Whenever I have trouble sleeping it triggers me. I was able to take a class at NAMI called WRAP class. It stands for wellness, recovery, action, plan. I know WRAP class helped me. I found all four WRAP certificates in binders I got at NAMI over the years. I put all four certificates together that each have my name Ayesha Karim on them. I feel really blessed to have had insight into my difficult illness. I eat healthier now. I try to get fresh fruits and vegetables as much as I can. I don’t eat meat but I love chicken and seafood. I like fish too. I weighed myself today and I lost almost fifty pounds on my own following a regular eating plan but eating nothing other than fish and seafood for months. I’d love to lose another thirty or forty pounds but that’s it. I like my curves though. I don’t want to be thin or weigh under 177 lbs.
