Just starting

I am new to blogging and decided to create this blog to share my story and fight with a near 20 year battle with anorexia and bulimia. I am currently in "real" recovery for it and hope this blog will allow me to validate where I have been and where I am headed. This blog may be triggering as I will be posting pictures and numbers. I do this not to trigger but because I need to validate where I have been and how far I have come and will be going. Everyone is different and I have spent time in patient and partial enough times to know that eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes.

What often drives anorexia for me has always been not feeling emaciated or thin enough and comparing to other "true" anorexics. This has been so damaging because heights weights, and body types are different yet one can't deny the criteria to fit into anorexia and I fit it entirely no matter how many times I try to analyze it differently to try and say I wasn't that bad etc.

Well my littlest son just woke so I shall return this evening to get this site going! ((hugs))
