I get raw. I get real. I get vulnerable.
I share with you my honest account what some days in recovery feel like in hopes that others feel less alone.
Below are excerpts from this episode.
"My eating disorder was my worst enemy and my best friend. You tell me that anorexia is bad, you tell me that bulimia is bad yet you have the audacity to stand there and look me in the eyes and tell me I look beautiful"
"You have no idea the battle people are fighting because you can't always see an eating disorder, it is not obvious... My 6 pack abs were a reflection of the irony that was the societal image of health. I looked like the epitome of wellness while on the inside being the epitome of sickness."
"Eating disorders are not illnesses of the body but illness the mind. So no it may not look like my body is ill but my mind is. So don't tell me I look beautiful, don't ask how to look like me..."
When we talk about it we remove the shame, we take its power and we heal <3
