    if you can't turn to food to get the comfort and you need that comfort immediately?

    don't really feel I can call people at this time of night and they wouldn't really understand what is driving me to feel I need the comfort or that I'm trying to avoid eating.

    guess i'm just feeling alone even though I know you guys are there. You don't really know me do you. I think I'm just feeling a little sorry for myself and I'm putting up a bit of a defensive wall - I get easily hurt sometimes and my reaction is to withdraw and think I've only got me to look out for me in this world.

    sorry if that just sounds like ramble

    I dont like calling people after 2200 but I know I really can, and have called my mum, a LOT later than that.

    Id be on here or MSN, theres usually always someone on MSN :)

    I know what you mean by not really knowing anyone on here but your the only people in the world who understsnd what this diet entails and that makes you all close in a way - sorry thats probably ramble too! hugs sweets!

    Yeah - Usually some random :)

    When im alone i can't ever find comfort - but i do find distracting and usually that will do until i get a text reply/someone answers my thread/i go on MSN.

    Pamper yourself xx

    Hey.. this is something thats scaring the crap out of me at the minute as michael will be leaving for germany on friday.. and after that its just me on tod.. and im thinking.. how the hell am i going to manage all those nights alone.. you know.. theres no food to comfort me now.. or there is.. but i dont want to have to resort to that you know..
    what i usually would do is talk on msn.. concentrate on minis.. look through threads.. answer stuff.. go and have a nice bath (although i nearly licked my mint choc bath bomb the other day.. now that is bad)..
    i guess the good thing about minis is.. w're here.. and we are together.. and theres always someone who you can count on.. whether it be someone you havnt talked to before.. or someone you talk to all the time.. we're minis.. and we're in it together.. and you're one too.. and by powers of deduction it means you are NEVER EVER alone..

    kitteh - i like your powers of deduction. I now understand how you feel about Michael going and I send you big hugs in advance of Friday so that you already have a bit of snuggly hug blanket around you when he departs. I will be thinking of you.

    Thank you for this - lovely of you and while I'll PM you to get your mobile number I truly hope I never have to use it. I so appreciate the offer.

    I've bought myself a DS lite and find I can spend hours on there, which is a great distraction.

    yes, BG's post about not being able to find comfort when alone but being able to distract herself struck a chord but it didn't work for me last night. I seemed to want to be comforted so much that no distraction would have worked for me.... although I was v. productive at the same time as I updated my website and I'm loving how it looks now. Every cloud has a silver lining :)

    I must admit I use to decorate at odd hours of the day and night! The kids would come down to find a totally revamped kitchen!! For me it was theraputic and comforting ....
