Im going to have my second anniversary this August 24th. I have mixed feelings for it.
I cannot discount the fact that I felt really bad then because of my ignorance and my hard headedness…I displayed the classic symptoms but I refused to accept since I didnt have the “stereotyped” characteristics. I felt bad because I made my family worry about me. I felt bad because there are restrictions set forth, disciplines I have to follow, control I have to implement, perhaps for the rest of my life. And yet there were so many rewards too that I have to celebrate. I learn to value life and living, I learned so much about my body and its functions and limitations. I learned the importance of healthy food and exercising. I learned to value my family more and appreciate beauty around me, And, I woudnt have found this site and the wonderful people here!
Hmmm…Maybe I should do something special on the 24th.
Best wishes to you Emily.
