Hey @Eden1717,

I am here to assure you, you can do it.

It definitely sounds tough, but do you mind to tell more about your situation? Are you experiencing eating issue at the moment?

Love,
Gigi

Re: I am not coping at all

Could you focus on doing some self-soothing and getting some sleep tonight @Eden1717? Is it cold enough where you are to wrap up in cosy blankets and maybe watch some tv or do some colouring?
