My recovery was not only from my eating disorder but all the things under the surface which I wasn't so clearly aware of which led to anorexia and bulimia in the first place. Just tackling the eating issue without the mess beneath it never worked!
I miss the girl that made everyone happy and didn't self-harm, wasn't suicidal. I miss the girl that had tons of friends. I miss the girl that didn't need cheering up because she was always happy. I miss the girl who used to be me.
