As of right now, I will not be posting any more journal entries. This was a difficult decision to make. There are definitely more journal entries to reveal, but I need to take action and make something more of these than just a blog. I never planned on doing this; in fact, I highly anticipated sharing the entire journey on this website. However, after a lot of thinking and professional writing advice, I have decided I want to work on these posts more and create something bigger.
Let me assure you that you will be able to read the rest of the posts eventually—however, I can’t tell you when since I don’t even know myself. All I do know is that this is the next step I have to take and I don’t want to risk self-publishing all of my work on this site if my gut feeling is to do something bigger.
I did not intend to use these posts as bait, only to leave you hanging. In fact, it pains me to know how long it will take to complete this entire process while you wait to see what happens next. I will keep the other posts up on the site for others to read when they visit. I hope they can serve as a way to still connect to those who are suffering with an eating disorder, as well as a way for others to understand what having an eating disorder is like.
Posting has been a great outlet for me mentally and has actually aided in my recovery process. It’s like releasing difficult parts of my past for good . I am doing much better and I feel like a better, stronger person for everything I’ve gone through.
I encourage anyone to write about their life as it happens; keeping a journal could possibly aid you in the future. I have learned so much about myself after looking back at these entries and continuing to write about my journey today.
