The Beautiful Recovery

Just the ramblings of a girl called Erin on the long and bumpy road to a beautiful recovery

Quick reminder.

metamorphosisofmeg:

There is nothing selfish about mental illness.

You are not selfish for the things you may have done.

You are not selfish for the people you may have hurt.

You are not selfish for the thoughts you may have thought.

You did not ask for this.

This is not your fault.

Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.
If you are healthy, please reblog.If you are sick, please reblog.If you have a disability, please reblog.If you have an invisible illness, please reblog.If you know someone with a disability, please reblog.If you are a human being, please reblog.Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it. 
Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance.

 💕Today💕

Today I went to town with my Aunty and had an absolutely lovely time. We went all around the shops and got almost all of my stationary for school so now I am even more excited to start my final year of school. 

I have also volunteered to bake a cake for the new year 12s mixture so I am excited for that because I love baking and organising things. Plus it is all good practise for when I go on the Great British Bake Off (a girl can dream can’t she haha)

This morning I made apple pie oats and they were incredible so I would like to thank you all for suggesting recipes! Because of you I got to enjoy a lovely breakfast!

Much Love

💕Erin💕

Having an eating disorder doesn’t make you a bad person. It makes you a sick person.

Trying to infect other people with your illness makes you a bad person.

wawasari:

my ultimate goal is to be at peace with myself, eliminate toxic feelings and elements and energies from my life, unlearn negative and harmful practices and thought patterns, stop checking for people that don’t check for me, create a space for myself that is nurturing for growth so that i may generate loving energy for myself and for others, nourish my spirit and balance my energies, i have big dreams and i deserve to live a life i love and let that love radiate
