Hello dolls! I hope the weekend was lovely for you! I'm going to keep this post short...my head is bit everywhere. I was ill all during the end of the week & am still recovering...I feel so drained. But, the worst news of the weekend, was a good friend lost her battle with anorexia. She had battled for so long and was so determined to get better and beat this evil that still seems to plague women and men. There is still a stigma attached to it, that the person wants attention, that they want to do this to themselves...it's wrong. The person does need attention in some way...not only from loved ones, but from themselves!! They need to find the little voice inside that says, 'I love you just the way you are and you're beautiful'. Until we can wipe it out, we have to fight many battles to help.
She was one of the first friends I made when I came to the UK, we took Beauty Therapy together, though spent more time having a laugh than working, but our group of friends kept each other going. Not even weeks ago, she messaged to ask for my number as she said she could do with a friend...and I had been trying to get in touch with her & then I heard the news. My heart breaks. Why do we do this to ourselves!?! Having conquered anorexia and bullemia myself...I knew she could get better and so did everyone that loved her. She will be very missed, such a beautiful person. I hope that you will hug someone close today & extend an ear, a hand, a heart out to those battling this vile problem. I'll be back on Wednesday & visit all your blogs as well. I hope you have a wonderful Monday!!
