What can YOU say in six sentences?
I lied to myself for many years, but in 2009 I was eventually diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa. It's been a long and slow and painful and awful process; eventually ending up bulimic and in a hospital bed after taking an OD. I decided I was going to begin recovery. And not just the type of recovery that meant I still didn't like my body and still weighed myself every now and then and still had a somewhat abnormal relationship with food: I meant completely recovered.
So here I am: I've thought I was fat since the age of eight years old, I've binged and purged and restricted and overexercised and abused laxatives for far, far too long but now I treat my body in a healthy way, do not restrict, do not overexercise, do not have any fear foods and damn, I really, really appreciate all my body has done and continues to do for me.
So here's to being recovered.
