Hi all,

 

I haven't posted in a really long time, so I'm reposting an introduction and would love to meet you all. I'm looking for people who are struggling similarly to me. I'm active in my disorder right now, so for anything I post or discuss I don't recommend people follow my example. I need support though like all of us! 

 

I am an old lady! 29 and married, but let me tell you as you get older it's harder to make friends. I've been bulimic since I was about 16 years old. I've considered meetings in the past, but a lot of my trauma is held in organized religion and that is the basic tenant of a lot of recovery. Plus, I'm in a complicated mental space where I don't necessarily want it and without that desire it doesn't work for me. 

 

I hope to find a community here and some new people to discuss things with.  I'll eventually link a blog where I'll be discussing everything to do with my disorder that doesn't make it here. Please reach out on this thread if you are looking for pals too! I like normal things: tattoos (my avatar is not me though my thigh is tattooed with an art nouveau tea cup), Schitt's Creek (the best show on or off television), reading (currently The Lost City of the Monkey God), and I work in theatre, so not a lot is happening right now for us. 

 

Nice to meet you all, be well, and remember:

Hi! :) I used to do large scale musicals with union performers in a regional theatre in the Midwest. The last one I did was Oklahoma! and let me tell you the music on that one gets annoying quick! I work at a regional theatre in another state now as an Events Manager. They do mostly new work from playwrights that have not yet been produced. So we get a lot of out of town try outs of new work. Are you a theatre goer?

Ooooaklahoma where the wind comes sweepin' down the plains
I also did a lot of musical theater.
Also I'm 22 and married so we're not really the same age, but I do understand how it's harder to make friends and also married life kinda complicates things. Welcome back, and if you want someone to talk to my inbox is always open!

I used to act/sing/dance and loved performing in them, but then my anxiety hit me hard and I turned into a stage manager! I'd love to chat with another married pal, it is so hard to get new friends some times. Feel free to shoot me a PM and we can talk about your favorites/Hamilton on Disney+/anything else!

I sort of had an identity crisis and had to leave theater, but being a stage manager does sound like it would be a nice way to get involved without being on stage!
I'm gonna message you! I'm pretty awful at keeping up communication, but it would be really nice to chat.

I am OBSESSED with musical theatre - my dream was to be Cosette in Les Mis, Elphaba in Wicked, and Mimi in Rent. I know the lyrics to them ALL... Yeah. I love your thread and am thrilled to see you posting such a comprehensive and well written blog.

Looking forward seeing what you produce

Thank you so much! I'm happy to see that people are relating and that's all I've wanted is to just have people to commiserate with. :) Message me if you want to chat about the Broadway shutdown, the Tony's, or the pinnacle of my career where I got to hold Lin-Manuel Miranda's coffee!
