A disorder that made me lose everything, from my body to my mind, my goals, my dreams, my friends, my boyfriend, part of my family… I had nothing, not even myself! All I gained was: lots of doctor’s appointments, irrealistic fears, depression, anxiety, illnesses, hospitalizations, suicidal and self-harm behaviors… Life was pure hell and nothing seemed to work.

I’m fighting for myself, my goals, my dreams, and my future, while hoping you’re doing the same!

Get on this journey with me…
