Summer Seasonal Affective Disorder (yes it’s a thing)

I have spent the last few summers miserable, irritable and tearful. Needless to say, it was difficult to distinguish whether I actually had an issue with summer, or was simply going through a rough patch with all the other disorders that decided to pop up now and then. Last Summer was quite definitely the least…

The unavoidable bloating- Anorexia recovery.

Fact: People bloat. Fact: It is normal for our stomatch to stretch after a full day of eating. Fact: You’re going to bloat. Even though it is absolutely one hundred percent normal and temporary, it doesn’t make bloating any less 1) Painful  2) Easy  3) Triggering. When you start increasing your calorie intake, you won’t…

A Day of Fear Food

I posted a photo on twitter the other day and said ‘Recovery, take 5’. I had therapy yesterday and something just, well, clicked. We were talking about how long I’ve been in therapy and how at the end of th day it’s up to me. I can’t rely on other people, and I’m going to…

I’m going to try writing this post without starting to violently punch capital letters into my keyboard but I can’t promise that. I’ve put off writing this post for a long time because I knew that I’d just start pointing out…

My Eating Disorder is Called Ballet.

It was what I’d been working for my entire life, but it was slowly killing me. Ever since I’ve been tiny my one goal has been to be a professional dancer. My parents both worked in theatre, and my Dad worked in the Royal Opera House, which resulted in a large amount of my childhood…

My Anxiety and ED Apps

Hey there it’s Casy 🙂 So today I’m going to blogging about my fave Anxiety and ED recovery apps. These apps are so helpful. Being a sixteen year old girl my phone is always with me, and that means no matter where I’m am, I’ve always got something to encourage me to eat or help…
