The Beautiful Recovery

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

every 1st september we joke about getting ready for hogwarts to cover up the very real and very very deep scars of never getting our letters

 Yummy Breakfasts

I’m sad that when I go back to school I won’t be able to have warm porridge but then again I will be able to have my overnight oats again! Huzzah

 Much Love

mha-dani asked: Hi, I run a blog called mental-health-advice. We help with every mental health related issues like self harm, eating disorders or relationship, gender and sexuality issues. We created a live chat and have dozens of pages. It would really really mean the world to us if you could follow/post this for your followers, so we can help even more people. But, make sure that if you do follow, it is on mental-health-advice rather than this (my admin blog) Thanks in advance, Dani :)

Everyone who needs help go here my lovely followers xxx

Hair is looking a little crazy but I don’t care 

I am so excited for school to start again this year because I am actually doing subjects that I love rather than ones that resulted in me crying at least twice a week and made me ill with anxiety because I hated them that much-didn’t help that my teacher was a fucking bellend…

Also I got my pencil case today so I am all set, very anxious about starting again but I can do this, I will get there in the end.

Also, if anyone can recommend me things that I could take for lunch that would be great!

Thank you! xxx

My friend keeps saying to me that I need to get a boyfriend and then I will be happy

A boyfriend is not the answer to all of my problems.
My anxiety will not magically go away just because of a man in my life.
My eating disorder will not ease up simply because someone tells me that I am pretty
My OCD won’t become more manageable just because someone wants to hold my hand.

Mental Illness doesn’t work that way, if it did then nobody would suffer from them because of this simple cure. If they were that easy to cure then cancer could probably be cured with a smile and a little positivity.

Please eat, imagine if in 30 years time you’re still living with this horrible illness because you didn’t make the decision to recover now. Eat that cake and buttery toast before bedtime, have a milky hot chocolate with melted marshmallows in it because although those things seem very significant now, in the bigger picutre they’re really not. In 30 years time you won’t even remember eating the ‘scary foods’ but what you will remember is spending what’s meant to be the best years of your life worrying about grams of fat, sugar and calories.

Anonymous asked: TW Hi Erin I'm recovering from an ED and today was a really bad day and I binged for the first time in ages and I'm scared I'll relapse and I feel so hopeless. What can I do to help myself feel better? Thank you xx

Hi love, accept it as a mistake and move on. Don’t try and compensate because that will only cause you to relapse and go down a slippery and very dangerous path so please try and resist x
Distraction techniques are absolutely key, may it be blasting your favourite music with your headphones on or reading a book. I used to knit because it was very therapeutic, plus you get a present for someone out of it haha!
If you are artsy maybe draw or paint or whatever your preferred tool is.

Be positive, I know it is hard but even if you gave to make a list to remind yourself of all the things that the world has to offer you (which I assure you is many things)

Talk to someone, come off anon if you haven’t got anyone to text and chat to because I will always be here to listen and help

Remind yourself of every bad thing that this disorder has ever done to you. Again write it down to give you physical reminder


But don’t let it take control again because you are stronger than this and I believe in you x

Stay Strong

Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family

Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?
