You are rad - you are a survivor! A shining example for us all.
I can’t help but be positive, there are so many encouraging and kind people around me! Each new story I hear makes me glad I admitted to my diseases publicly
I drink about 2-3 cups of tea from the same tea bag, and I recommend dark leafy greens for natural sodium content, especially if you’re asking for sodium in its natural state xx
Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.Saint Francis De sales (via purplebuddhaproject)
I don’t think depression or anything really ever goes away. Eating disorders, anxiety, OCD, anything.
Do you know anyone who is sober? A recovered cocaine addict? A former alcoholic? I know a lot of people who have battled these issues.
What they teach you in AA is that every day is truly a conscious battle. Every day that you are “recovered” is another day that you are fighting to stay on the path and not relapse.
Depression and everything else is extremely similar when you compare them to alcoholism or anything else - recovery does not mean permanence. What it means instead, is that you are doing everything in your power not to go back to your destructive habits; not to let the disease win.
This is my opinion but I hope that helps.

I hope I make really swell pals in Santa Barbara. Like, it would be so cool to finally be part of a group of friends who literally do everything together. I’ve wanted this since high school, and I’m holding onto the notion that “good things come to those who wait.” 😊
