Celebrating six years is a huge success. Though my time at Rosewood was extremely painful for me emotionally and physically, I regained the man that I never thought I could be. My eating disorder was my salvation and my very best friend. ED gave me the power of fully numbing myself and all that was around me. My eating disorder robbed me of 23 years of my life. Since 2010 I have learned communication, self-love, respect for my body & knowing that I am perfectly imperfect. My new life is stable. I am ground and my faith has prevailed me through more tragic events that only knowing my tools I learned from Rosewood allowed me to be me in the moment and allowing myself to feel. Recovery is my life motto. I know that no road is easy, however I am okay. I am okay with being me, I have healed & I choose recovery.
