Anonymous asked: I went to the psychiatrist for the first time today. I didn't get prescribed meds and it bothers me. I am very unsatisfied. My boyfriend and I broke up today too because he said I need help and need to love myself first and I did love him.
I’m sorry you are unsatisfied. But, in my own opinion, I think it’s great that your psychiatrist didn’t immediately prescribe you something. They should get to know you a little better before pushing meds on you. Now, I have no problem with medication. I’ve been on several, some that helped loads, some that didn’t. But I think your psych is doing the right thing by waiting a little.
I don’t doubt you loved him and I’m very sorry you are hurting now. Learning to love yourself is one of the best things in life. I hope that you can take this time to do just that. You deserve it. ♥

A child doesn’t know HOW to walk when she first begins to try. She just knows that she doesn’t want to crawl anymore. She sees others walking and thinks, if they can do that, I must be able to do that too. I crawled for a long time. And I’m here to tell you that when you decide, no matter what, that you aren’t going to crawl anymore, I promise you…you WILL learn to walk. — A Recovered Life
Anonymous asked: I don't know how to survive all the ups and downs of life without my eating disorder or my addiction... I have gone to 5 inpatient treatments have been weight restored multiple times. I come back to my life and I hate myself. Each time I'm like alright let's do this and then I leave something bad happens at home and it starts all over again. I'm currently starting to think I just need to figure out how to live with an ED and an addiction
You could do that. If you want to live life that way, that is your choice. But I want to make your other choice clear to you. Not knowing how to survive without your ED or addiction is not the same as not being able to survive without them. And the way you learn if by doing.

Anonymous asked: I want to thank you and this absolutely amazing blog. This past year I fought off the urge to starve myself. I read your story and it makes me want to give you a hug. I struggled this year because I was under a ton of stress; like yourself, I was finally becoming comfortable with who I was. Then I began to get these thoughts of having to be perfect, having to have a tiny tummy and I never used to have those thoughts. They scared me. But your blog is an absolute inspiration <3 Thank you.
Oh you are so welcome my dear. So welcome. Thank you for sharing. Remember, you always have the power to choose life. Come back anytime you need some inspiration. xo ♥
