"Back in the early nineties, I was diagnosed with both anorexia as well as bulimia. I’ll always be in recovery, it will always be a fight to, you know, not want to get that control back. But, I’m happy with the way I am and if this is who I am, then this is who I am, and I might as well enjoy it.
I’m bi - so I’ve always felt like I had to be a certain size and shape to fit into, you know, any relationship. Society makes me wanna be thin and tiny and you know, a size two, which I was. And I always thought it would be harder to find a partner, male or female, and I found that no, my partners like my curves!
My therapist was my best asset, he was in my corner and he helped me work through issues and realize I had body dysmorphia. At a size zero, a size two, I felt like I looked like I was a size twenty eight.
I’m more comfortable with my body now than I have been in previous years. It’s taken me awhile to get used to the newer shape, but I kinda like it. It’s squishy and makes me happy and I love food!"
