I am typically a very reactive person. Something makes me mad and I respond with verbally or physically with little time taken to consider the consequences good or bad. Recently there has been so much going on that I just need some time to process it all. We finally got moved into our new home and have been so exhausted from that. School and work haven't taken a break either. I appreciate the time I have been given to breathe a moment and really reflect on all the great things happening. However, on Monday I received a call from my previous ED clinic that really sent me into a tailspin of emotions. I have felt many emotions regarding the call I received and have needed some time to process what it all actually means for my recovery going forward. I definitely want to spend time sharing this experience and go into more detail for all my readers and supporters as it is an issue so many struggling with eating disorders face when it comes to treatment options. However, I want to be able to spend the time necessary to form a coherent, thoughtful, and meaningful post that expresses my emotions without sounding like I am ranting or standing on a soapbox.
So, please stay patient. I have written time into my day on Saturday to dedicate to this upcoming post and I can promise that it will shed light on some of the issues facing eating disorder treatment in the U.S. I can't say this enough, but thank you for your love, support, and taking time out of your life to read the words that come straight from my heart in the hopes of educating others and helping others see life after ED. This is a true passion of mine so I will always encourage you to share the blog via your social media accounts or even privately to friends and family members. Seeing the love and support is a huge part of my recovery and what keeps me strong on the days I am feeling the weakest.
<3 Stay Strong and Beautiful
