One of the best pieces of advice

It came from a best friend.  Not a doctor, a therapist, a dietitian, a nutritionist, a naturopath.  Not a professional.

From someone that knows me.

This was our conversation:

“I need me to be me again, but I don’t know how.”  I texted her.

Her response was spot on.

“You are you.  You will always be you.  You’re suffering from an illness that is NOT YOU.”

She’s right.  I will always be Lisa.  It’s the illness that isn’t me.

Fuck you Eating Disorder.

Thanks NV.  Love NMM.

We’re in this shit together.  Always.
