Still Me

Often, once a person has developed an eating disorder, it is easy to begin thinking of yourself as an Eating Disorder. Once a person has been abused, she begins to think of herself as a victim. Better than a victim, is a survivor, but I think no matter what happens to me, I am still me.

Abuse, eating disorders, addictions, life experiences have changed me forever, but I am still me. Please, see me! Understand me! Don’t lump me in a category, so you don’t have to know me.

I want to be loved for who I am. I want to be heard for what I have to say. I want to be known for what I have to offer.

Please, don’t forget, I am still me.
