Intro to my Life
Hey there! My name is Emeillia, and I’m 16 years old. While growing up I was a competitive horseback rider. I put a great amount of pressure on myself, and I’ve been unhappy with my body for as long as I can remember. I began embarking on a fitness journey as a way to cope, but my efforts quickly escalated. At the age of 13, I began developing an eating disorder known as Anorexia Nervosa.
Developing an Eating Disorder
I tried to recover serval times, but I never actually wanted to. In the fall of 2020, I fell into my worst relapse yet, and I became very ill. I gave up on myself and decided that I would let this illness take my life. Eventually, I was forced into recovery.
Now I’m four months into recovery, and despite the challenges, I’m the happiest I’ve been in years. I’ve been riding again, and I have dreams of becoming a professional horse trainer. I’ve learned that you can’t recover for someone else, you have to do it for yourself. My story is proof that recovery is possible, and that it’s beyond worth it.💗
