24 million people are struggling with an eating disorder in the USA. I am going to tell you right now that I am one of those 24 million. My eating disorder has ruled every aspect of my life since I was 8 years old. Now after a long 10 years of being held captive by my disease, I’ve made the decision to break free. Here in this blog I will be chronicling my journey to recovery, however long and however difficult it may be.

      1. I really and truly love your blog. It helps to know that I’m not alone, but hurts to see you struggling. This “award” is actually more like a chain letterβ€”the details of it really confuse meβ€”but I wanted to thank you for staying strong and for the work you’re doing toward helping others, just by getting your story out there and encouraging others to seek help.

        You’re very welcome for the nomination, and thank you for continuing to share your story πŸ™‚

    1. I started writing this blog when I was about 15 and a half. I am actually 17 now too. My blog is just over a year old πŸ™‚ . If you ever want to talk, please feel free to email me. It would be nice to know someone else who has or is also facing similar struggles πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you for sharing your blog! I will be sure to read your posts πŸ™‚
      I am sorry to hear you are struggling with this terrible disease as well. If someone has a physical neurological illness, such as a brain tumor or MS, family and friends are incredibly empathetic and supportive. When you have an eating disorder though, everyone seems to view it as a choice and because of that, those of us with eating disorders are usually left to fend for ourselves.
      It’s a very hard illness, but please feel free to email me by clicking the “CONTACT ME” tab on my blog. I’ll get back to you ASAP πŸ™‚
