Who am I?
I'm Emma and I'm currently a student and mental health worker. In a nutshell, I'm passionate to improve the narrative of mental illness and make the self-care of our emotional wellbeing much more accessible. In terms of my blog, I post regular articles about topics such as my day to day life, recovery from eating disorders and the continued work I am doing. It would mean a great deal for you to join this community and support us in raising awareness of taking better care of our minds and wellbeing.
I developed an eating disorder between the ages of 12 and 13 and it started taking control of my life and relationships when I was 16. Over the next 2 years I was fully embedded in all the crap that comes along with wanting to be thin enough (Spoiler Alert: there is no 'thin enough'). But I am now at a stage where I can look back and see the illness in my behaviour and amuse myself in my old attempts of sitting A-Level exams with nothing but Maltesers and a Coke Zero to fuel my brain.
I do not share numbers, weights and try by best not to share triggering photos.
