So, I read all of the most recent confession thread today and was just absolutely <i>titillated</i> by some of the confessions. (and you <b>know</b> who you are! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Here are mine:<br><br>
1) I made an appt for the saturday after next to get diet pills.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br>
2) I eat like absolute crap. Hardly any fruits or veggies at all. Mostly chocolate. (which is probably why I need the diet pills! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: )<br><br>
3) Geeze, there are so many more,.....you first.

I drink entirely too much Mountain Dew. Like, I am probably keeping pepsico in business with my addiction. I don't drink anything else, and I go through too much to mention.

<i>The Sugar Addict's Total Recovery Program</i> is sitting on my desk, and I have absolutely no reason for not reading it aside from an avoidance of self-control <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

I LOVE red wine... And it's all I can do not to become an alcoholic.<br><br>
I spent way too much money on plants for my yard this week and my dh would be very angry if he knew how much since we are BROKE (as always).<br><br>
I am excited that my MIL is coming to get my dd today to go strawberry picking because I want strawberry pie<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> ... HOWEVER, I secretly hope she doesn't keep her too long because my dd is also my salvation and a HUGE help with entertaining ds on the weekends.<br><br>
I need to wash my hair but I am probably going to just put it into a pony tail and work in the yard instead.<br><br>
I probably won't take a shower for the same reason as above... And, yes, I will be stinky!

I ate *most* of my kid's easter candy. I should read that sugar addiction book but honestly I don't even want it near me or I'd then start feeling bad that I haven't read it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

--I drink Pepsi every day. Several cans. I tried to stop but the addiction ended up getting worse instead.<br><br>
--I don't like plain water so I drink Propel.<br><br>
--I don't eat anywhere NEAR enough fruits and veggies.<br><br>
--I stopped taking my mood stabilizer because it was making me hungry and therefore fatter around my midsection.<br><br>
--I'll probably have my IUD removed because it's increasing my appetite and causing minor weight gain. Of course pregnancy does the same thing...maybe I'll keep it.<br><br>
--I haven't washed my hair in 3 days because I don't want my blue to fade. I look pretty greasy and will probably wash it later today.<br><br>
--I can't operate a sewing machine. DH has shown me several times and I just can't do it.<br><br>
--If DH is home when DD1 (2 years) poops in her diaper, I hide until he changes her. We need to get a diaper sprayer so I wouldn't mind the poopy cloth diapers so much.<br><br>
--I do "homework" on the computer a lot so I don't have to do anything else. Homework is 15% actual homework, 85% screwing around on MDC or other sites.

I eat ice cream DAILY.<br><br>
Instead of strapping DD into our Mei Tai for naps and doing housework, I sit with her on the couch on MDC and let DH do stuff after work. We also have a weekly cleaning service, so he's just doing the daily maintenance.

2 glasses of red wine last night and I have a hangover today.<br><br>
So, I'm sitting here on the couch drinking a Coke and surfing MDC while DH cooks me breakfast.<br><br>
The rest of last night can't be discussed on MDC or it would get the thread shut down. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

1. I've been going on consults to have a boob job done.<br><br>
2. If I cannot get the lift done with minimal scarring I will either have a tummy tuck or laser therapy for cellulite.<br><br>
3. I color my hair and spend $75 bucks a pop to do it every 3-4 months.<br><br>
4. I go tanning. And I've had skin cancer removed from my back.<br><br>
5. I have acrylic nails AND toes.<br><br>
6. I get pedicures every two weeks.<br><br>
7. Despite all my attempts to be "pretty" I spend most days in my bathrobe or sweats and a tye dye shirt.<br><br>
8. I have a lousy temper and there are people I truly hate and would not save if I came upon them and they were dying.<br><br>
9. I still blame myself for my daughter's suicide.<br><br>
10. I blame myself for my 18 year old's struggles even though she is calling her own shots.<br><br>
11. I feel incredible guilt for having 8 kids when I have bipolar. I didn't know till after, but I still passed it to two kids so far.<br><br>
12. I'm alternately ashamed at myself for being superficial about my looks as well as how I so easily take on the guilt and blame for everything bad that happens.<br><br>
13. I love my husband and kids but sometimes I wish I was alone. I think it would hurt less that way.<br><br>

- If we have money left over after our renos are done, I'm going for a consult for a boob job, tummy tuck and possibly some thigh lipo.<br><br>
- If I pick up a chocolate bar for dh for his lunch, I buy two for myself. I've also been known to buy treats that dh likes too, 'cause then I don't have to feel guilty for eating crappy foods by myself.<br><br>
- Quite often dh gets home from work to hear that I spent most of the day on the couch with ds.<br><br>
Dh thinks this means that ds wanted to nurse a lot more than usual.<br><br>
It actually means that I didn't feel like doing anything, so I sat in front of the 'puter all day (except when I was actually on the couch with ds). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
- I hate the after-party cleanup, so I almost always buy paper plates and cups.

<div style="font-style:italic;">I ate 3 or 4 Entennman's Chocolate Fudge Cakes in 5 days. I can't remember exactly how many b/c...well, sugar kills brain cells.</div>

After reading this, I went out and bought a box of Entenmann's Frosted Mini Donuts. I've had 4 thusfar, and it probably won't be long before I eat the whole box.

Oh honey, I've known about my bipolar disorder since I was a teenager and I've had 4 kids (3 living). I'm pretty sure I've passed it on to DS. It's not like being bipolar is all that bad, really. Admit it--you like the manic highs just as much as I do.

I do miss the highs. I'm on lithium so no more for me. I hate the blah's and emptiness at times.<br><br>
What horrifies me is that in passing it on to my two girls, I gave one a death sentence. Her bipolar killed her. I may end up losing my 18 yo dd if I can't get her the help she needs or get her to stay on her meds.<br><br>
