💓DAY 6 MH UPDATES💓 I had the best day today guys❤️ I’m sorry if these daily updates are annoying, I just really enjoy doing these and it really helps me appreciate just how good my life is. SO! Today I went to ellsworth with my mom and dad and we went to a lot of stores just for fun! And we also went to Denny’s and I had this amazing burger! It’s called the slam burger, it has a burger, bacon, lettuce, hash browns, and queso sauce on it!!! It usually comes with eggs too, but I asked without. Annyyywaaaaysss.... long story short me and adam went to ellsworth... and......... I got a fish🥰!!! His name is Ponyo!!! He’s a guppy and he’s so adorable💓 I love him with all my heart! I hope he loves his new home. And right now I’m laying in bed sucking up all adams warmth from the bed since he just left... and snuggling a bear he got me with his cologne on it❤️ #selflove #selfcare #love #recovering #selfharmrecovery #selfharmawareness #survivor #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #loveyourself #notashamed #acceptance #triggerwarning #selfharm #cutting
there are some little familiar comforts here and they’re what’s keeping me sane 🖤
yd was really an average day. sleeping in, preping brunch, doing the groceries, making dinner, working out and stretching, eating.. but I kinda failed these pancakes this time they still had a dough-ish consistency and were not fluffy at all but the toppings and melon tasted good. other than that I'm just staying up again all night, relaxing more than studying
Dinner tonight is an apple with PB2. Today my ex came and took away all her furniture from my apartment so I’m finally all ready to go home! Tomorrow it will be exactly one week and I’m so so so ready. Please send me Tells, I’m bored as hell!!
I’ve been receiving so many beautiful messages, texts and phone calls from everyone and I just wanna say a massive thank you to all those people who have reached out to me ✨ Many of you don’t know this but I have been very very sick for the past 3 months where my health slowly deteriorated. For what reasons I cannot say, but my operation on Friday to remove a large section of my cervix was extremely necessary to insure that I go back to being a strong healthy person that I was before. Some days before this operation, physically I would be so sick that I would constantly vomit/ feel so weak to the point where I would sleep hours and hours on end. Other days I was good, not the best but I felt a tad normal and wasn’t so sick. Mentally it’s been a battlefield in my head. Overthinking and non stop sleepless nights of me crying and wanting everything to go back to normal. Overall I have mixed emotions in regards to everything, but I know that Friday was a huge step into the right direction in regards to my health. Currently I am in a lot of pain and I’m basically bed ridden until things get better. My family have been so amazing to me where as a simple task that I cannot do they help me with complete love and patience as they understand what I’m going through. Once again a massive thank you to everyone for your wishes! I basically cried reading all the beautiful heartwarming messages that Ive been receiving 💞 #feelingthelove #recovering #appreciationpost
I binged yesterday and today. It is 7 years into my eating disorder and have been seeing a therapist for around two years. It’s definitely the best investment I have made and have experienced so many incredible shifts in the way I view, life and acceptance parts of me I thought I never could, in my relationships etc and I still have days like yesterday and today that make me feel like shit, feeling like you are taking steps backwards.
I binged on a fuck tonne of peanut butter, dates, oats, a vegan slice I made... then I exercised last night and this morning telling myself it would help counter at least a bit of the damage. Then feeling more alone because I feel like I can’t talk to anyone close to me.
I am disappointed and also not surprised. The more you go into recovery the more you become aware of your triggers, signs a binge is coming and how restricting/purging either through fasting, exercise or vomiting only fuels your next binge. I am realising it starts with changing how you respond when a binge does happen. Every part of you wants to restrict but I know I need to make my default self compassion not self loathing. Breathing now, forgiving myself and sending love internally. It’s hard but it’s the most important thing, to begin to accept those parts of you that once felt unloveable.
Food, relaxation, & binging on my favourite show is ‘purrrrrfectly’ okay this lazy weekend🐱

Ya girl looks like she robs art museums for a living. 🖤🎨🖤
It's crazy how things can change in an instant. I have learned that falling from heights is not my thing... as I have recently sprained my left knee. It sucks when you feel like your life is starting to pick up after being in a rut, only to have to take another step back. I'm really hoping that it is a quick recovery unlike my ACL tear in my right knee. Feeling a bit down, but reminding myself that I will heal again with time. I hiked last September in Mount Rainier which had been less than a year since my ACL surgery... so I know I will get back into hiking soon enough. Be careful and take care of yourselves ❤ #badkneemcgee #forlife #weakankles #recovering #blessediguess #thissucks #nature
Why?? 6 weeks ago I suffered a broken talus(bone in the ankle), and a bone spur that chipped off. So shit went sideways and the ankle blew up with a septic blood infection. Lucky and grateful to be alive and to keep the foot. Rehab on the ankle and a recharge on the antibiotic and antioxidant based diet to get my system back on track.
“the message is this” & it’s an important one! 🖤
