I have had body issues all my life. I am a recovering anorexic with a thigh gap and a pierced clitoris. With lots of counseling, I am finally starting to embrace my body as it is. I do still have days when things are difficult and I am disgusted by what I see in the mirror. Thankfully that is less often than before. I am hoping that sharing my picture will be a big step in my journey towards self-acceptance.
Thank you for sharing your story.
I am so glad to hear that you are becoming more accepting of your body and are making such amazing progress in embracing your body as it is.
I am also happy to hear that you were brave enough to seek professional help. Far too many women live with their struggles instead of seeking help and overcoming them.
