I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Snacking Beauty

Cottage cheese with almonds and canned mixed fruit, including cherries. I just thought the colors were so beautiful that I had to share!

The snack was so easy and so yummy and yet a few years ago, eating this would have given me a panic attack, as nuts used to be one of my supreme fear foods. People would try to tell me about how nuts have "good fat" and about how healthy they are, but my eating disorder would not let me listen! To be in "control," I had to stick to my own rules, no matter how irrational. Thank Godde, I can eat foods like this without stressing out, for even though I now acknowledge that I have little control in life, I am much, much happier!
