For those who have lost a significant amount of weight, how did you get comfortable in your skin? I’m on a journey right now to get as healthy as I can because I’m tired of feeling like sh*t all the time. And I realize food is an out for me. I’ve improved my relationship with food a ton, but now I’m struggling to accept what is left behind as I lose the weight. The thought of being judged by a partner during intimacy is so so invasive. Anyone else experience something similar?

I need some direction. My sister-in-law's mother has early onset dementia and is in a memory care home as she cannot take care of herself and requires too much care for her kids to take on personally. While in the home today, she had a seizure and fell to the ground. Per the cameras in her room, she was down for 25 min. She got herself up and fell again. She wasn't found for another 17 min. This is the second time this has happened. Does anyone have any solid attorney (continued in comments)
