Dug Out My Scrapbook

I just dug out my scrapbook from Remuda to take with me when I move onto campus. I seriously think I have something wrong with me lol. First I write that super emotional blog and now I am looking through all the pictures I took when I was there and I am missing all the wonderful (and the not-so-wonderful) people I met there. Whenever I see this picture it  brings a smile to my face. One day a woman who was in a wheelchair was giving us “disability awareness” which meant that we basically goofed around on her extra wheelchair for as long as we could without being caught by the nurses. We had a little obstacle course to go around and I learned how to pop a wheelie, which I am doing in that picture in case you can’t tell. I will always cherish this scrapbook and I will make sure to pull it out whenever I’m feeling sad to remind myself of the wonderful people I have in my life and also how I absolutely do not want to go back to treatment.

  1. …is messing around with the extra wheelchairs some sort of unspoken anorexia treatment ritual?! or are we both just strange? 😉

    I’m glad you don’t want to go back–too many of us idealize the time we were in treatment, and it’s important to remember that we don’t really want to be back there. Do you still stay in touch with your Remuda friends, or do you think doing so would be triggering?

      It’s definitely not strange at all to mess around with wheelchairs, it’s so much fun!
      But I do keep in touch with most of the people from Remuda, one of them is one of my best friends and we visit each other pretty often which is awesome. I don’t really find it triggering because it’s so nice to have someone to talk to who knows and can empathize with what I am going through. As wonderful as my friends at home are with helping me with this, I know it’s really hard for them to understand what’s going on with this whole situation. It’s really nice to have someone to talk to any time of the day when I am unable to get in touch with my therapists.

Talk to me!
