After viewing CNN’s recent honest and powerful documentary of the late film critic Roger Ebert’s life, we decided it was only fitting to re-post this article from Roger’s blog: “My Name is Roger, and I’m an alcoholic ”
~by Roger Ebert (August 25, 2009)
In August 1979, I took my last drink. It was about four o’clock on a Saturday afternoon, the hot sun streaming through the windows of my little carriage house on Dickens. I put a glass of scotch and soda down on the living room table, went to bed, and pulled the blankets over my head. I couldn’t take it any more.
This is a fabulous post, stop everything and read it. (click here)

We strongly advise you to seek help from your primary physician and ask him or her to refer you to the appropriate specialist.
I am looking for help. About 6 years ago I developed severe anxiety due to job loss. I lost my appetite almost completely. I struggle with appetite loss almost every day-in addition I have diabetes. You see the problem. You have to eat when you have diabetes. Yet I have anorexia. I don’t know what to do. I have been thinking about tube feeding, but this will devastate me financially. I have never heard of something like this. I need help. Any help you can lend would be appreciated.
