Also so well said Emily...and embarrassed, I can say I know too well about being blinded by the anorexia such that I have missed out on appreciating time with those I love(d) and unfortunately, we cannot rewind and redo life. We only ever have the present and I am fighting my hardest to stay focused and in control because sometimes the mental illnesses - be in anorexia, OCD, anxiety - 'sneak' in and take control of life's steering wheel and before we know it the accident happens with the damage irreversible. I just remind myself that whenever I stand up to anorexia and OCD and stop the 'damage' from happening more then I am ahead and am one step closer to 'full' recovery.
