    My cure is not a very good one, I start eating, and I tell myself I deserve to have a treat, as I feel so frustrated and tomorrow I'll go back to being good and eating properley, but tomorrow dosn't come! :wink:

    I get some fresh air.

    Hi Airwave,

    Do lots of housework and tidy up! Usually talk to myself at the same time.

    Never be bullied into silence.
    Never allow yourself to be made a victim.
    Accept no ones definition of your life

    Define yourself........

    Eat maltesers until the roof of my mouth is numb. :D Well, they say it is the lighter way to enjoy chocolate, so therefore you can eat ten times as many. Big bags, of course, the ones for sharing, but if anyone went near them, I would whallop them with my stick. Chocolate and sharing does not sit well in my book.

    I moan/rant to someone or via text/email if no one about, listen to loud music in car/on ipod or get engrossed in a job that needs doing. And if I'm fed up rather than mad I eat chocolate!

    I have had OA since mid twenties. It affects my hips and knees. I had a THR on the left aged 30 and now have a resurface-replacement on the right - done May 2010.
