Overcoming Anorexia

"Recovered" is the story of a young woman returning to life after months of treatment, combatting her struggles with anorexia. In the aftermath of her mental and physical healing process, her new task becomes readjusting to the life she knew before, and to the people that she had left behind. It is an honest and unfiltered observation of what it is like to deal with life-changing mental illness, actively pursue recovery, and rediscover the beauty of life. A story about overcoming great challenges, walking away from them stronger, but also learning that struggles are continuous. To be "recovered" comes with quotation marks, because it is not a final state. It is a choice made, to pursue growth, health, and a chance at happiness every day.
