This August marks five years since I began my recovery from Anorexia and Bulimia. I suffered silently for three years before treatment was my only option. Recovery is the most rewarding journey I have faced. I have learned more about myself in the past 5 years, than some people learn in their own lifetime. I'm self-aware, I am thoughtful, I am compassionate, I'm wise, I'm strong. I know God chose me for this because I will fight loudly against the voices in my head.
Recovery brought me my husband. We have been married for just over 2 years now. In January of 2015, we found out I was pregnant! We both fell in love instantly with our little pea and could not wait for this new journey to begin. However, the Lord had a different plan in mind, and called our sweet baby home with him, before we would get to meet them here on earth. My miscarriage was the perfect time to fall back into my old ways.
