Living in Partnership with My Mental Health

As you can see from my latest posts I’ve changed focus from solely mental health to health and fitness as well. This represents a change of direction in my life in that I am more well and able to persue my passions and interests – although I still have to contend with my mental illness in order to do so I’m getting there, slowly but surely.

Nutrition and health has been a big passing of mine since I was eating disordered, however as I came out of the eating disorder I still cared about the obesity epidemic, healthy eating and being fully nourished as opposed to using this information to malnourish myself. I want to help people with their nutrition worries whether they overweight, obese, or anorexic. The torture that can be felt living every day int he prison of malnourishment is a horrible place to be and I want to help set as many people as I can free from those cages of poor nutrition, but I want to lead by example.

I’ve already overcome a 9 year eating disorder and am well on my way to being healthy. In fact I am quit healthy but I have fitness goals and races that I want to do just for funnies – and this is my fitness journey to completing those goals that seem so far away but will hopefully come true. I’ve done it to an extent, why can’t I do it further?

So here’s to blogging about all aspects of my life, in partnership with my mental health.

  1. Thanks for writing this. I’m embroiled in an ongoing battle with Anorexia/Bulimia/Anorexia with a binge-purge subtype…whatever you want to call it, I’m Eating Disordered. Fitness, and running in particular, used to be a big part of my life and I’d love to get back to a place where I exercise to feel good/relieve stress, and not to burn calories. x
