emmperormaiden I'm still crying as I post this picture, to the point where even my waterproof mascara is smearing. I have never had someone as loyal, supportive, understanding, and non-judge mental in my life. You're not just my best friend- you are my rock (and a rock for so many others as well). Thank you for giving me this last perfect afternoon together. I would say I love you, but that simply doesn't sum up my feelings correctly. See you in December, Mustang Mason 1mon

emmperormaiden July 17, 2013: the day of my diagnosis, the day I was admitted to the hospital, the day that marked the beginning of the worst and yet most eye-opening year of my life. There is nothing I can think of that could ever compare to the hell me and my family went through. We cried, we screamed, but we stuck together until the bitter (and on-going) end. No, this is not a pity post. I want to put the pain and the sufferance behind me. This is about the present. How today I can look back at myself exactly a year ago and see that change and recovery is possible. A lot of people have asked me why I'm so open about my struggles. Many think it's for the compliments, the support, the compassion. Not even remotely true. I talk and write about my disorder because I don't ever want to see another young man or woman go through what I did. By shoving it under the rug and pretending it didn't happen, I'm not spreading awareness. Change does not come from silence.

Although everyday is a battle, and it will be for a while, I can proudly say that I am nowhere near the person I was a year ago, both physically and mentally. I am happy. I love life. I love ice cream But what I love the most are the people who stayed by me, no matter how much of a burden I was, to help me be the Emma I am today.

emmperormaiden Walk out of my apartment every morning to the cafe around the corner. Try not to trip on the cobblestone paths that wind around the castle walls. After you pick up your baguette for a 2 pm lunch, bike through vineyards and meet me on one of the island's many beaches. Although you won't hear form me for a while because wifi is non-existent (I just found a random connection), I'll be right here. And might not leave. 2mon

emmperormaiden I could post a stereotypical picture of me in France but I am so fed up with Paris and its "not my problem" way of life that I'd rather post what truly makes me happy right now: my slice of Moroccan life in the heart of Ouistreham #safe #sanctuary 2mon
