K.J.

I hope you get a lot of emails thanking you for the work and advocacy you do. After I left Milestones, something clicked. It was time to open my eyes and take charge of my own life. Yes, this meant doing\ things that were very uncomfortable. Taking a good look at myself and distancing myself from family for some time, but it forced me to see things more clearly. It taught me to take care of myself. I look back at the person I was when I came to Milestones. I was afraid, terrified to try (or fail), immature, self-centered…self awareness was not my strongest asset!

I have done things I did not think were possible. First and foremost, kicking the eating disorder, falling in love, trusting another human being, becoming a mother, developing friendships and much more.

Nine years ago I never had enough hope to think I would be able to live a “normal” life. I thought I would always be a prisoner of my eating disorder. I am truly blessed and am so grateful to have met the Milestones staff.
