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, 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.

This is better than hungover.

Anorexia

Telling an anorexic to “just eat” is like telling a blacked out drunk, to JUST “be sober”.

Just, no.

I got your back, Ana. I know it takes time.

This is recovery.

I used to get drunk when I was mad. 
Now I burn sage and get grateful my anger, never wins.

Last time I did this obstacle course and climbed a water tower, I was drunk.  Years ago. 

This was different.

He takes pictures of me and texts em from across the room.  They say “you make me believe in magic.”

Confused

If you didn’t like me “addicted” and I became the opposite of that damn list and you STILL tell me I got it wrong?

Damn it! Whose crazy, again?

Weirdos.

Addicts

Addicts are the most open minded people, I’ve ever met. With the biggest hearts. Find an addict, who didn’t start using, because of pain….

Watch your judgements.

Support recovery.

Belief.

I believe, as bad as things get, you deserve to get better.

Recovery, starts at the bottom. That means YOU start, at the bottom.

You can do this.
