My name is Kayla and I am recovered from an eating disorder. Let me say that again: after a struggle that consumed nearly half my life, I have fully recovered from Anorexia.
I must admit that I never thought I would say those words. There were times when I didn’t even really believe in this thing that people called “recovery.” Anxious and toe-tapping I would sit in the back of the room at talks like this one. I stared at the carpet and listened to peoples’ stories. I heard their rhythmic ways of speaking, the soothing voices, the sentences full of courage, of love, of success- but I didn’t believe them.
