Why I Walk...
I would consider myself an intelligent and happy person. So how is it that I got caught in a toxic relationship with anorexia when I knew just how dangerous it is? The truth is, like any addiction, it starts out seemingly harmless. And then that "one time" turns into your life and soon enough, Ed (eating disorder) has taken over the wheel in your mind.
I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa about three years ago. While managing stress and anxiety, Ed crept into my mind and took advantage of my vulnerable self, providing relief and a way to cope. Finding myself again was a long and arduous journey, but thanks to the dedication and care I received from my doctors, friends, and family, I now have taken control back into my own hands.
My hope is that by sharing my story, others will gain the courage to take their own steps into recovery. After all, the hardest—but most critical—part in gaining your independence from Ed is to admit that it exists.
While I was so fortunate to receive the necessary treatment, there are hundreds of people unable to access the same care and are left feeling helpless. By donating to this cause, you will be saving lives from this terrible illness.
The funds go to prevention and treatment programs, research initiatives, and provide direct help to less fortunate families. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Please share this with your friends and family so we can fight this battle together!
