Yes, There is More to Me Than My Illness

As I was scrolling through all my old posts the other day I realized that my blog is somewhat, well, depressing.

I talk a lot about my struggles and the ways in which they impact my life.

And to be quite honest, I’m tired of being labeled as “the girl with the problems.”

There is so much more to my being than my eating disorder, anxiety, and depression.

I am a caring individual who enjoys cooking and doing art projects, values relationships and is considered a hard worker.

But many of you know me as “the girl who struggles.”

While my troubles are part of who I am, there is so much more to me than just that. I want you all to get to know that side of me as well. I want my readers to understand all sides of my life, not just the difficult ones.

So with that, I have decided to change the focus of my blog ever so slighlty.

To those of you who can relate to my struggles, do not worry. My mental health experiences are not going anywhere.

I am simply going to encorporate the other aspects of my life into this blog, sharing more than just during my Month in Review(s).

I have also discovered my love for video editing, so I’ve branched out to Youtube as well. I will be setting up my channel over the next view days and sharing my FIRST ever video with you all.

I’m so excited and hope you are as well.

With that, I would love to hear what you all are thinking. Are you looking forward to this change? Not so thrilled?

Whatever it is, let me know in the comments below.

I’m also interested in your feedback and suggestions. If there are certain aspects to my life that I have not shared, or you are particularly interested in learning more about, shoot me an email or leave a comment.

While the look will stay the same, I will be releasing a bunch of new content soon. Make sure to tell ALL your friends and be on the lookout for the new, and improved, Biting Back.

  1. Hey girl! I just started following your blog and I absolutely love it.

    I too am sick of being the girl who struggles. I think sometimes our illness can convince us also that we are only the sum of our disease. We live by titles in our head such being “anorexic” or being “bulimic” or anything else really. These are affirmations that start as simple beliefs and soon true to truths the more we repeat them. I am excited for you to incorporate the different parts of you into this blog since that challenges the affirmations people (and yourself!!!) have about being only your disorder. Best of luck and btw you’re beautiful!! xx with love, Carly
