Where I am now

Hi Everyone,
It’s been a while since I last posted what has been going on with me. I have moved out from my sister’s place and moved into a bedsit(with my cat Kyi pronounced Chee it’s Burmese name) for those of you who don’t know me, I have had CKD for over 13 years and been on dialysis for 11 years. My Mum is 95 years old and has severe dementia. She lives with my sister and I help with her care. I had been living with my sister because it was either that or being sectioned because of my eating disorder. I have now got to a weight that is acceptable to all concerned and have moved to this bedsit. I am safe here and I have my cat I go to my sisters everyday for meals and helping with Mum but….I am not happy. I try to be involved with GMKIN and other social media sites, but deep down I want to be isolated. I want to lose the weight I have put on over the past 9 months I have spent with my sister. I know most of you won’t be able to understand my thinking but I am hoping you can put aside what you have read or heard regarding eating disorders especially anorexia and listen to me.


Born in the Wirral, left home in '78 and lived in Croydon/Wallington/Woldingham/Folkestone until coming to live near family in Shevington in '05. I have a son Peter 25 yrs lives in South London and is a staff writer for a techie magazine. My Mum is 95 this year and has dementia, is cared for by my sister and myself.
