Hello, it has been some time since I last posted and came on site, apologies for this however, I have been very unwell after many relapses with my physical health and this affecting my mental state. You all gave me such great support and fingers crossed I am now back in action....?
After a horrendous accident in Nov it is a year on since. I wanted to write an update, of which I am very pleased with myself rightly so. I had an appointment with my consultant who showed me x-rays from last year and compared to now. It is amazing how the body works and can repair itself with care and help. Without this I do not think, correction Without this I know I would not be in the good physical health I am today. The x-rays showed how I had snapped my hip and the pelvis and this does not even go into the other injuries I incurred but, a year on my bones have healed except one on the spine but this could take some time. I am just left with soft tissue/muscle repairs to complete. I could have died, I didn't. I could of been left with one leg shorter, I haven't. I could be left in wheelchair, I am not. I remain on crutches but seeing the before and after makes me realise that all of the care given to me and my determination to accept this, despite many a set back with food and my anorexia, I have helped to repair my body. It really is amazing.
I know how hard the road to recovery is, believe me I have so many set backs but trying to keep this in mind I really do need to look after my body it is my vessel to try and fly through life. I am not sure if this is any help to anyone but I just wanted to write some good news up. God only knows that I really haven't hasd any good news for a very long time. This has given my some drive back to keep going. I was saved for a reason and it has taken a long time to even see this despite good friends telling me.
Life really is very precious and I want to try and help anyone suffering because I really do understand and if only the health professionals did in such a way. Please, I would not ask anyone to endure an eating disorder just to understand but when we need help it is those who do understand that can help us. Sorry for droning on. I am done for now. Love to you all and there IS HOPE FOR ALL OF US. xxx
