Before you start reading... There has never been a time when our community and content was needed more. Unlike other sites, we don't publish sponsored content or share affiliate links. We also don’t run ads on our site and don’t have any paywalls in front of our content–-anyone can access all of it for free.

This means we rely on donations from our community (people like YOU!) to keep our site running. We want to be here to support you all through this pandemic and beyond, which is why we are asking you to consider donating whatever you are able.

A single (or monthly) donation of just $5 will make a HUGE difference and will help keep our nonprofit running so we can continue offering peer support for mental health through our content.



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.
