Celebrating My Eating Disorder Recovery Anniversary with Poetry

by | 6 Mar 2024 | Eating Disorders, Updates / Personal | 4 comments

Today marks another year of my own Eating Disorder recovery. As I pause to reflect on this journey, I’m reminded of the highs and lows, the challenges and triumphs that have defined my path to healing and beyond. At this point in time my own Eating Disorder seems so far in the past, but my desire to stay in the field and working towards change doesn’t waver.

In honour of this day, I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone a little and share a poem that I wrote about this very experience. It feels a bit vulnerable moment, as my poetry isn’t something I typically share, but I believe that in vulnerability lies strength, and in sharing our stories we can find connection. So here we go:

I will see you with another blog soon!
