"Stand up against mental health."
Welcome to Eat to Freedom, my personal blog about my recovery from anorexia.
This blog was born out of an arduous 10 year battle with the eating disorder anorexia nervosa and the co-occurring conditions of depression, OCD and generalised anxiety.
Life changing is an understatement. Through this darkness though, I have emerged a much stronger person, a fighter!…I have grown into the person that I had suppressed for so long.
Now recovered, I have never felt so positive, so optimistic, so determined and so free….it truly is liberating. I no longer feel hijacked and controlled by this overbearing, suffocating and deadly illness.
Now, I want to impart my determination and encouragement onto anyone who needs it. I want to dispel the myth that you can’t recover. Recovery is possible.
Today and everyday going forward, I want to encourage you to believe that hope is alive. That you are worth it and that freedom awaits.

Life is a dance we do. Hear the music..the sound of change...Finally we are a soul set free…
May the day soon come,
when a smile beams across your face again,
and your eyes sparkle with magic.
When you learn to laugh once more
and your giggle becomes a welcomed melody.
Today I will dance under the light of the moon.
The day will come again,
when touch brings you comfort
and happiness is bliss.
The day kindness speaks to me again.
Today is the day where a fire is lit, ignited, born and brand new
and you will fall in love with being alive again.
