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.
