Nourishing body and mind – week 17

I am bipolar and a recovering anorexic made fat by both side effects of bipolar medication, and a damaged thyroid caused by Lithium. Living single and alone, its not only a challenge to cook for one, but it’s a daily battle to eat a nutritious, balanced diet. Or even just to eat at all. I transition between starvation, comfort and binge eating. Everything to extreme, and nothing balanced.

This is my weekly journal of some of my meals. An attempt to keep account of my successes and failures with food. I’ve thrown in some recipes and tips and tricks as I journey towards balanced, healthy eating.

  1. Good for you for striving some balance. My wife too has bipolar disorder and is recovering from an eating disorder, so I empathize with how much of a challenge it can be. There are up and downs but as long as you continue to keep trying your best, then no one can ask more of you!

  2. I wish you nothing but the best! Think of yourself first – you are not bipolar – you have bipolar disorder. Do not let it define you as you are so much more than that! It is obvious from this little snippet you share of yourself.
