    This was such a brave and beautifully written post. I am so glad that you broke this and it didn’t break you. Your honesty will help others, of that I am sure

    I really admire how beautifully you wrote about such a sensitive and personal issue. I just couldn’t stop reading! You are such a brave woman and I’m sure this is what will inflict your daughter- i.e. your bravery and positivity, not your genetic bulimic.

      Wow Polomi thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to read my post <3 It's so strange that I could never do it for myself, but for her I'd jump in front of a train…

    Wow. This is so powerful! I’m so sorry for all that you went through. I admit that I had a mini battle with this in high school and college, but not to your extreme. It was awful though, so I feel for you greatly. I’m so glad you’re okay now!

    This was such a touching story. I suffer from anxiety and depression and I cannot even imagine what I would feel like if my kids go through something similar. It’s great that you were able to open up to your husband and talking about it makes a huge difference.

      Thanks Pooja, it really is something we need to be aware of and treat if we don’t want to pass it on. How do you cope with the anxiety?

        I did some regular therapy a few years back which was helpful and some hypnotherapy later on which I found super helpful. I also took medication for about a month but it did not work well with me so now I use CBD oil and lots of yoga/meditation.


I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
