Today (well, i guess it would be yesterday since it’s after midnight) is my 5 month anniversary of not injuring!
This is the longest I’ve ever gone without it and that freaks me out. I was close to giving in like a million times but didn’t. It wasn’t easy, I will admit that.
I don’t really know how I feel about going so long…it’s kind of weird. I didn’t tell anyone today. None of my friends or family. I sort of just celebrated in my head. I was really happy today and just had a chill kind of day.
A year ago I was barely able to go a day or a week without injuring…now I’ve gone 5 months. I’d say that’s a miracle. I’ve fallen a lot but I always get back up. God has helped me so much along the way. I don’t know if or when I will relapse, but I am just happy to have made it this far.
Recovery is a process, not an event. It is possible for things to get better! You will have low moments, but it’s so worth it to resist the urge and to be proud of yourself the next day instead of ashamed.
Stay Strong <3
