the bar and have chosen my new cell phone

2.What good thing is in your life this week? SNOW we don't get enough of it over here in the UK

3. What are you struggling with this week? my work ( too much snow around to concentrate on boring things like that ) also writing a food diary for the 2nd part of my assessment next week

4. Tell us about one of your good/strong qualities. I am a good listener. People always talk to me about their problems and I can normally offer good advice. They also know I don't gossip

5. Are you able to accept a compliment? No. People keep saying don't be silly but I just can't, what is there to compliment??

Hope everyone is ok and looking forward to a good weekend. Bod

Hi Bod,

Thanks for joining in and letting us know how you're doing this week.

Snow! I've seen the news showing all the snow you're getting there. Has it eased off a bit or is it hanging around still? Glad you're enjoying it. Made a snow angel yet?

The thing about compliments, when we deny them, we deny that person's right to their perception of us. I had a VERY hard time accepting compliments (and still do at times) but have taught myself to just accept, to hear what the other person is telling me, and to understand that they have a right to think highly of me one way or another.

I hope your week is going well, Bod.

1. How are you doing today? well it's early and i wish i could sleep but i can't. i'm really jittery.

2. What good thing is in your life this week? food and excersize have been stable. i have an interview today for a job. been getting tons of work done, including studying for the GRE's.

3. What are you struggling with this week? i think i'm in the early stages of a manic cycle.

4. Tell us about one of your good/strong qualities. i guess i'm determined to get through this whole mess that we call life.

5. Are you able to accept a compliment? i don't know. i'm still really insecure. i feel like i don't deserve a compliment and i can't look people in the eye when they give me one... or ever, really.

1. Today is Ok, off from work because of the snow. Snow day for the kids. 2. Good things this week would be not so much going on but work, not running around with kids, hopefully a nice quiet week. 3. I am still struggling with eating. I'm depress, so I want to go on the treadmill but know I shouldn't because of my eating. Dam if do, Dam if don't. 4. Knowing when I need help but having a hard time asking for it. 5. I have always had problems accepting a compliment.

1. How are you doing today? Baah or rather mah

2. What good thing is in your life this week? Not sure too early to tell.

3. What are you struggling with this week? Existence, pretty much a daily thing.

4. Tell us about one of your good/strong qualities. Pretty good with fixing broken things. But as my grandpa always said, "The best way t fix something is not to break it."

5. Are you able to accept a compliment? Marginally

I like those nice, quiet weeks too, Kate. They're too few and far between.

I hope you'll keep talking here and, perhaps, reach out to others in your life to help through this depression.

Well, here's a compliment, Oopsla, and it's my opinion and I'm sticking to it....

Thanks for all you do here, for all you bring. For looking in and providing such great support over the years. You have heard and helped a lot of people.

I hope your mah day improves.

1. Not good; struggling to get more than 300 calories into the bod today and keep it there without purging it. 2. My kids! both grown and out of the house, but they stay in touch. My hubby's hugs. 3. Just eating and being terrified of food and this whole process of getting "better." 4. I'm a writer and am good with words. Love to sing. 5. Yes, but I don't always believe it. I keep it quiet that I don't believe them, but when I look in the mirror I wonder why they are saying what they do

Hi Deb,

It's now the next day.... how are you doing?

One thing I had to learn, when it came to compliments, was that another person's perception of me was valid. To deny that compliment, even in my own mind, invalidated them and they have a right to their perception of me. And if you get the same kind of compliment often enough, maybe, just maybe, they're right and I need to relook at my own negative perception of myself. I'm glad you have a loving family, Deb.

Please at least keep yourself hydrated.

Are you getting any kind of help?

I know one good quality about you.... you are a survivor. Keep fighting for yourself, whether you feel you deserve it or not. *gentlehugs*
