Just a lil #haiku to commemorate my #edrecovery from anorexia and bulimia. To anyone struggling and suffering, know that I feel your pain. I know it’s harder than “just saying no”. The oft prescribed notion to “just love your body” is a far greater hurdle to surmount than many realize. It is much deeper than fat. Not just hatred of the skin it is loathing of the whole self. All the people who compliment a fleshed presentation of self you know was unhealthily achieved – know they aren’t trying to damage you further. Know you are not alone. And know that any and all baby steps add up on the road to #recovery.
