This sure adds a little spice to my attempts to lose weight - I have been diagnosed with Avoidant Personality Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, both of which were much stronger at a younger age than they are now, luckily for me.
However, possibly an even bigger challenge is dealing with my live-in boyfriend who has Borderline Personality Disorder - do we ever make an interesting couple! I can't even begin to describe the kinds of challenges we both deal with daily, and we'd never be able to survive this way if we weren't both committed to doing our best for ourselves and each other. Still, at the end of the day it's often nearly impossible not to just collapse into a chair and stuff my face with comfort food, preferably something I don't have to cook myself.
Anyone dealing with any similar issues? I think the key to this relationship is that we can relate to each other so very well, so maybe the same idea will apply to weight loss.
