I feel I am a cliche in stopping for so long and then shyly creeping back, but here I am.
It’s been quite the few months… an amazing vacation to Europe, a desperate try at reconciliation with my ex, a new business venture, and the ultimate break-up of the relationship (no contact for over a month – crazy!). Lots of ups and downs. The break-up has hit me hard (you’d think this time would be easier, but it’s not. More familiar, yes. But not less painful). The new career activity is exciting and terrifying and exhilirating and overwhelming all at once.
Then there is the eating disorder.
I’m both embarrassed and proud in that respect. Embarrassed that it is still a very active issue. Proud that since the break-up I have actively devoted time and energy to recovery (the relationship would always pull off that attention).
The busy-ness of life means I am choosing to spend much of my time in areas of my life beyond this site. However, my therapist has been encouraging me to resume celebrating the wins in my recovery journey. I decided the place for me to do that is here.
I plan to use this space to record my little wins and my big wins. I have lots of places and people that help me to process the challenges and this will be my place to acknowledge the successes.
