for some of us survivors we tend to deal with things in extremes... lot of that is because we went through an extreme ordeal and that gets channeled to other situations in our lives that we deal with...

for example, when i first came on here i got a lot of helpful information. i was really gung-ho on my recovery and tried to deal with all of my issues at once... yup, failed at that.. i was overwhelmed by everything...

however, that was a great learning experience for me to take things one step at a time, one issue at a time...

thank you for taking the time. It means a lot to me. I am learning here to take things one step at a time as well. With my b/f of course but this has always been an issue for me in many areas. Especially food. Nothing major, just eating out all the time and resenting cooking in general. I know where it comes from but from time to time I buy loads of groceries with every intention of making meals for the week and well... like you said, I fail every time!! Now, I'm doing it 'baby step' -style and it's working better.

I like the way you put it :'things get channeled to other situations'... You wrote in a way that made perfect sense to me.

Thank you again for the answer.
