My eating disorder has caused me to miss out on so much.
My teenage years.
While all of my friends were out partying and learning what it meant to be a teenager, I was sat at home, learning the calories in bread and the sugar in fruit.
3 years of my life passing me by, my eating disorder controlling my every action.
It was no way to live.
I was slowly killing myself all in the pursuit of a peace of mind I never got.
But now here I am, reclaiming my life back.
I can never got those 3 years of my life that I lost back, but what I can do, and what I will devote every single day to, is making sure that I create a better future for myself.
It’s time for me to be a “normal” teenager, whatever “normal” is.
It’s time for me to chase my right to be free.
