When life hands you Mangos..

My boyfriend's mom gave me some Mangos last visit,
I don't care for them when thery're green, but they ripen quickly to that red sweet variety in no time, so I've decided to share my recepie for Mango Freeze smoothies.
It's been hella hot here lately and this is a low calorie safe food that I don't mind keeping down.
Sometimes I need most if not all fruit to over ripen for the simple fact it doesn't hurt that much during the long tedious digestion process that my body endures.
Don't know if anyone else feels this way but I's do, so without further adieu..

Mango Freeze Smoothie ala Lou


  • 3 medium mangoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 12-ounce can peach, guava, or other tropical fruit nectar, chilled
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings.

In another news around the world, I've only bp 1x today and have stayed away from laxatives.
I went through hell yesterday when they started to activate at 4am.
I took way too many, my stomach was a crampy. burning mess. I took so many that I started bleeding suddenly something that resembled a period, still unsure if it's an actual period or not, I don't think it is seeing as how I don't have the mind numbing cramps.

I'm going to look into the Ed support group thing again. I need to slow all of this down before I give myself a seizure or heart attack.
It's not easy, I wish I could just stop all this bullshit really, I don't know why I feel the need to hurt myself so much.
Why do I hate myself so much?

Well I'm gunna finishing working on the Novel, had a lovely time last night before that whole lax mess writing, felt like the block was lifted. Hope I can repeat the writing magic again.
Wish me luck.

Good luck writing tonight, knowing that all your pain has given you its silver lining of insight.

Have you ever tried your mango smoothie with a handful of spinach for extra nutrients? Blends right up and doesn't taste like anything but mango,

I would be all over this if mangoes weren't $5 each and I could find this nectar stuff :/ Maybe one day! It looks goooooood. I'm envying the hell out of you right now :p

This didn't happen overnight, so it won't go away quickly either. Not terribly cheerful, but it's true. I think with straight AN patients the average recovery time is 7 years, but not all of them "fully" recover and have some level of ED thoughts for good. Gah. Death would be kinder! With the developments in treatment since the stats I'm working off were originally compiled I think the average should be down by a year or two now, depending on the individual's willingness to accept recovery.

Love you <3
