7th July 2020
The last year has been a very difficult year. I lost my Mum in November, and it was all very sudden. I really did not cope at all and had a bad relapse, because everything got on top of me. Not only did I lose my Mum, but I had to move house, as I lived with my Mum in her rented house, and this added to the relapse. I wasn’t coping with my emotions at all.
Eight months after my Mum’s death, I am not 100% there yet, but I am coping a bit better. I have little blips now and then. I am being creative and doing a lot of self-care. I am also opening up a bit more too, and even talking more in The Road Less Travelled therapy group at SEED, and putting my emotions in a post in the SEED Facebook group.
I still really miss my Mum, but she would want me to get better. I’m gonna fight to recovery and I won’t be beaten by this ED!
