I thought I was a diagnosis. I thought “Eva” equalled anorexia. But now I know that it doesn’t. After 3 years of struggle I’ve learnt that I’m a beautiful, brave, and strong young woman. With the help of God, my great friends, and a wonderful family, I’ve beaten the eating disorder.
It was a hard job. But definitely worth it!
I’ve learnt who I am, and that I deserve the best. Those times, when I was sick, and small and sad and hollow are gone.
Now I’m an independent, strong young woman. I’m learing at a university and have a job. I still have my beloved and precious friends and I still have my family. I have a boyfriend and I’m a proud owner of a cat.
If I can make it, you can too. Please never give up.
It’s always darkest before dawn. And believe me; it’s so beautiful to see the sunrise.
I know that the world is full of wonder, and I live my beautiful journey called life.
I’m a survivor, a warrior, a fighter.
I’m my own hero.
