I really appreciate that you’ve checked back in with us now that your new situation has stabilized. We like to hear how you’re doing and what’s going on in your life.
It sounds like your circumstances have improved in some ways since you last posted on the forum. Whereas before you were feeling the pressure and strain from your parents, your new environment in a foster home provides you with some hope for the future. Though you’re experiencing drug addiction and an eating disorder, it seems like in some intangible way, things have improved for you, if only slightly.
I get the sense that your weight is still a pressing concern for you and you’re still taking measures to restrict your food intake. This worries me Nie. It seems that even though it feels like your life is improving, your habits have remained the same and your health continues to be compromised.
I can hear how smoking weed has become a new coping mechanism that devolved into dependence fairly quickly. I can imagine that it gives you some relief from the pain that you are going through and provides you with a temporary distraction. Your courage to experiment with street drugs as a way of coping scares me, especially knowing that they can be laced. I am wondering if you have been able to talk to anyone about your addiction? Please know that you can always chat in and talk to us live about this if you would like more support.
Thanks for your updates, we will continue to be here for you.
