a few moments of normalcy lasting a few months to a year brought on by desperation to be thin
Bigger than fat thirties
40s WILL BE DIFFERENT
I was 39 and miserable with my life, my job, my boyfriend, my kids...I was miserable. January of 07 I had left work for carpal tunnel syndrome surgery. While out on disability one day mid January of 07 I suddenly couldn't walk. I couldn't even stand straight up. For three weeks I walked in an "L" shape. It took several weeks to find an MRI big enough to squeeze me in. Three herniated disks later, bursitis and something else I can't pronounce, along with a diagnosis of diabetes, and I had finally had enough pain.
