Welcome to My Personal Page
I have decided to sign up for the Tallahasee, FL NEDA Walk for team Better Living Solutions to support the National Eating Disorder Association, a cause which is very close to my heart.
I was diagnosed with disordered eating and body dismorphia almost a year ago. Both issues are likely something that have been a part of me for a long time but were finally diagnosed by Dr. Miller at Florida State University, a step which led me to begin the long journey to recovery.
That diagnosis brought becoming a client at Better Living Solutions, a leap forward I was terrified to take and very glad I did. I have been working with the talented team at BLS since then for eating disorder assistance, as well as counseling for anxiety and depression which have already been a part of my life.
I am still in recovery. With an eating disorder comes a daily struggle to find peace and balance between what your body needs and what the monsters in your head tell you is "healthy".
Recovery is more than learning how to eat: it is learning to trust yourself, learning to love yourself, and learning that there is more to life than the eating-disorder warped visions of "skinny, beautiful, perfect, ect."
It is a lot of hard work, the hardest thing I have ever done. But I am finally finding a happier place, and believing that recovery can be possible.
I will not let my eating disorder define me, and am slowly learning that there is more to me than a number on a scale or a calorie count. I am thrilled to walk along side BLS to benefit the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) and help bring support to all those struggling.
I would be nowhere without the support of those close to me. I have an incredibly supportive family, the most wonderful fiancee, and friends who have become family and who are my rock. Unfortunately, not everyone has that. Please help me raise money to give others the ability to get the help they need and fight the growing problem of eating disorders.
Even better, walk with me! Sign up for the walk at the link below.
