Hello! sorry for being away so long..I have been saying at my parents for the past 4 days because my mom isn't doing so well right now. As some of you may know, she was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago, and they caught it early on, but the treatments are brutal. She has been fainting on and off for the past several days and getting really bad headaches. She's had 6 migraines in the past 3 days! The doctor said this is quite a normal part of her treatment, but I want to be here with her regardless. She wasn't even able to get out of bed at all today, other than to go to the washroom. So I plan on being here for another few days to cook for her and help her out until she's on her feet again :)

In other news, was contacted by my old high school here in Vancouver, my aunt is best friends with the Female Health teacher, and mentioned my blog and my ED (she asked my permission Next week, on Thursday afternoon, they want me to come in and do a lecture on my ED and recovery and also do a Q&A. Ahh, I'm so nervous! I know it's just a class of 13 girls, but still so nervous! they are studying Body Image and Eating Disorders right now. I am so glad to help out though :)

So I'm off to take a nice hot bath, and crawl into my warm, childhood bed :) Sorry for the short post and lack of pics, I am on my parents computer and have no pics here:( I will be updating tomorrow afternoon! I have to do a HUGE grocery shop at Whole Foods, for my parents and for my place.

Have a great night everyone!!

So sorry to hear that your mom's not doing so well right now. Cancer treatment is terrible, but it sounds like you're doing everything you can to help your mom through it. Keep staying strong for her!

And, of course, I am SO proud of you for having the courage to speak in front of the class. You will do AMAZING and I can't wait to hear all about it.
