>ずといきって- Live on Forever

>I know there are people in the world who don’t believe that Anorexia Nervosa is a real disease and that it isn’t as serious as others. I am not going to post up statistics proving that wrong, even though in my heart I know that it is. That is not the point; it is not what matters. What matters is that those of you out there suffering with it know that it is real and that it is serious; that those of you out there don’t let people that think that way make you feel worse about yourself. It may not be similar to things like cancer and heart disease and spinocerebellum degeneration disease, but it is equally as dangerous. Anorexia takes over your life until you have nothing left, not even yourself. You have to live on. You have to get better, find yourself, and live on. Easier said than done, but once it is done, you feel so much better.
I am nearing the end of my treatment as an Anorexia patient, and for the first time in years I can smile and laugh sincerely. I can feel my heart beating and know that I am truly alive. I don’t feel empty anymore. I know that recovery isn’t easy, but it is worth trying. I have the will, the want to live on and be alive. That’s all that matters now is just to live and be happy. My weight isn’t a chain dragging me down anymore and food doesn’t scare me so much. From now on I am going to live on and be myself. I am going to be true to who I am and not let anything hold me back. I ask the same of all of you. Be true to who you are, and you are not your disease. Even if you are suffering with something other than Anorexia Nervosa, know that all that matters, even if you can never be cured, is that you be who you are and live on. Even when we are all gone we will continue to live on in the lives of those that we touched when we were alive ourselves.
“ずといきって” Live on forever.
