18 years ago, I gained an eating disorder and lost an identity.

It wasn’t a great exchange.

But it wasn’t a complete write off.

This is a story about finding an identity and giving an eating disorder up.

Finding Melissa started as a website. It accidentally morphed into a blog. It’s now a bit of both. The blog runs along the side and is, as blogs should be, chronological. The categories are theme-based and not located in one specific time.

It got a bit messy because I didn’t want to start writing until I would be able to talk authentically about recovery.

I think we can safely say that it’s been one hell of a journey, but I really think I am getting there.

The categories are to your right and the blog is here.

This link is a bit of background starting point for new-comers.
