Sucks when you can't live down a bad reputation. I know that I used to be this really sick and really difficult person to work with, back when the anorexia had a hold of me. But now, I can honestly say I've changed. I've maintained a healthy weight for over a year now, and I follow recommendations from my treatment team and really I'm quite amiable and pleasant to work with. I am NOT an obstinate brat anymore. I have changed so much, and honestly, I'd give ANYTHING for an eating disorder therapist (just one!) in the state of Utah to NOT know my name and have some nasty and old and tired pre-concieved notions of me.
I've changed, but do people even see that?
So, for those of you that think you know me, but don't? Either give yourself a chance to know the real me, and stop judging, or get the hell away from me. I mean it.
Okay. Vent over.
