When I was 16 I developed an eating disorder (anorexia). I also struggled with depression and self-harm issues. The last 4 years I’ve been in several (clinical) treatments. I am still not there yet, but I am further along the road to recovery than ever.

Yesterday something happened to me which made me think (and stress) a lot. It was such a small thing, but it was like a bomb hit me.

Now, I’m writing a message to the guys who fat-shamed me.

This is me (20)

Although I still don’t have a healthy weight, I am so much happier now. I am going to own my size. I hope one day I can mean something to the world. I hope by then, they have seen and read this article and learned from it.
