Life After an Eating Disorder.

A year and a half since my last hospital admission.

Five days after my graduation ceremony and the morning after Post Malone’s concert. Tiredness and nothingness seemed to be reoccurring motifs throughout my life but at this that stage they had almost entirely taken over.

“Feels like a lifetime just tryna get by … but I can’t move on … you remind me everyday I’m not enough but I still stay.”

It wasn’t an easy admission but then again when is there ever an “easy” admission? They all seemed harder in their own ways whether that be the crushing reality of growing up, family tensions compacting around you or the everyday look in the mirror.
