I took a picture of my serving of cheesecake last year as the day program was celebrating #NationalCheesecakeDay.
Shortly after, due to a multitude of factors, I experienced an intense meltdown because I was Unable to regognize the signs and take care of myself earlier.
It was what started the process of learning and growing and discovering more of who I was and what I need to do to stay well. I also realized what skills I needed to hone in on to properly manage myself in situations that I have no control over or may find unpleasant.
A year later, I can honestly say that I am in a much better spot than I was back then and that I have learned, grew and am continuing the lifelong process of recovery knowing that it is possible, probable and likely!
