In response to a confession. Same here, OP, I am a lifelong binger as well. My cycle is to eat, mostly sweets, to where I'm super full but still keep eating. And then sometimes I will switch to something salty like chips. Then I feel gross and bloated the next day and tell myself it will never happen again. Then I restrict my calories. Rinse and repeat. I feel your pain.. ((hugs))

I have a problem with binge/emotional overeating, and have had it most of my life, so I absolutely cannot keep snacks in the house. I have no discipline. I'll graze and eat an entire box of snack cakes in an entire day. I can eat an entire bag of lays potato chips in one day. I'll eat until I feel sick, and then continue to eat. The result is that I feel sluggish and miserable and full. Whenever I try to lose weight, the only time I eat snacks is when I'm in the check out line. I'll get a small candy bar or small bag of chips, and that'll be it for a while. I never buy snack foods in bulk anymore.

In response to a confession. I guess it depends on your state, but I'm in the same situation. For me, it depends on how many hours I get, which varies. Some weeks I only have 6-12, others I can have 20-23. The more hours I work, the lower the benefit I receive. Some weeks I get my full benefit amount of over $400, and some weeks I only get like $80.

I'm currently working PT and collecting partial unemployment benefits. In Sept my hours might increase by an extra 5-7 hours/week. I still won't be FT, though. Does anyone know if the increase in hours will impact my benefits?

Some of you on here who work in finance/accounting--tell my idiot DH that you can't just save money in a savings account for retirement. You HAVE to invest it with a decent return. He thinks it's too risky but goddamn, we could have had so much more money now if he had invested about half of what he has in his savings account.

My dad's getting married the weekend after Thanksgiving. Gee, thanks Dad for picking the absolute worst weekend for getting married. It's not like we aren't busy enough that time of year. I'm praying they just have a small ceremony because I don't want to be around a ton of people when we haven't figured out this COVID thing yet. Oh, and almost all the guests are going to be anti-mask wearing and it'll have to be indoors. I'm sort of cranky about the whole thing but maybe they'll just do a small wedding and hold off on the reception until later on.

I'm SO effing sick of almost getting run over by idiot people backing out in parking lots without watching at all before hitting the gas. Seriously, you need to look. You always have to yield when backing up--to cars, to pedestrians, anything. I will stop if I see someone actively backing up, but if I'm right behind a car and it starts moving, they can't possibly be watching like they should be.

While waiting at a stop light, I often checked my phone. This time I didn't notice a cop car pulled right next to me. He give me a warning honk, I looked up startled then got really disapproving head shake. This was a wake up call. It. is. dangerous. AF. I'm going to put my phone in my glove to get it out of sight. That sh*t is addictive.

My family- my brothers, aunts, my dad- they've all recently admitted they're afraid of me and that's why they don't contact me regularly. But they won't tell me why they're afraid. I have never raised my voice, never been rude to any of them. I don't understand. The only thing I can think of is that my mom must be feeding them some bullshit behind my back, making me look like the bad guy when she's actually the psychotic one. The price for cutting people out to save your mental health is HIGH.
