One Girl's ED Recovery Journey

Hi, my name is CJ and I am a 21 year old nursing student currently in recovery from anorexia and bulimia. No shrink, just me and the good old Man upstairs! I was diagnosed with ADD about 6 months ago, but with a little elbow grease and medication, I am making it work for me. I live life day by day, moment by moment trying to find inspiration in even minute things. It somehow cements my belief that everything happens for a reason. If you want to know more, just ask.

I’m not sure what it is, but for the past few months there are always just clumps of hair coming out in the shower. I’m not sure if it was the shampoo/conditioner I was using or what…or maybe I wasn’t getting enough vitamins/minerals/fats.

I have 3b hair. Curly and wavy, think Keri Russell in “Felicity”. It’s grown a lot over the past few months, but the hair fall is just plain frightening and annoying. I stopped using the keratin infused smoothing conditioner by Suave and bought some of the Garnier Fall Fight Conditioner today. I don’t think I am going to wash it anymore, just co-wash with the occasional clarifying shampoo.

The Garner cond. is working after one use surprisingly. I didn’t have anywhere near the amt of hair shed that I usually have. I’d say it was about only 1/2 of the usual amt after just one use! Crrrazy. I also bought some Biotin + Keratin vitamins today from Walmart. It’s like 10000mcg with 100mg of keratin. I think using keratin internally will benefit me more. I bought Hairever II from the Vitamin Shoppe. Guess we’ll see how that goes too! Also, changed up my usual Dark&Lovely 10in1 gelee to Cantu shea butter natural hair curling custard. I’m liking all of the products so far! OHH! and I changed my pillowcase to a satin one. 

I’ve switched up my diet to include more protein and green veggies with fats here and there, specifically whole hard-boiled eggs and salmon and broccoli.

Hopefully these products will increase my hair growth and decrease my shedding. :/

Good luck to me,

I’m so done. Done with recovery. Done with trying. I hate food. I hate that my thighs touch, the second glances people give me because I’ve gained weight. I hate how soft I feel. I hate it. Fuck this. I’m so done with binges and eating for no reason. It makes no fucking sense. Fuck this.
