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 am currently studying my BSc in Nutrition and Health. I plan to lead by 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.
