Choose a picture (non-triggering) that speaks to you with regards to the experience of an eating disorder and/or recovery. Write in any way you choose about what it means to you and why and what lessons can be learned from that. You don’t have to write a thousand words, but if you would like to – feel free!
For the most part my eating disorder has been a lonely existence. By that I do not mean that I have been on my own as I haven't. I have always had the support from friends and family but despite this I have felt lonely. It is not an illness you can openly discuss for fear of rejection or being judged. I was ashamed and disgusted by the person I had become. I had lost my character, my zest for life, my ambition and fight. At times recovery seemed so near yet so far, but I couldn't just reach out and grab it. So this picture represents the periods in my life with an eating disorder.
