Last night, I attended an Election Day party at my friend’s house. Some people there were Democrats, some Republicans, and some neither. Even though we had our differences, one thing was for sure: We were all together witnessing an event that will go down in the history books. If I ever decide to have kids, the 2008 Presidential Election will be something that I will tell them about. Thanks to being recovered, I will be able to talk about the event in an authentic, real way.
Sadly, I can’t remember much about other historical events that I have lived through. I was so sick with my eating disorder that I was not truly present in this world. I was trapped inside of my head with all of my troubles (real and make-believe) and my eating disorder. I do not remember many specifics during that time, because my brain was not functioning properly. To me, it feels like my eating disorder erased entire sections of my life from my mind. But not anymore!
I am truly alive today on November 5, 2008. Are you?
