Recovery Record has built an amazing app that has a big positive impact on recovery. Now they need a spokesperson to help reach the millions of people it could really help!

From Self-harm to the Beauty of Progression

The difference between my experience with Tumblr now and Tumblr 3 years ago…

3 years ago, I would go on Tumblr to reinforce ED.

3 years ago, I would go on Tumblr to look at images of thin girls.

3 years ago, I would go on Tumblr to read about eating disorders.

3 years ago, I would go on Tumblr to dissociate. To stop reality.

3 years ago, I would go on Tumblr to motivate ED. 

3 years ago, I would go on Tumblr to make myself feel worthy.

3 years ago, I went on Tumblr to escape.

3 years ago, I felt insecure, mental, and fake. 

3 years ago, I was confused, hurt, and broken. 

3 years ago, I was not my true self. 

3 years ago, I believed in ED. 

Today, I no longer follow the people I used to.

Today, I go on Tumblr for reassurance that recovery is possible.

Today, I go on Tumblr to share photos of my hedgehog.

Today, I go on Tumblr to look at photos of hedgehogs.

Today, I don’t need Tumblr the way I used to. 

Today, I live in reality. 

Today, I am worthy of everything. 

Today, I am loved.

Today, I love myself.

Today, I am healthy.

Today, I am stronger than ED. 

Today, ED is a voice that I ignore and no longer need.

Today, I can tell myself that I do need ED and I know it’s true.

Today, I am in a good place, mentally and physically.

Today, I am stable.

Today, I am almost whole. 

Today, I am a person.

Today, I believe in myself. 

Today, I know that my progress is worth something and that it will only get better. 

Today, I am moving forward. 

Today, I am beautiful, smart, happy, deserving, fun, unique, wanted and worthy. 

Tomorrow will be so much more. My life is desirable and filled with love, compassion, joy and hope. 

Recovery is possible.
