ophelia - I remember you. Welcome back.

I am so very sorry to hear about your father. I can't imagine the pain you must have gone through, must still be going through.

And on the feelings when you're trying to conceive and can't - no, you're not alone. My issues fueled my initial desire to lose weight, but now they play a role more in the sense that my weight/weight loss is something I can control, and controlling something feels good and keeps me sane when I can't control anything else.

I know it's a hard step to take, but I'm glad you're back and I hope you'll stick around here. I wish all the best for you.
