I’ve had a tricky few days, emotionally speaking.
I’ve been overwhelmed by the support from my friends and family since I went public with the fact I have an eating disorder. I’ve come to realise just how much my family and friends care about me and it’s given me a very positive outlook.
People have told me that they already knew really, but they felt I needed to realise it myself. I always think that’s the best policy because people only get help when they want it. You can shout and scream at them about their problems, but it won’t make an iota of difference if that person doesn’t want to help themselves.
I just want to thank everyone, you know who you are, for telling me that you’ll always be there for me. It genuinely means the world to me to have your support and to know you will always be there and that I can talk to you whenever I need to.
I’ve finally admitted to myself that I have a problem, which is the first step, I still want to fight this on my own, this doesn’t mean I want to gain weight, I’m still classed as healthy for my weight, but I don’t want to lose anymore. I know my friends and family won’t push me and will let me find my own way so I don’t feel like there is pressure, just that there are plenty of ears listening to give me support.
Thank you, I love you all.
