MY LETTER TO YOU, WARRIORS ON INTERNATIONAL MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK


In honor of International Mental Health Awareness Week: If you’ve ever struggled with Mental Health issues, read this.


*Honest ED Share Below, Warriors:

Yesterday I got sick, stomach bug sick. A lack of sleep from the night before & a bad strawberry I had at lunch. Two hours after eating, I was on a conference call and started feeling incredibly dizzy, to where I had a hard time focusing on the conversation and started breaking out in those not-so-fun sweats where your body is telling you, “Hey! Something’s going on wrong here!”

After the call, I went upstairs and found myself hunched over the toilet throwing up from whatever acids and food was in my stomach.

I get sick a lot like this, especially when I travel outside the country. Each time it happens, I repeatedly have the question running in my mind, “How did you do this for so many years — voluntarily?”

I was anorexic and bulimic for just around 15 years, and an alcohol for 6 or so in between those years as well. How I did it for so many years, CHOOSING to harm my body to the point of being starved, unconscious or throwing up makes me honorably call MY BODY the real warrior in this handle name.

Thankfully, I’m much kinder on myself today. I’ve learned to implement much better strategies and tactics for dealing with stress, anxiety, overwhelm, loneliness, feeling “weird” and in pain.
