You're actually one of my inspirations to go down the route of psychology, Jess. It makes me feel better knowing you're succeeding with your studies and that you're going to be doing that kind of thing, too. It's reassuring.

I don’t know if you have this thought, but I always worried that I wasn’t “fit” to be a counselor/therapist because I am so “f**ked up.” Now that I’ve been through quite a few therapists and am in training to become a counselor, I realize that if you are going to try to be a counselor, you are going to be so much more helpful and authentic if you’ve owned your story. The people in my program who have had fairly “normal” lives are the ones I really worry about as counselors.

This is, perhaps, one of the most poignant analogies I have seen about relapse.

Today, I want to “forget” to pack a snack for work. I want to skip work. I want to trash all the food in my pantry. I want to run until I collapse, then get right back up and start again.

Basically, what I’m saying is, I want to quit recovery. I want my eating disorder because it is so much easier. I want to know that I’m good at something. I want a way to get rid of this stress.

Instead, I’ll take a shower. I’ll go to work. I’ll eat a snack, then dinner, then another snack. I’ll come home and read. I will take my medications and go to sleep.

And I will wake up again tomorrow and do it all over again, even if I’d rather not.

The reason why Harry wasn’t chosen for Ravenclaw was because he tried to catch the Hogwarts letters from the air instead of taking one from the fucking floor.

What is this sh*t about “Flashback Fridays”?

Today is National PTSD Awareness Day - “flashback” has a real meaning.

Your poor 90s fashion choices are not the same as someone who has experienced rape, war, torture, or any other trauma.
