Reconciling With My Toxic Past and Then-Undiagnosed Eating Disorder

It is never easy to reveal the vulnerable side of oneself to the world, but it needs to be done. It is also not easy to see someone else do this, and meet a level of support and validation that has not been given to you. I have even been told that I have not truly suffered because I have always had a network of support.

We’ve all been there before. Someone might say, “What do you have to worry about?” or “What is there for you to be depressed about?” We use words like depression and anxiety very loosely without giving them much thought. I do not tell my story “just for the attention.” This is me reclaiming control of my situation.

In college, people used to say they hoped nothing would ever happen to me because I was always so nice to them.
