Just a heads up, “we-are-anti-thinspo” is now “recovering-surviving”. There are lots of reasons for the url change, I’ve had this blog since 2011 and my thoughts and feelings towards health and recovery is constantly changing and growing. I was hesitant at first to change my url because I know people associate the name with my blog and I didn’t want to confuse anyone but I’ve decided to bite the bullet and go for it. You see “we-are-anti-thinspo” was feeling rather out of date. My blog has always been about accepting recovery at what ever stage of the process and I’ve always felt the url hasn’t quite matched the content. I’ve faced opposition from people who’ve read the url and jumped to the conclusion I’m some unsympathetic anti-thinspo vigilante! Not at all, I understand how difficult it is to walk away from damaging websites and blogs, I have been there myself.
I feel “recovering-surviving” is more appropriate. We are all learning and discovering new ways to cope, I really hope this blog can help people along the way. Since starting this blog, I’ve fluctuated between recovered and recovering, I don’t think I’ll ever feel one or the other however I do feel I’m surviving this. I’ve got methods and help in place to assure I don’t ever get lost down that dark hole again and I want this blog to reflect that.
So there will be some small changes here and there, namely in the descriptions and links etc. (I haven’t rewritten them since 2011/12!) keep a look out and I hope you find everything useful!
Lots of love,
