HOW I GOT HERE
June 14th began and I was in a really bad place. I went to my boss and
asked for help. If I had been on drugs or alcohol, I would be in rehab so
quick it would make my head spin, but I wasn't doing those things. I was
doing candy bars. One of the girls in my office had fund raiser candy and I
spent $5 a day, gaining so much weight that my stretch clothes wouldn't
stretch anymore and I refused to buy a larger size. I was desperate. My
boss said we'd do whatever it took. He got on the phone with someone and
they suggested a therapist. This person was someone I had some personal
dealings with and did not want to use him. So I got on the phone and called
someone else. His response was that I needed to join OA. What a slap in
the face that was. My experience in the past with OA was a bunch of old fat
ladies bitching about being old and fat. I didn't want that. Been there.
Done that. Still outgrew the t-shirt.
