I am a 36 year old photographer who just moved from DC to my home town in Ohio. I'm recovering from anorexia and exercise bulimia. After 7 years of suffering with an eating disorder I started treatment in December of 2015.
I hope to use this blog to give the honest and raw truth of what it is like to have an eating disorder, be in the middle of treatment, fight for freedom and hopefully recover.
I'll be sharing not only what it's like to gain the weight, feel deep depression and frustration during treatment, but also coping skills that have helped me, stories that will make you laugh and how I'm navigating life through recovery.
I'm a woman of faith. I LOVE music. I'm a wife. I'm a photographer. I loved to cook, then hated to cook, and now I love it again. Sarcasm is my main language. I love to read. Millie my Komondor and Chester my Newfoundland bring me the most joy. I love to travel. I love tea. I love to sing loudly in my jeep, even with the top down. I'm an outgoing introvert. I'm big on family. I'm always doing some sort of craft. I HATE when people chew loudly. Flowers are my favorite and no matter how bad my eating disorder gets, I will never stop eating Popsicles.
Disclaimer- There are many ED blogs out there and many opinions when it comes to sharing photos, numbers, calories etc. My goal is to be very open and honest about these things when I write. I promise to always give a disclaimer if there are photos or numbers written in a post so that I do my part to keep anyone from being triggered :)
