cut for ED trigger warnings )That's enough to screw with a person's brain - and,more to the point,metabolism, triggering starvation mode and ensuring the minimisation of any weight loss, as well as impairing brain function. WHAT THE FUCK, IN TERMS OF AWARENESS-RAISING, CONTRADICTION, BOYCOTTING ETC, CAN WE DO?

Suggestions please. Goblin is FUCKING ANGRY.

update to previous

 1) I LOVE YOU ALL, for being caring and supportive and generally just fucking wonderful. I don't know what I'd do without you, i really don't. Thank you so much to everyone who commented or texted - you did *so much* to help restore something approaching sanity, so thank you.

2) Spoke to managers/landlord's agents - it's them that demanded compensation for last time, and are being cagey about putting things in writing; i don't even know who the landlords are, given that my contracts are signed 'on behalf of Hockley Lodge Ltd' and nobody except old people's homes in Ireland come up when i google that.. Anyway, they said they sent their plumber in yesterday (while I was out, and without telling me: are they allowed to do that??) and apparently my shower door leaks, or doesn't fit properly, or something (I noticed that before, but as I hardly ever use the shower, seemed little point in kicking up a fuss about it; certainly the floor always does seem to get very wet when anyone showers) so they claim the leak did come from my flat. They're sending another plumber in tomorrow or thursday to sort it out. Am a bit confused over previous tenant's compensation claim, as they're claiming 160 for a nintendo console plus a game, which Grace who knows all tells me is way over the odds. (Also, contents insurance? I have insurance now, too! might that cover it? Am i still liable if they don't have any?) Eep. They weren't blaming me in a nasty way, tho, yet...

3) Just ftr, because I don't want false sympathy, I'm pretty sure I don't have an ongoing anxiety disorder. I do have a very strong trauma/stress overdrive response which is apparently common for people in/coming out of abusive/traumatic/destablisising situations or relationships, and i'm officially mildly anxious and mildly depressed, but certainly not in any kind of day-to-day debilitating sense, and it'd be denigraing the bravery of those of you who do have such things to claim  I suffer at any equivalent level.

4) did i mention i loved you all? xxx

OH MY GOD SO FUCKING ANGRY (and also quite upset)

 With the police (for failing to talk to each other, keeping me waiting 3 hrs, telling me contradictory things, etc) but mostly with Darren, for accusing me of having Munchausen's syndrome. Since I told him I didn't want to talk to him any more, he's sent me 15 messages (unanswered), 3 phonecalls (unanswered), an email, a facebook message (from his cat!)  plus references incl. 'flatten the litle cunt', and 'nothing more offensive than being ignored' on Twitter, all variously threatening, pleading and affectionate, and he accuses me of being unbalanced and lying to manipulate people. 

This being the man that told Jim & Joanna outright I'd forbidden him to go tomorrow, told Grace God knows what, lied about a significant number of my friends and their relationships to me, told me at least one of my friends was in love with him, broke into my facebook twice at least, locked me out of fbk and Twitter, told me Tone was convinced I was having an affair with Farren and was pestering him with phonecalls about it, plus a selection of other lies...

PLEASE SOMEBODY, TELL ME I'M NOT MAD AND HA THIS CONSTITUTES UNREASONABLE BEHAVIOUR? I mean, it's not normal, is it, doing all that stuff? I'm not really Munchausen-y?


please help, i'm doubting my own sanity here. :o( xx

Why Those Boots Ads Piss Me Off

 Rantette of the day is over the boots ads with the slogan  'losing weight is the best thing I've ever done', and here is why. Many reasons, see fbk, but quite apart frommy own personal gnarghhh,  here's a few:
cur for possible ED/food triggerage )
And fewer people would feel ugly and like shit.

Books to Read If You Want to Get Inside My Head

For the edification of the few and inexplicable; I'd be absolutely fascinated to hear others' equivalents!

Linguistic Mission Statement, or why i talk nonsense in the way i do

Someone wrote this to me earlier: Actually, it’s kinda funny. I’m not an ‘English bod’ as it were, but I can’t stand abbreviations and acronyms, yet you being someone that essentially breathes the language, has no problem with them. Knowledge is power perhaps?

...and my answer turned into a bit of a mission statement. So i thought i'd inflict it on the world, especially that part of it on here who have to put up with my relentless acronymage!:cut for rambling about why i use language the way i do ) Maybe?

help me people!

i have the lovely Kai, from Sheffield, coming to stay betweeb te 15th and the 20th. She's never left Sheffield before and this is her first visit to London. Might anybody be around to help me entertain her, just in a hanging out chatting, mabe going round camden kinda way? Neither of us have any money, but any suggestions of free Cool Stuff to do would be very welcome. Iknow it's just before Bardcamp,but if i tried to organise a readthrough (i'm still burning to do Women Beware Women! and in fact other things!) would anybody fancy it? When would suit? Might have to be in my tiny garret unless anybody has any other suggestions/offers of places, and i appreciate it's terribly short notice and everyone's probably busy already,but it felt it might be worth asking nevertheless. I've screened comments just in case people don't feel like sharing the intimate details of their social calendars with the world, but will probably unscreen unless requested otherwise - if you might be free, even just in a 'quick cuppa so she can see London isn't just me,the BL and a heap of books' kinda way, that would be marvellous
