My name is Kate and I am twenty-six years old. My blog has now been in existence since April of 2011. I had returned home from eating disorder treatment in February of that year and was looking for an outlet and a place to organize my emotions. Out of that came fightingmywayback. The title comes from something I wrote in my journal near my final days of treatment – “It may have been the day my world fell apart but it was also the day I began to fight my way back. Maybe, just maybe that’s one small reason it happened.”. This belief is what set me on the path to recovery from my eating disorder and ultimately my trauma. I am now in recovery from my eating disorder but struggle everyday with trauma. Because of this I am accompanied by a service dog in training, named Gus. I continue to fight my way through my trauma and eating disorder. I have set backs and triumphs and this blog chronicles them all. I leave some things out because of my privacy and the privacy of others but I think that this blog gives a pretty accurate picture of my journey. And so I invite you to accompany me on it.
