When I developed my #eatingdisorder I thought it was about the food. When I was in #recovery, I realized that it was about #anxiety, #depression, and a lack of #selfconfidence. I didn’t know how to ask for help, so my needs were expressed through #dieting and then as an ED. https://t.co/x6OoRfs0A4

I’ve gone from being in complete denial about my eating disorder to accepting it and sharing my experiences. I now am at the point where I have enough material to put together a mini ebook and it is almost ready to be published. The Beginning of the End of My Eating Disorder will include revised blog articles and some questions for readers to mull over after reading.
I identify with all of these symptoms of #anxiety to a certain degree. Having high expectations for myself, a tendency to overplan, and a desire to be in control all contributed to my #eatingdisorder and my #depression. #Mentalhealth https://t.co/gj41WgLHmA

Rudy, a chubby bulldog, shatters people’s assumptions when he steals the show at an agility contest. Unforgettably, this judgement is not only found in dog shows but also in the medical profession.
A huge part of my #anxiety is that I want to control things in my life. It makes me feel safe and like I know what to expect. But the anxiety causes me to worry more and it just spirals. I now take deep breaths and tell myself “it will all work out.” #mentalhealth #depression https://t.co/AGxZUSdPZB
