Hello again! So, I know it’s been a while since I wrote last, but I have some content today! A bit of an update on me, and another (small) instalment of 1794. First, it’s finally like summer around here – sometimes a bit too much if you ask me! Montreal has been experiencing bouts of … More 1794: Part 8 and Almost Recovered
Hello again! I’d like to write about something else today. I feel more of a normalcy surrounding my anorexia recovery by writing about it on my blog, which helps me feel better and I hope it makes others feel like they can talk about their struggles too. It’s not such a big, scary, taboo creature … More Feeling Everything
First things first: Part 8 is on the way! I don’t want to rush it and post something I didn’t feel was ready, so I’ll write more of it this weekend and give you another little weekly update instead for today. At my last appointment with my therapist, I cried. I didn’t really want to, … More Survival Is Insufficient
I’m getting more and more excited for this story. Maybe that’s because I’ve written the beginning of a preeeetty pivotal event for the plot and the relationship between certain characters! Leading up to this part, I guess most days it was just hard for me to get back into it after spending the nights of the last few … More 1794: Part 7
Yes, things are starting to get moving! In the story, yes, we find out more about Mary (didn’t she have a cough? And what about Alicebell? And Hugh?!) and a few other characters. But I mean that things are moving again, in my mind, body, and life. You’re all aware of the little relapse I … More 1794: Part 6 (Finally!)
I know it isn’t Monday, but while I was getting ready for bed tonight and reflecting on the hopeful and exciting day tomorrow that is my 23rd birthday, I thought about how much I’ll have to loosen up on on my rigidity and “rules” I have set up for myself (thanks, anorexia! *rolls eyes*), including … More It’s Part of Recovery: Part 2
Good evening, my dearest readers. It was quite the day in Montreal; 26º C at its warmest! Everyone in the metro seemed happier (which was a nice change for a Monday morning), everyone ate outside for lunch, and all I could see where shorts and t-shirts. I was so excited to wear my new overalls, so that … More It’s Okay, It’s Part of Recovery
Deep breath. It’s time now to write about my recovery story. I’ve been dreading to write about this because I’m feeling more and more excited about this blog and the short stories I’m working on, and I didn’t want to go into a, quite frankly, bummer of a subject. Don’t get me wrong, recovery is the … More From Bad, Worse, to Better.
Wow, I never would have believed I’d receive so much love and support from launching this blog last week. To everyone who read my first post, checked out my other pages, and told me how much you liked it, it meant the world to me. It really did! To be perfectly honest – which is what … More This Isn’t So Bad!
Here I am, finally. I’ve wanted to have a personal blog for a long time (4 years actually), but I was always too scared to make one. Scared to write anything, scared of what people will think. I thought blogs were narcissistic, and I didn’t want to be seen as such. What a silly assumption! … More Let’s Start Here.
