Turn up your volume--especially if you like country and western. Click here for it. If you're not into country and western, this is an exception as you will still love it.

The idea of it being a mental illness is new to me. She writes about it's impact on relationships with others and with self. It contributes to self hate and I've been writing about self love in a couple of the last posts. What are your thoughts--do you feel you suffer from a mental illness? Can you wrap your thinking around the concept of self love? On a scale of 1 to 10 how easy it is to apply self love--ten being hard and one being easy peasy? No I'm not selling Gyco Insurance.

Some who are only ten pounds overweight are emotional eaters and those who are 50 or more pounds overweight are also emotional eaters. Do you think the classification of mental illness might be connected to how much overweight a person is?
