When I opened up with my battle for life basically, I talked about a lot of the good things that I had made it through. I think it’s very important to look at the goods and the positives of recovery because that’s what recovery is about.
However, I don’t believe in candy-coating the consequences. I don’t believe in keeping the bad things from people because that’s what makes the good things so good.
Through my eating disorder I completely abolished my immune system. Even though I am overweight now(a consequence of eating right). I catch everything. I get everything. Infection spreads through me like wildfire.
My kidneys are weak. This will be my second kidney infection - the first one almost got me. I went to the doctor and got the proper meds, but now my ears are infected, my sinuses are infected - I have to make sure it doesn’t spread to my heart.
Please don’t do this to yourself. Please let me be an example of a consequence. Love your body and love yourself.
