In the Beginning…

So I’ve had a break from writing and I don’t think I’m all that wonderful at it anymore. I decided I needed to start blogging, in the hopes that a random anoretic or bulimic would stumble across this page and be encouraged to recover or feel that they can or have the support that is necessary to them at this current point in their life.

I guess I also needed support from you guys too, the people I know.

Not many people know my story, or about the last two years. Basically, I have been recovering from Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. I have been seeing a dietitian, an eating disorder specialist, I’ve attended an outpatient program at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and a day program in Glebe. No, I am not entirely well – but I am most definitely on the way!

All praise to the God who upholds and sustains.

So perhaps some posts will be downhearted, some upbeat – but I want you to come along with me on my road to recovery – a whole, fulfilling and wonderful life.

 

Love, Rebekah.

    • Hey Kara!

      Thanks so much, it means a lot to know that people are actually reading / learning more about eating disorders through this blog.

      I hope what you learn is useful 🙂

  2. Here I am, a random bulimic stumbling across your page, hoping to find the strength to get well and the courage to speak out. In the 30 years I’ve been alive, this seems like the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. The deeper I dig the more I realise how completely in the grips of this ED I am. Even as I live and breath, a daughter of The King, I am still trying to do life alone because it is the only thing I have ever known. I am daunted by how long this walk to recovery could be. I know I should want it at any cost, but the perfectionist in me fears failure. The stumbles and inevitable backsliding. I want to get it all right, all the time. I know it will be ok in the end, I just need to take the first step. Baby steps.
