So they say


I have trouble remembering this for myself, believing it, and allowing it.

  1. I understand. I feel like I need someone else’s permission to do any of these things. The truth is we don’t need anyone else’s permission, only our own . *hugs*


  2. Hey, thank you for visiting my blog. I am sorry to read that you are suffering and I reallly hope that you found some hope in my post. I have walked in your shoes and when I was really ill I found lots of people/sites that had suffered ED themselves but very few that had recovered (or willing to admit their pasts with ED). I got so low that I came as close to suicide as possible at my worst, ED are undescribably awful and the disease makes you hate yourself and feel totally alone. I want to say to you and everyone out there suffering that you really can pull through this and come out of the other side. 3 years on I am in a totally different place. I am happy, I no longer obsess over my body and although I will probably always have to be careful around food specifically in times of stress or upset I feel in control of my life and I am so grateful every single day that I am still here to enjoy it. So please keep fighting and believe me when I say it will get better. I had help, I used what I found helpful (some was, a lot wasn’t) and I found my own path.

    I wish you peace, I wish you happiness and most of all I hope that you find some self love and compassion for yourself. I hope that one day you will be able to look in the mirror and see yourself the way the people in your life that love you do.

    Amy x


  3. The honesty in your posts is refreshing, sometimes unsettling, but always pragmatic. Voices like yours make our struggle real, so thank you. And thanks for dropping by my blog!
