That first day at that ANAD support group was the beginning of what would be the first time in my life I had actually put effort into my own recovery.


And I looked at everyone out in that crowd and I just was so overwhelmed by how beautiful they were; and in that same second, my heart broke, because I realized they couldn't see how beautiful they were.

It was in my first ANAD meeting, one cold night, I finally opened up and realized something might be wrong with me. That's where it all began.
