Happy Birthday!

Despite not wanting to celebrate my Birthday at all, I have actually had a lovely day. I woke up and was truly overwhelmed with the amount of cards, gifts and messages people had sent me! I saw one of my closest friends for coffee - Mocha Cortardo actually ;) and then went shopping with her and then my family.
I have been treated to some lovely gifts, including the most beautiful friendship bracelet, Pandora ring and charm :-)

I then decided I would bake brownies and they were delicious! I did think that my baking skills may have some what suffered but hey, I've still got it! Can't say the same for the presentation though! Anorexia was not going to ruin another Birthday for me and it hasn't because I have also enjoyed a lovely meal out too. 
I have decided that this is age to fully recover. No if's or buts - I don't want to enter my twenties still battling an eating disorder. I have been stuck for long enough. It's time to take the plunge, gain the final few kilos and LIVE my life. What am I clinging on to? Fatigue, coldness, numbers? They aren't what I call achievements, people don't like me for these things etc etc. And I say this now with a positive outlook, and sure it won't last, and sure it takes time. Well, the sooner I take a bite of this bitter lemon, the better because the more time I devote to this illness, the less time I spend living.
And just quickly, thank you to those who have sent me a card, gift, message, tweet! It really does mean so much to me.
