I am struggling with this blog! I am not allowed to comment on comments anymore. Sorry about that. Does anyone know why that is or what I can do?
Jimee, if you are looking for help from Overeaters Anonymous, their main website is www.oa.org . There you find all the meetings and a lot of other inspirational help.
Lots of love to my followers!

Hi, Jahir, have to reply in a post bec. of technology problems.
Am glad that you find some of the things in my blog helpful.
Here is my reply to your comment:
Hi Jahir, Am not aware of English group in Munich. But there is the English Language Service Board that covers the German-speaking countries. Their e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org . I hope they can find something for you. When I went to OA in Munich many years ago we'd sometimes have foreign visitors who asked whether they could share in English. Many Germans understand English. Just an idea.
Long Time No See!
Hi, I am Sabilon, I am a compulsive overeater.
I am back, determined to keep my blog alive and kicking!
As you see from the title, I am currently in 'step 8 agony'. It has never felt that uncomfortable, that frightening before!
I am working with a new sponsor, and I feel she is pushing me through the steps. I have no idea whether that is a good or a bad thing. So I decided to just share my feelings here, and maybe someone will give me some feedback, maybe about their own experience...e.g.
This sponsor suggested that I put every person/institution etc. that is on my step 4 on my step 8 list. It is shocking! There are people I have envied or I have been felt disliked by, but I am not aware of having done anything to them, and the suggestion is that I make amends to them, tell them that I have been 'selfish and self-centred' in my relationship with them! I am cringing as I look at their names!
While I spoke to a mate in another fellowship this morning and shared about this I suddenly felt some willingness creep in - miraculously -, and I have written three amend letters and posted them (letters, because those people are abroad). I suddenly felt very happy to write them. But when I had posted them I freaked out about the one to my brother. I have made amends to him before, and this may just infuriate and disturb him and make our relationship worse!
I have thoughts of just giving up the sponsor and being without sponsor!
Would love to read your comments.
