Blaze is weird. Very weird. She posts things. Sometimes those things are naughty. Sometimes they are nerdy. Sometimes they're both.
It's how she rolls.
Today I had a very long conversation with my mother about my 12 years of disordered eating. I let her know about the 2 years of eating nothing but popcorn, water and lettuce. I told her that, even though I consume food like a typical “healthy” person does, the only thing I can put in my mouth without the desire to be sick or experiencing overwhelming guilt and shame is lettuce/leafy greens.
My mother and I are not particularly open or honest with each other, so it was really surprising when during our conversation this somehow came up. There was no crying or shock or other emotional drama involved. It was just very matter-of-fact. It felt really fucking good to be that honest with her.
