Hello people I'm new here, be nice! Having some problems, kid stuff compared to what a lot of people are going through on these forums but I wondered if anyone could give me some advice or a big hug Summary I'm overweight and have been trying to lose weight for years without success. NHS don't want to know because I'm only 'obese' not 'morbidly obese'. I tried not eating but couldn't bear it and ate loads. I eat for boredom and comfort mostly. Don't eat lots of crap just too much (double servings etc.) I hate my university course - should have been done this year but due to a problem academically I had to resit a module over a whole year! So I've got a year to go on the course I hate and all my friends are graduating as we speak, its frustrating. Can't find a job, so I'm totally bored and have no money I have OCD which is much better than it was a year ago but I can't seem to rid myself of the last remnants, and for those who have done CBT treatment, it's not the sort of thing you can do if your symptoms are intermittent like mine are now. I live on my own (I pretty much have to given my OCD) which I don't actually mind normally but having fallen out of step with uni friends etc. I don't see people much and I get very lonely sometimes. I'm worried about getting a job etc. when I graduate given the economy I recently realised I was gay and I'm not sure how I feel about relationships etc. - I'm not into the casual sex scene in the city, don't seem to be many gay people who are like me and want to have meaningful relationships I'm pissed off that when I do find someone I won't be able to marry them Sorry for the rant. Not sure what else to say..
