I’ll be frank. I’ve had well over my fair share of mental illness in the form of bipolar and BPD but… it’s time to no longer let that define me. I am building myself a life for me, myself and I. Yes I still have my mental illness to contend with  but I also have much more going for me now I’m further along the recovery road than I ever thought possible.

A passion of mine – that is mine and not that of my mental illness’ is healthy eating and fitness. I want to become a dietitian and will be studying my BSc in Nutrition and Health come September 2016. I plan to lead my example. I plan to be a beacon of hope to those who think healthy eating and exercise is an impossible task. I care.

I’m not just talking about the overweight or obese, but I care about the eating disordered as well. This is my health life and journey, laid out bare.

  1. Hi,

    I hope all is well with you. Healthline just published an infographic detailing the effects on the body of Bulimia. This is an interactive chart allowing the reader to pick the side effect they want to learn more about.

    You can see the overview of the report here: http://www.healthline.com/health/bulimia/effects-on-body

    Our users have found our guide very useful and I thought it would be a great resource for your page: http://theimmuredlion.wordpress.com/2014/04/10/what-is-bulimia-signs-and-symptoms/

    I would really appreciate if you could review our request and consider adding this visual representation of the effects of bulimia to your site or sharing it on your social media feeds.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    All the best,

  2. I’m proud of you and grateful for you.
    If no one tells you I will: Your story is needed in this world.
    You are brave for creating this imperative blog.
    In addition you’re courageous for allowing the pen/keyboard to teach others; as well as becoming transparent so people will know that they are not alone.
    Happy Writing!

    1. Thanks you. I’m currently writing a book about it all, in the hope of trying to work on stigma. Together we can make the world a better place for people with mental health difficulties. X
