I have suffered from anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember, but I have only just sought help. I have borderline anorexia and I am a recovering self-harmer.

Each day is a new battle and a new beginning. I know how hard all of this is, but I keep fighting for those I love most. And that is what gets me by, fighting for someone else.

If you have these problems, please seek help, I know it’s terrifying but the relief after is so amazing! If you suffer from urges, doing small things like curling hair, doing makeup, walking, writing a letter to yourself describing what is wrong, and stuff like this works. But you need to find what works for you.

Above all, stay strong. If today is your worst day, then tomorrow will be better!”
