”Andropause!” There is a connection with aging. Read the article at <lightinthecloset.org> Beyond that, like most of us, I’ve struggled, purged, and binged. In the long run and IMHO, CD may have caused problems in my life, career, and relationships – I’m not sure! What I do know is that it has also brought comfort through the struggles. One of the suggestions that has worked for me (as with my running) is tying it to something that is inarguably GOOD for me, like sensible eating and drinking, exercise, and reading. For the last 20 years, my CD has helped me stay fit so I could wear the clothes and the look I found satisfying. I’m sure you can give it up if you need to or want to. But, it might be good to reflect about what the replacement might be, because there will be one. The cure might be worse!
