I have tried to evolve over the years in what I do to help me to feel better. It use to be food, booze, other temporary fixes that still do the trick once in awhile. Mostly now, I call on family, hug my daughter, do something nice for someone, let myself cry in a warm tub with a candle, drink a glass of wine, read, reconnect with someone far away, write in a journal. What seems to help is for me to have many choices in my arsenal when I need them. I hope this helps. Never give up, there are always many new ways to feel better and still feel good about you.
Keep the faith. Vanessa:
