    You dont have to be 80 ( be it mentally or physically) to knit...I'm nowhere near that age and really enjoy knitting.In fact its something I've been able to do since I was about 8 yrs old, mums aunt taught it me.I'm still not fantastic or anything though.
    Trust me, I am 18 going on 80. It's rather amusing! I love knitting though, I think it's such brilliant distraction and really productive. I like knitting hot water bottle covers

    Same. Dad says I'm 17 going on 70. Doesnt help that I'll often go to bed with a hot water bottle because I'm that cold/ my ankles are giving me grief etc.

    Knitting is amazing! It might age me by a couple of decades, and confirms the fact I am mentally 80, but I am not ashamed to admit, I LOVE KNITTING
    :awesome:

    I'm not great either. I only know one stitch and I can't cast on or off and my stitches are rather tight and wobbly but I do enjoy it!

    You can knit hot water bottle covers? You're going to have to teach me! All I've done is a quarter of a scarf and I tried to cast off and it went wrong so now I'm thinking about unravelling it and starting again but I don't know how to cast on and I'm running out of yarn haha!

    Think I might do some now because I'm feeling pretty down after the amount I've consumed today. :rolleyes:

    I'm thinking about ordering a decopatch kit. You get loads of special glossy paper and glue and a brush and you can cut it up and cover anything with it and so I'm thinking about getting a kit and making a pretty pen holder or something.

    Same, although my stitches are fairly even. Til I drop one, then a five minute rant ensues...

    Lets start a knitting club My hot water bottle is not really going well. Its a mix match of stitches with lots of holes!!
    I've had a horrid day. I broke up with my boyfriend, work was killer and I'm feeling such guilt over dinner. I feel disgusting, repulsive, about 20 tonnes and look like i've been living in a bin for the last week. And it's the 1st anniversary of my grandads death this week. Hibernation is such an appealing option right now... If only I could sleep for a night i'd be greatful. *sigh*
    Moan over, how is everyone else? Anything good happen to anyone?

    My crap knitting. I unravelled half of it because I was bored.
    :hugs: Damn girl, you need some blooming sleep! That's a lot to deal with.
    Nothing good has happened to me today, unfortunately. Nothing in comparison to what you're going through, just ED poop. Um, for good things... my sister passed her theory test?

    my eating disorder started in my 2nd year of uni. I've finished now and it's even worse now I've come home. It ruined my uni experience. I was really unhappy and became socially withdrawn from my flatmates and friends. It really affected my studies because I was so obsessed with food and the gym. I really wish it hadn't happened.

    It's my latest knitting achievment! But they're not looking too great at the moment. It's looking rather hole-y at the moment. Maybe i'll be joining you in the unravelling!
    Decopatch is good fun I like all the pretty papers. It's great at christmas to make different decorations

    I'm liking your knitting and the colour is lush. Definatly NOT crap!
    I do need sleep, but it's midnight and i'm still buzzing. My mind is running a thousand miles an hour. I just want some sleeeeepppp. Maybe i'll do some yoga to calm myself.
    Sorry you're going through the ED poop. Not nice. Hope tomorrow is a better day. And I hope you can find at least 1 good thing tomorrow

    I've come to learn that a vast majority of eating disorders that are goal-based stem from a feeling or desire to test one's self, like you're desperate to better you own self in terms of personal goals. Often, like myself, it's purely numerical. Seeing the arbitrary number go down on the scale became the sole drive in my disorder.

    What is yours, my friend?

    I think it was a number of things that started my ED. Being away from home, weight gain in general (something I wasn't used to), disastrous relationship in first year, being lonely, losing confidence which made me even more lonelier and withdrawn, being in a different city, being away from my best friends...University wasn't the best idea for me looking back now. I spent the last 2 years wondering to myself how different and how much better my life would have been if I stayed at home. I know the grass is always greener but I know it wouldn't have started had I stayed at home. I never had problems with food before and now it pretty much rules my life.

    I dont think you should go through it alone again.Is there anyone you trust that you could talk to?
