Today is my Birthday.

by They Call Me Amy

I don’t celebrate my Bday a lot, it’s just another sad day. I can’t feel 100% happy anymore on this date, all I do is cry a little bit, but there are three thing that are worth celebrating.

  1. IΒ am eating well again, almost two years since I’ve won the battle against anorexia.
  2. 6 months without cutting! Yey! Self harm free for half a year, I am so happy because I am not worried anymore about revealing my scars in front of others. Such a huge step.
  3. And 6 months without suicidal thoughts. I didn’t win this battle yet, but I am on the right path of life.

So I don’t wanna celebrate my birthday, I want to celebrate life. I want to celebrate my revival. I want to celebrate the fact I didn’t give up! Don’t give up too, let’s all give life a try together.

πŸ™‚ Those are absolutely wonderful things to celebrate, congratulations!
Even though you’re not past this completely, you’ve still made some huge progress. That’s really encouraging, thanks for sharing. I hope you’ll keep going til this is feeling is just a memory.
Happy Birthday anyway.

I love the idea of finding positive things to celebrate on your birthday. I think I’ll do that on mine. Last year’s wasn’t too bad but I’m back to dreading this one. And those three things are huge – they’re amazing. Thank you for this post (and everything you’ve managed to do). It’s so inspiring. Happy Not Giving Up. πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for the kind words!

Mine is months away, I’m just being gloomy in advance, haha. I’m hoping by the time my birthday comes around I might have built up a few more things to celebrate, but either way I’ll definitely make a list. I hope you had a nice day, Amy. πŸ™‚ Thanks again for the post.

Why is it that everyone thinks because I choses to exit on my own TERMS it is giving up? or it makes me a COWARD? well there is a plan of death for everyone and noone knows how or when it will happen, perhaps this is the HOW and tonight is the WHEN!!!!!

today is a important day for me, why showing your negativity? I am not talking about you, and I am not saying you are a coward. If you can’t interpret what I am saying, then try again instead of saying twisted things.

Happy Life, Amy! Beating anorexia is huge. Keep taking those life affirming steps and leave a trail of breadcrumbs for others to follow.
