One of my roommates, who discharged last Friday and was totally awesome, started teaching me how to knit.
As part of my recovery, I have a goal to pick up some new hobbies and interests. It’s a way of getting to know myself again and developing other things I can value about myself than my body.
She helped me start knitting a scarf, and I’m proud that I have continued working on it since she left. I plan to have the knitting as a new distraction for the evenings when I watch TV by myself after LK goes to bed and JJ works so I’m not so focused on food. I also like using my hands and creating something new.
