Chronic Lyme Disease treatments aren’t covered by any form of insurance. I rely on donor support through my GoFundMe campaign to help me afford my healing. The good news is crowdfunding has helped me a lot. The bad news is it’s basically medical panhandling.

I love that this recipes calls for “ripe but firm” peaches. In my experience, perfectly ripe peaches don’t look so perfect upon getting home!

1st-bodylove-comicLife’s funny like that isn’t it?

2nd-comic-bodyloveYeah…not so helpful actually.

2nd-BodyLove-ComicIt’s taken me years to change my relationship to food. Now, instead of seeing food (or a lack of it) as a means to an end, I see eating as an act of self love.

Living with chronic illness is hard. It just is. And some days its harder than others. Having acceptance may not change the situation, but often it changes how we respond to it.

When I admit that my capacity for whole-hearted love is compromised, I speak to my experience in an honest and direct way. Doing so creates an environment of vulnerability that encourages connection.

Yup, this happened. What matters is that I choose to NOT internalized any food shame, forgave myself, and got right back on track with healing self care. My mantra in these moments: I am perfectly imperfect.
