Question 26: How do you feel about your scars and past mistakes?
I’ve learnt so much from them but if I were to sit down and really think over the past 4 years, I would cry incessantly.
Question 27: What is the most affected part of your body due to self harm? How does it make you feel?
Probably my stomach. I [used to] do so much to numb the pain in terms of alcohol and any pills containing paracetamol to cover up the hunger pains, because I don’t eat when I’m stressed, anxious, worried or sad.
Question 28: Why is recovery important to you?
Honestly, I am not brave enough to end it all for real. So, if I’m going to do this living thing, I might as well live my best life. My journey to [some semblance of] recovery so far has helped me become a more positive person (except when it comes to love, obviously). And all I really want is to shine through the dark cloud.
