My name is Hayley Axel. I’m a curvy, mixed race woman, and I have an eating disorder and bipolar disorder. I’ve struggled with these disorders undiagnosed for as long as I can remember. I started this blog because it helps me to write out my experiences. In recovery, it’s also helped me to hear the stories of others with similar experiences. I’m learning everyday in the hopes of getting better. I’ve been in recovery now for almost a year, and a lot has changed in that time. I know things are getting better, and I’m excited for more to come.
