In Sex Love and Obesity Part 10, I introduced you to Peter, a man who was about to change my entire world. He was about to teach me one of the biggest lessons I have learned when it comes to relationships after weight loss. Attention seeking can lead you down a dark rabbit hole. October turned into November. Remember, I told you that November tends to be a defining month in my life when it [...]

Sex Love and Obesity Part 10

Dissociative Identity Disorder – My Super Power

In part 8 of Sex Love and Obesity I was getting on a plane and going back to wrap up my life in Portland - put all my things in my car and move myself all the way across the country to be with the man I had loved for the last 10 years. I did that. I arrived in North Carolina in February of 2014 after 3 miserable months in Portland of trying to [...]
