I'm new to this group, and I'm not even sure I fit the criteria for FASD or ARND (yes, I've done my research). My mom drank for the first 5-6 or so weeks of her pregnancy with me; like a lot of women, she says she didn't know she was pregnant. I don't know how much or how frequently she drank. I was premature by almost a month. As a kid I was pretty disruprive and angry, although there may have been other contributing factors. As a teen I had a lot of health problems: also, I was antisocial and almost did not graduate. I've had various addictions of my own, including booze. As an adult, I'm doing okay-- holding down a full-time job, living on my own-- but it is very hard at times; I have a lot of mood and psychological issues, trouble with emotion regulation, and I've never been good at forming and keeping relationships. A former counselor of mine suggested I may have Borderline Personality Disorder. I had known about FAS, but I only recently learned that it is a spectral disorder. I'm basically just looking for more information to try and figure out a) if this might be part of the reason for my issues and b) how others in my situation have handled it. Thanks for any imput.
And I think I've finally figured out why. One reason is that I am bored with the workouts I do. I get up at 3:45am so that by 4:30am, I've had enough time to force myself into exercise mentality. And have enough coffee. After my YouTube workout that I do on mute (so I don't wake my neighbors), I shower and get ready for work, then I head out for a 50-minute drive so that I'm at work by 7am. When...
my family doesn't know what to say to me about my bulimia they have sent me to rehab but I always get back to my old ways.
