When I chose to recover from anorexia, I decided to start a blog to capture the struggles and triumphs that would be my recovery. When I started blogging, I never realized that it would gather an audience of people that would soon become regular readers. My blog then turned from a personal journal into a way of showing people that recovery could be fun!

I showed people my meals, encouraged readers to take part in challenges – basically, tried to put a positive spin on recovery. I like to think that my story helped people realize that recovering from an eating disorder doesn’t have to be a completely miserable experience. Yes, it’s hard and there will be bad days, but I was determined to make my posts positive and pass that positivity onto my readers.

I also had the honour of being a moderator on the eating disorder recovery forum. This enabled me to give advice to those who needed it, but I’ve always made sure to only give advice that I have used myself. It also gave me a chance to reinforce what I already knew about recovering from an eating disorder, so while I was able to help others, I was also helping myself in the process. As a moderator of an eating disorder forum, you are responsible for making sure that there is no triggering content on the site and looking out for people who are in need. It made me feel good knowing that I was able to help people from all over the world and share my knowledge and experience on eating disorders and how to manage recovery.

Not only have I blogged about eating disorders, but I’ve also blogged about my experience with anxiety.

I found when I was struggling with my intense anxiety, there was nowhere on the internet I could find a story similar to mine. After all, anxiety is different for everyone. I did some research and realized how common anxiety disorders are, and so decided to give a descriptive and completely honest account of what I had been through on my blog and what I had done to overcome my anxiety.

Blogging about anxiety gave me the opportunity to write my first post here at Libero Network that was on how I cope with anxiety, and it was incredibly fulfilling. Not only did I know I was helping people with what I learned whilst struggling with anxiety, but I also knew my experiences weren’t going to waste.

I have learned a lot about how to cope with anxiety over the past few years and I believe there can never be enough information out there on it. I hope to continue to help others with their struggles and give back to the community.

There are so many ways to give back. It can be anything from donating money to volunteering to simply sharing your story on the internet. Everyone’s story is different and sharing your experience can help to inspire others to better themselves and impact people in ways you may never know.
