My name is Taylor, I’m fifteen (almost sixteen!) and I live in Pennsylvania. I go to a rigorous high school and I occasionally work at my parents’ restaurant. I adore my kitty, Lola. I enjoy coffee and tea, afternoon naps, thunderstorms, and kindness.
I’m currently in the process of finding myself.
For the past three years or so I have been in an internal battle. I have an eating disorder, along with severe depression and anxiety issues. I also struggle with obsessive compulsive disorder, self-injury, and self-hatred. Through the despair, I have found a light, and I am holding onto it with everything I have. I’m pushing against the problems that I have been given, working through them, and I’m hoping to come out a stronger and more resilient person with a story of complete recovery that will hopefully inspire others.
I have this blog to document the daily steps I’m taking through the dark and into a life full of health and happiness. I don’t need perfection, just progress. I have made the choice for recovery, and nothing can stop me.
Throughout my journey I’m trying to develop a balanced, mindful relationship with nutrition and exercise. I am also searching for new hobbies, activities, and interests that are enjoyable, engaging, and inspirational.
My weight was a cage, constantly holding me back from enjoying my life. I’m letting the weight go to achieve personal freedom.
