Who am I? Such an intense question. Right now I’m not 100% sure. But I don’t really care. I just want to try and live my life without labels.
I like to think of myself as a strong, independent, creative and intelligent woman. I am battling a terrible disease, but sometimes I feel I like I have the edge. Scratch that, I usually feel like I have the edge. I want to make a difference in this world and help other people fighting this.
I am going to go to college for Early Childhood Development, then I hope to go to Brock University for their Bachelor of Arts in Child Development and then go to McMaster University to become a Child Life Specialist. It’s about eight years of school, but I know it’s worth it. I want to work on the eating disorder unit at McMaster and use my story to help others recover.
Don’t give up on your dreams, let them drive you. As long as one inch of your spirit wants to get over this, you can. Even if you don’t have an eating disorder, any mental illness can be fought with this willpower.
I am always open to talking. If anyone has any questions about what I’m saying or just need to vent, I love sharing and listening and I want to be there for each and everyone of you.
