I struggling with what this disease has done to my body. I wish I could photograph myself from any angel, but this is unfortunately not the case. I use to be active, hike, dance, walk. Now I am lucky if I can do a 30 minute walk a day. I can no longer fit into anything I wore before I became ill. I guess the most difficult part of coming to terms with ‘my body’ is how I am judged. Just walking down the street the stares and comments. It is unfortunate to be viewed as someone who doesn’t respect themselves or their bodies because of their weight. Just because someone is overweight it does NOT mean they sit on the couch and watch reality tv all day long while eating bonbons. Disease causes the body to fail.
I wanted to capture myself in a feminine and positive light, focusing on my intent to get well, to return to whom I used to be. If we wish and will something hard enough, it can come into being♥
