So Rachist

Stories from life and yoga. Reflections on my own. You can survive anything if you keep a sense of humor and live yoga.... I am proof. Anorexia, Bulimia, Drugs, Alcohol, Rape, Abuse, Mental Illness - I have a different sobriety date for each....For some I've had multiple. I never thought I would, but I endorse recovery and sobriety...why? Yoga. I am one grateful and recovering anorexic who happens to be one of the worst addicts I've ever met. Find inspiration that's realistic, here. I'm not an overnight success, not even close.

I was doing yoga and ducks came up. 
Probably cause of my duck t shirt. 

Awesome. 

This is recovery.  And yoga.

Yup. I won the DARE essay contest then I was the first one in rehab. 

Irony at best.

My legs didn’t look like this when I was starving. 

Nicely done, pizza.

When I was starving all the time, I had no energy to think. So when I woke up, I’d ask myself if I wanted to get out of bed - and I didn’t know…. So I didn’t. 

It’s been a very long time since I didn’t want to get right up and start getting things done.  I don’t even ask myself if I want to get up in the morning because I don’t even have to think about it. 

Hang in there.

When I was lost in relapse or a hangover ? Days like today were NOT gonna happen.

This is taking yoga off the mat.
Being sober.
Being actively in anorexia RECOVERY.

This? This is recovery. Healthy. Happy.

Rootin for you, today.

Don’t forget to dance. When I was sick, I couldn’t dance. Now I am not sick and I can.

Anorexia, sucked. I couldn’t dance. Glad that’s over.

Being her, is okay, these days.
