Throughout my recovery, I have found that looking back at old photos can cause a mix of emotions. I find it difficult to view images that were taken after September 2014, and that is because you can see a very clear deterioration in my health. However, any taken before that period in my life are motivating, and I aspire to get back to how I was at that time; healthy and content. I know that my mental health was not great for a quite a while before September 2014, although, it had not yet got to the point where it was completely taking over my life. 

I wanted to add a variety of images to my blog, not only to remind me of times when I was happy, confident and comfortable; but also to remind me of just how much this illness stripped me of. Some of these photos are quite shocking, and to be honest, I do not even recognise myself in some of them during 2015. I just want to point out that these images are not meant to upset anybody or be used in a negative way. I wanted to show how the illness can grasp hold of you in such a short space of time, seemingly out of the blue, but then show a progression to how I am now forcing it to release me from its life threatening hold.
