Anorexia, Bulimia, binge eating disorder and any other eating disorders that are being diagnosed right now… it’s truly terrible that they exist and that beautiful people all around the world are ashamed of their own bodies.
I have to admit, I’m a bit of a hypocrite in that sense. It’s something I’m working on… I have numerous body issues of my own, and I guess I could say I have a minor problem with overeating… The thing is, I’m aware that there’s people to talk to.
So to all those lovely people out there who are suffering, you should all know you’re not alone. There’s people like you suffering, and there’s millions who are there to help. We love you just the way you are… and for your knowledge, it’s ok to have curves or a bit of puppy fat. It’s something perfectly fine! :]
Can you guess the link between the three words above?
No, I wasn’t ill in the snow whilst skiing down a mountain… too literal.
Yesterday I got back from three days in southern Germany staying at my second host family’s winter apartment. From there we could take the fifteen minute drive each day across the border into various Austrian ski resorts. One I remember distinctly was in Unken, simply because I didn’t actually go skiing… Two evenings before I became incredibly sick… here comes the graphic description kiddos. ;]
Lots of vomiting to the point of being physically drained… I ended up in complete pain with a serious stomach ache, head ache and a lack of food in my belly… I couldn’t eat for the next 24 hours. I was bed ridden… and it sucked.
The next day however I felt a bit better, and fit enough at least to go outside and get some fresh air. So I went with my host family to ski area Almenwelt Lofer, and instead of skiing, spent a few hours wandering the mountains and getting lost, then later wandering the cute little Austrian town down below.
I’m happy to say I’m now a lot better. Thank the heavens for pain medicine… it made my agony bearable. I’m also happy to announce that the photos aren’t too bad… although the shotty weather didn’t help my little digital camera much… :p
Wishing all the vomiters a fun trip back to recovery.
