So here I am, starting a whole new chapter in my life. I am getting back into writing. Writing has always been my go to, my comfort, my answer, my hide away. Life got busy and I left it behind in the dust for so many years, now, like a breath of fresh air, I am diving back in. Publicly. I’ve always wanted to be a writer. For as long as I can remember, it’s been my dream to be a published author and to share my words with the world. So here I am. Shaking in my shoes, I hardly ever wear shoes but nonetheless, here I am world!!!
One of my favorite things to write about is having a healthy mind and a healthy body. I’ve had so many issues with both in the past and consider myself somewhat of an expert on picking yourself up and dusting yourself off after a good cry and moving forward with a “bring it on” attitude. When I was thirteen, my digestive system essentially stopped working which made it almost impossible for me to eat. I was always a small child but had a good healthy appetite so when I stopped eating, my mother, naturally, grew very concerned. She took me to my doctor who immediately dismissed my problem as an eating disorder. One year and a hospital visit later, they still had no answers and poor little me was 50 lbs and dropping. I could barely walk up the stairs in my home and I was terrified. What made it worse was that no one seemed to want to help me, everyone who should have helped me seemed only to want to blame me because they believed the eating disorder diagnosis. I wanted to die, but the end never seemed to come. Eventually they found the cause and I retrained my system to accept food and made my slow crawl back to health with my mother as my biggest supporter, I would not be alive today without her never ending support and iron strong will.
Since then, I have had so many ups and downs and found so much support in the kind words of those on the internet who have been there. I wish to join those masses and hopefully be a voice of hope the way so many where a voice of hope for me. My outlook on these things is a little different though. I do not believe depression and anxiety are life long. My doctors told me panic attacks and depression where going to be my constant companions throughout this life. Ten years later, I have proved them wrong. I believe WE control our brains. WE control our outlook. WE hold the power over our minds and our futures.
