Labels and codes do not tell you of my strength, my compassionate nature, and the creativity that makes me whole. Labels don't tell you of the courage of a young woman who left Australia on a one-way ticket to travel the world, determined to live and make her parents proud despite her ailments. Nor do they tell you about a successful TV actor, business owner, loving mother, and wife. They also leave out the crappy parts that I deal with on a daily basis and how, after a hard day, I will put my head on the pillow and feel like a courageous, strong warrior. From Robyn Cruze, National Recovery Advocate and online community manager for Eating Recovery Center.
