I'm OK...

Wow...it’s been a different few weeks. Work is busy, family is busy and I feel a bit behind.

It’s not about me tonight...

It’s not about me tonight, and it will be short and sweet.

I was feeling a bit off today...

I was feeling a bit off today (like most days), and then it hit me.. my need to say something...

All you need is within you…

Although it broke my heart in many ways, I knew my health was more important, and I decided to reach out for help.

Surrendering...

I have been hospitalized twice for my eating disorder, and they each offered a unique experience, with a twist of what the hell is happening to me.

It’s okay to have a voice…

I’m reminded everyday, of how precious and short, life can be.

Damn recovery…

Although I am so very grateful to not be in the same place, both physically and mentally that I was nine months ago, I’m learning that recovery is filled with ups and downs.

Learning that I’m OK…

I don’t know how it is for other people...when you check your weight on a scale or see an old photograph from a year ago and they just don’t look right.

Appreciate those that don’t give up on you...

Sometimes in life, things seem to go wrong, and it feels that our journey is all uphill.

Discharge Eve and feeling emotional…

Over my time in the hospital, these people forever changed my life in more ways than words could ever explain.

My name is Penny and my blog has been written to take you on my journey of living with an eating disorder. To share my strength, hope, courage, tears, sadness and heartache, and my wishes for a better tomorrow. I don't know how my story will end, but the words 'I gave up' will never be printed. I am choosing to battle for my life an yours! I hope to spread awareness on Eating Disorders and Mental Health Issues.
