I feel like I need to apologize for my previous post, or any unwanted feelings it may have caused. Someone left a very negative comment regarding my blog in general, claiming that because I still have a considerable amount of weight to gain, I am being deceptive and not actually practicing recovery.
I am fine with the fact that she sent her opinion. And I am sure there are others who feel that way as well, but I wanted to take this opportunity to express that I am aware that I have a LONG way to go in my journey. Unfortunately most of you have not known me since the beginning of this process, but I can assure you that I have come a long way.
I write to keep accountable, and I write because it helps me feel better; process the struggles I have on a daily basis. I would love if I could help someone in their journey and I certainly do not want to trigger anyone, but I cannot censor who I am, nor can I write about ONLY the good aspects of recovery. If you know anything about getting healthy, you know it is not always easy and I want to convey that honestly.
Do I like the way I look? No. I hate it and am very uncomfortable with the whispers, stares and mean comments like the one I received this evening…so I am going to continue to work on me, writing, and becoming healthy, happy and whole. After all, that is what MY blog is about…trying to find balance after a long time of distorted and unhealthy living.
Thank you for listening, and I welcome any feedback you would like to offer.
