A residential home for eating disorders didn’t work, but returning home to the support of her loved ones did xoxox.
October of 2013
I was diagnosed with an eating disorder. I began dropping weight significantly.
By January 2014, I stopped eating almost completely and was diagnosed with anorexia. I could not function. My grades were getting low, and I could barely walk. My hair was thinning and I was frequently in the hospital with feeding tubes.
My life was in danger.
June of 2014
I went to a residential home for teens with eating disorders.
It didn’t work for me, as I got homesick after a month or so. I went back home and continued to struggle with my eating.
Slowly, with the support of many amazing people, I was able to overcome this long battle with anorexia.
As of about a month ago…
The doctor told me I was officially at a normal weight for my height and my blood and thyroid levels were normal now.
I still have days where I struggle, but I must say, I am must happier and healthier than I was before. And I could not have done it alone. (Pic was taken after the good news :) )
