Almost two and a half years ago I was living in a small town with the love of my life after some seriously shit twists and turns prior. I was suffering. I found this photo after going on an Insta-cleanse and I was shook. Not only due to the since forgotten memories that resurfaced but also due to how unhealthy, unhappy and horribly pale I once was. The image to the right is one I took today as a comparison shot, it's hard to believe that the me on the left couldn't stay awake through a full day, couldn't hold down a meal and sure as hell couldn't tell up from down, this isn't one of those 'I got better look at me go' posts, because as far as being 'better' I've got a long way to go. Today I wanted to show you all that you will not get better over night, because if it was that easy everyone would do it; no, you will get better slowly, with time and love and food. Your body will only treat you with the kindness you bestow upon it, and your mind will only get better if you chose to let it. I'm still a small, semi-sad girl with multiple personality disorder and a list of other frustrating mental issues, but I'm alive. Today and tomorrow. And I'll be damned if I let that go to waste.
