Anatomy of Recovery


Pro-Recovery
I'm Jules, a 23 year old recent college graduate, currently working and applying for grad school. I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa when I was 14. I'm 100% committed to recovery because I know how amazing it can be. This blog is about my journey and any help and inspiration I can offer others on their own journeys.
I tag all my personal pics "julespic" so that you can block the tag if you find them triggering. I also tag all photos of food with the "food" tag in case they are triggering to you.

OOTD for my last day at my old job.  I felt really sad and empty when I left.  I feel like I’m never in one place for long enough.  A year was a long time for me.  My coworkers were in my life every day.  We lived our lives side by side and then everything changes and that’s just not how things are going to be from now on.  I’m sad to be leaving the sexuality field.  There was a lot of freedom of expression and thought that won’t be part of my new job.  I really value what I’m going to be doing but I will be missing these things.  I’m going to be bringing as much of the that with me as I can.

Change is hard.  Change is scary.  Change is sad.  It’s good too.  It’s hard.

Lately I haven’t felt like a person with an eating disorder.

Is it a trick?

I agree! I just worry that that could become an issue. Then again, someone will always take issue with something. Was just a thought :)

I take issue with how often people take issue :P

I hope it won’t be enough of a “thing” for people to care enough to make issues, haha.  But yeah, it’s something I’ve considered as well.

awkwardlyuninvincible reblogged your post and added:

At what point is someone classified as an “adult”?…

I don’t think it would be good to police someone’s self-identification with that sort of thing.  If it’s something you identify with or feel affinity with, then I think that’s what’s important!

#EDulting, a tag for adult eating disorder stuff

anatomy-of-recoveryI really wish there was a simple tag related to adult eating disorders where we could talk about adulting with ed/recovery

anatomy-of-recovery:

Maybe we/I should make one?  Is anyone else interested in this?

How about EDulting as suggested by muchwillbedemanded?  That’s currently pretty empty empty.  Reblog to get out the word?

#EDulting

I’m just so tired of my knee-jerk, overblown, self-blame, self-hate response to literally everything.

The Nightly Cute Report: Day 33

Hi, hi, hi!  I’m back from vacation and in for a week of crazy because I’m starting my new job tomorrow and working at my old job through Saturday.  I also have an exam on Friday.  Sooooo…. crazy?  I’ve given myself permission to take a cab home from work on days when I’m starting at 7 and getting off my second job at 9:30 or 10, and to buy any foods I need instead of packing them for this week.  I had to say goodbye to my boss today because we won’t be in together again.  I’m teaching my last class tomorrow.

Everything is changing and change is hard.  I need to keep my head from running off.  I need to not let things fall apart.

I’m blurry but cute!!
I’m leaving tomorrow to go for a weekend trip with B, so I won’t be online much.  I’m hoping it’ll be exactly what we need to relax, recharge, and connect.
I have only 5 more working days at my current job!!  This morning I had my checkup with employee health at my new job and I got “NOT CLEARED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE,” so I had to get a bunch of stuff from my various doctors about being healthy and fit to work.  I feel like I wanted to just lie and make things easier but I guess I didn’t.  They were mainly worried about the ehlers Danlos, not the anorexia since my weight is good.  It’s pretty much sorted out now.  I am required to wear a special respirator in rooms with respiratory protocols because of my heart condition.  A normal respirator might put too much stress and increase my heart rate.

WHAT that isn’t fair, I don’t have a Trader Joe’s where I live

That’s a tragedy!!!  You should be sent some TJs stuff!!

trader joe’s is a trap, like target.

I don’t live near a Target so when I get to one I freak out.  It’s so exciting I can hardly stand it.
