The blogging world has always interested me, most likely because I'm a very nosey person and like to hear about people's daily lives and what they get up to, what makes they smile, what makes they sad, what TV programmes they've watched, what music their listening too,what they've eaten that day, what recipes they made etc. Therefore, blogging seemed like the perfect thing for me.
Like many of my favourite bloggers, i have a eating disorder. I was diagnosed 3years ago when i was 13years old (well just before my 14th birthday to be precise). Since then, i have been hospitalised twice in eating disorder inpatient units. Such experiences have shaped the person i am today and although i hated why I was there for the obvious reasons which was of course re feeding and most dauntingly weight gain I do have some very fond memory as well of that time. Of course there were hard times when I thought i just can't do it anymore, there's just too much food, I'm full to the brim, already too heavy, big and fat, however those low and difficult times were made easier by the lovely people that i met, boys and girls, some older, some younger than me, all in the same position and just as scared as me. They were the people who got me through those 10months I spend as an inpatient in total. Sadly, i know i will never be the same Lucy i once was, in fact i don't really remember who i was before my eating disorder. I appear to have in many ways lost my identity to my eating disorder, but i am determined to be more than just an eating disorder and find the old Lucy, who is still there and dieing to come out.
Well, that's enough about that, I it hard to talk about- probably because i was in denial for so long and still haven't accepted the fact i do have an eating disorder and i do need to gain weight.
