There I was, a recovering anorexic who struggles with anxiety, trying to hide from the world due to my lack of confidence.
The thing is, at the time, I was too young to have a gym membership, and had no idea where to get proper information on nutrition and workout, in addition to some emotional support along the way.
The big problem was that I knew I wanted to get healthy. I know I had the POTENTIAL to be healthy and make good choices, but I was so upset and caught in a vicious cycle about all the things I had done, and mistakes I had made about how I was treating my body.
Then, as if by chance, something amazing happened…
My mom told me she was scared that she would have to bury me. I realized that I was actually bringing MORE negative attention to myself and my eating disorder, when in fact, I was trying to hide it from the world.
Eventually, it became crystal clear to me how to reconnect my body with my mind, because they had to start working together in a healthy way if I was going to come out of this. What it came down to was that I had to acknowledge WHY I felt like I wasn’t worthy of health.
