Please read... eating disorders
Last July, after only being out of hospital a few weeks. I decided to raise money for BEAT, the UK eating disorder charity. -
At the beginning of last year I was sectioned under the mental health act and spent 6 months in hospital barely existing. I was discharged when my weight was ok and I was 'not a health risk' and I completely gave up. I tried to take my life. And when that didn't work I tried the only other thing I could think of.... I joined Instagram and the recovery community. -
I honestly didn't expect anything but I started to follow people in similar positions as me and oh my god I was so inspired.
I saw people posting pictures of there food, challenging themselves EVEY SINGLE DAY! Getting out of bed, always trying, being real. -
I got something from starting this account that I'd never found anywhere else... HOPE
And I wanted to give that to as many people as I could.
I started a sponsored recovery. I set myself challenges. Faced ALL of my fears. Cried more than I thought was possible. Documented the entire thing.
And as much as I thought that the entire thing was torture. I did it!!!! -
I met every challenge, I pushed past my set bmi. I talked. I went to all my sessions. I shared it all on here to inspire myself and others. And in the process I raised £1035.58!!!!!!
And I am well on my way to full recovery! -
That money will help so many to get the help that they deserve! I can't thank everyone enough for supporting me through this! For the first time in my life I'm actually proud. And so thankful!
Recovery really is possible! I believe that now! And I will continue to do everything I can to help people who can't access the treatment they deserve! #positivebeatsperfect
