I am a 24-year-old business grad. Currently unemployed and chasing a childhood dream of being a model, which is tricky because I have been plagued by multiple eating disorders for 13 years ricocheting from bulimia to anorexia. My eating disorders robbed me of my senses and I can’t believe how many years have gone by. EDs literally beat you into nothing and it’s an everyday battle.
I suffer from anxiety, I was diagnosed in early 2012 and I also have been suffering from depression since my late teens. I struggle with a lot of discontent in my life and feel trapped by geography. The depth of both mental illnesses get deeper the older I get, as pessimistic as I am about recovery I’m still here fighting the fight and that counts. I will dig myself out of this even it means digging with my finger nails.. this is no way to live.
