Winter camping? Really? I was reading about it recently and it sounded like self torture. I'd love to hear about it when you tackle that.

And sushi - I am SO up for that. I will gladly show you the way. I'd also be interested in going to a wine tasting, if you want company.

And #49 (get a new AHC card) is interesting. I just recently did that, and it felt very comforting.

So do you have a hard time loving yourself? Me too. I have confirmed negativity condition, anorexia, body dysmorphic disorder, and constant thoughts of suicide. I don't even have any real friends except for my fiance, but I'm hoping to make some friends on livejournal. I believe that everyone, in their healthiest physical state, is beautiful in their own way. Yet I can't even love the way I look. That's one of my main struggles. I always feel like I'm never good enough because other people treat me so poorly. It's hard to love yourself when people around you don't. But my advice is to do all the things you love to do, and then praise yourself for doing them. That helps me, but I know I need more love than that. Message me any time.
