Trigger warning for Eating Disorders.
My name is Rhiannon. I’m 21 years old and live in Australia. For the past 2 years I have suffered with Anorexia. I became very sick, and was so underweight that I was almost admitted to hospital.
But for the past 8 months I have been in recovery. I am learning to eat again, I’m learning to be happy again, and most importantly, I am learning to love my body again. For a long time, I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror. But now that I am almost at a healthy weight, I can look in the mirror, and absolutely love what I see.
I’ve come to realise that there is far more to life than what the scale says. I can now accept who I am as a person and what I look like. I have come a long way over the past 8 months. I have discovered how strong I am, and have pushed past the hardest and most emotional 2 years of my life. But I’ve come out the other side, a stronger, happier and healthier person.
What you weigh does not define you. You are all beautiful. Each and every one of you. And you all deserve to live an amazing life.
I have created a website to share my story and give advice about eating disorder recovery. I hope to one day change the way people think about eating disorders, and save at least one person’s life in the process.
So if you would like to learn more about my story, or need some support, please have a look at my website: http://rhiannonsrecovery.weebly.com/
Remember, you are all beautiful. Don’t EVER forget that. And don’t EVER let ANYBODY tell you any differently.
