When you can finally tell your story and it doesn't cause your heart to overflow with piercing pain, that's when you know you've healed.
I can now speak proudly of my past and my journey to recovery. I embrace my struggles and allow them to aid in my continuing efforts to become better today and every day. I hold my head high knowing that I am amongst millions of others who can proudly call themselves ED warriors, and prove their resilient strength to the world even in the very toughest of times. I am forever proud of each and every person who has been abused by these demons, yet continues to fight for the life they deserve. My heart breaks knowing that the pain you are experiencing is unlike anything we can explain, but I promise to be here for you every step of the way. We're in this together, my fellow soldiers.
