My name is Lana. I Just hit 20 years, Out of which 12 were filled with disordered eating, depression, isolation, and loneliness.
Countless therapists have told me I need to discover the reason to find the cure. At night I couldn’t sleep because my brain was running every possible option, so I could finally lay my demons to rest. It never worked. I still have no answer. I still don’t know where it all came from.
But after 12 years I finally decided it didn’t matter. My mind is my mind and although it may not always work in my favor, being hateful towards it and obsessing over its triggers doesn’t do me any good.
I decided to accept myself and give myself the greatest gift of all; time and patience.
It is a rocky road, but for the first time in forever, I see progress, I feel love and from that draw the strength to go further and overcome my issues. And I know now, one day I will be free.
If you struggle with mental health issues at the moment, please take this to your heart; the toughest people may fight the longest, but the calm and caring people can sometimes end the fight before it begins 🙂
