• What is Recovery

    What Does Recovery Mean to You? This is an age old question, I've answered it a few times and I think I've answered it differently every single time I've done it. It all comes down to one thing, to the main issue. My biggest issue is my eating disorder, which leads to my self-hatred, my rubbish self-confidence, my weight and a lot of frustration unlike any that I've felt since I was about ten years old. The ...

    I found myself praying…………….. for the essential miracle which keeps body and soul together….and…..for a loving work ethic which does not judge me when I can't do it.“O to overcome my “CAN'T “in times of love and adversity in the bosom of Jesus”, I bleat and sigh.He alone comes to the aid of my weakness and incapacity. Just as He promises to all those who ask Him. Praise and Glory to Him.

  • Notes To Myself On Living

    The same fundamental chord of experience which causes me to experience mental illness over and over again is not something I can change. I can be very well but I still have it playing under my skin. I can refine my habits and change my lifestyle but it will not stay quiet. I can find work and find love but it will not stop influencing my experiences with its abstract tones. I can pray to ...
