Flying Visit

Hello, dear readers (yes, both of you!  Hi Mum, hi Dad!) and how are you?

Firstly, please accept some of these apologies – i’m afraid they’re a bit chocolatey – for my apparent inaction lately.  Yes, i’ve been too self-absorbed and crap to update this blog in, like, a couple of weeks.  Sorry about that, but i’m sure you coped.

Indeed, now i’ve only time for a quick update.  I think i’ll employ our good mate Ms. Bullet Points, then elaborate later, as i have to get my knickers on and fuck off – to a job interview, at long bloody last.

Things that remain the same:

  • When people ask how i am, i still say, “oh, same as ever”
  • Yes, that means i’m still ill – in that way – though the diarrhoea seems to have abated at last (to be replaced by the usual state of semi-constipation and what i like to call “glue poo”)
  • I’m still jobless and even more skint/in debt than ever
  • Still struggling with my dissertation proposal for uni
  • School’s out for summer though – just got to finish the above so i can do my placement and dissertation which, in theory, starts NEXT WEEK.  Oh my god, where does the time go?  Oh, yeah…
  • Public sector workers are still getting the crap end of the stick so i’ve been posting the following on arsebook since midnight: “Remember when firefighters, teachers, nurses, doctors and lollipop ladies crashed the stock market, wiped out banks, took billions in bonuses and paid no tax? No, me neither. Please copy and paste to your status for 24 hours to show your support for the strikes against the government.”
  • Still having trouble shortening that sufficiently for Twitter…

Things that are new:

  • I’ve started going back to O.A.
  • I’ve been and come back from visiting “the ex” – yeah, i’m definitely dumped
  • I got recognised in the street the other day, by someone who (very tactfully) said, “excuse me… were you on a documentary?”  Fame!  Or, er… not.
  • Job ninterview today!  If you think of it, between about 12:30 and 2, please feel free to send luck and success my way (central London).  Am currently trying to figure out how to mask the smell of desperation…
  • London Pride 2011 on Saturday!
I’m sure i’ll elaborate and remember loads more things when i get back later.  Bet you can hardly wait, eh?  Oh go on, be nice and pretend, eh?

  1. Sending positive vibes and all the rest your way….hope they reach you!!


  2. Hope interview went well? Work is the only thing I do well lately. Shame as I will soon be working to pay for a pension I may never enjoy the way I’m going.
    Does OA help? I thought about finding some sessions for Anorexia, but I don’t think I could sit and open up enough to make it work.
    Enjoy London pride. x

    • Well, you do get anorexics and bulimics at O.A., cos it’s all about the compulsion, rather than your size. Yeah, it’s hard to open up and speak at first, but it can only happen by giving it a go and there’s no pressure or hurry to do it. Just going at all is the all-important first step. I think there’s something called ABA – there certainly used to be – specifically for anorexics and bulimics, so if you reckon that’d be better for you, well why not just give it a go as you won’t know till you do, eh?

  3. Hi Mina, i love your blog It’s so honest and relatable. I’m bulimic, alcoholic and a wheelchair user (and a bit of a mess!). I feel like i could have written so many of your posts, the frustration i feel is clearly there, regarding EDs. I’ve had the whole range it seems, weight from 68-196lbs over the last 10 years and feel at my sickest now, despite having a healthy BMI – so i live in the ignorance of the NHS. I have wanted to comment for a while – finally mustered up the courage it seems (or i’ll end up deleting this). Anyway, hope your interview went well. B 🙂

    • Hello Bianca, how are you? Thank you for commenting and for your kind words – i’m glad you did feel able to comment at last! I’m sorry things have been shit for you. Nah, interview went pretty badly! Ah well, onwards… *slump*
