View Full Version : I'm back!

Been gone for a year, gained 40 lbs... But I'm back on track and starting today. Joined WW this morning. Had to face my scary weight.. but all things considered..

What's happened in the last year:
1. Fall 2004 Very Very Very sick. Lost a job over it. Jan 2005 Started working for my best friend who's a lawyer.
2. March 2005 Got sicker. Ended up in Hospital. Finally diagnosed with an immune deficiency in April, started on IV treatments every 3 weeks.
3. June 2005 - tore meniscus in knee, 6 weeks in post surgical ankle to hip brace (no surgery)
4. July 2005 - 3 days after getting out of knee brace, broke other foot, 6 weeks in cast / walking boot
5. August 2005 Got sicker, no hospital this time, just IV antibiotics for 3 weeks, couldn't get veins anymore so had surgery to put an implanted port in for easier access to my veins. Best thing I ever did.
6. August 2005 Got diagnosed as bipolar, put on Seroquel. Positive: I'm much easier to live with. Negative: Gained 30 lbs.
7. September 2005 FINALLY was diagnosed with PCOS, put on Glucophage.
8. September 2005 Diagnosed with Binge Eating Disorder - started on therapy, increased Prozac.

That pretty much brings me to today. I'm going to do this!! I'm glad to see so many familiar faces. We can all do this together!!

Lots of love,
Beth Anne

Welcoe re-aboard. It sounds like you've been through a lot, but that you've also COME THROUGH a lot. May you find even more strength here.

I went away for a long time too Beth Anne...I'm glad to see you back!

10-04-2005, 10:11 PM
Oh, BTW, do you still have your website? I used to love following along and reading your web page...if not, perhaps you could revive it?

Beth Anne, sounds like quite a year! My sister is bipolar but they can't seem to quite get her meds regulated. I'm glad you've found something to help. The weight gain is frustrating, but you're on the right track! Can't wait to hear more about your journey.

Welcome back! Sounds like you've had quite the time of it. This year will be much better!

Well, Hi there old friend. I think one of the things that I like best about this site is the ability to come back after a long absence, say your hellos and be able to jump right back in with open arms to catch you.

Wow, you have certainly had a time of it. Sounds like you have some pretty important things all worked out. That's awesome. And the motivation to come back here and start again! Glad to have you!!!

I know you can do this, I've seen you in action before.

Welcome back!!
