Your art signifies much more than you have identified. Without reaching the core and safety concerns, you will continue in the helplessness with only short periods of healing and hope. I pray you can build a support system of clinicians and friends who will fight for truth and your freedom.

It helps the fact that you also get to see what your feeling. But in a different ways. Not by the pictures of your wrist. But by paper. Life with an eating disorder sucks and even though I ve been to treatment I’ve never been worse. Just the one thing you have to remember is that you are amazing and strong and that you do deserve to be healthy and to love yourself. TRUST ME! We will all see it sooner or later. Don’t give up. please..

Art has helped my process so many of the intense emotions I’ve gone through (and go through) as my feelings are recognized and felt without behaviors. What a courageous story and images to share – thank you for posting this.

I have also used art to help me with my eating disorder. Check out my website and go to gallery starting on the second page and you can see my works that I did about my anorexia for an art show.

I am so glad to hear that your are in a better place both within yourself and in your world. My own sister has been struggling with eating disorders for many years now, and it’s been a big struggle for her, for us (her family and friends), and for the many therapists that are aiding her long recovery. A big facet in her recovery process has been like yours: art. She draws, colors, and writes journal after journal, attempting to put her own confusing and shifting thoughts and feelings into perspective both for herself and for others with whom she wishes to share.
Anyhow, it’s amazing that others have so many similarities to her, and I will definitely point her to your work, and this website, when she is able (she is in an inpatient therapy at this time). I think it is really key to know you are not alone in how you feel, and in how you cope. A major boost for her lately has been this stamp contest sponsored by Canada Post promoting mental health. She submitted one of her drawings, and is currently ranked first in the contest! I would like to share her entry in case any are interested, and please feel free to vote for her, an insider talking about something she knows deeply:
Thanks for your lovely story!

I am writing on behalf of The Healing Muse, a literary magazine at SUNY Upstate Medical University’s Center for Bioethics and Humanities. The Healing Muse is a publication in which writers and artists share their personal healing- and health-related work.

One of the Muse’s stories that might be of interest to the writer or to those who have read this post is “Disappearing Act” by Kayleen Wilkinson. Kayleen’s story details her struggle with anorexia and her incredible recovery. It is available online at http://www.upstate.edu/bioethics/thehealingmuse/09_muse/09_wilkinson_disappearingact.php. It is well worth a read!

In addition to that, The Healing Muse accepts short entries (under 500 words) for our blog, http://thehealingmusecafe.blogspot.com/. If you have something that would be of interest to us, we would love to have you submit. We hope all of you wonderful supporters of art therapy will check it out!

It’s amazing what art can do for a person when the words can’t or don’t want to come. Congrats to Sarah and best of luck in all of her many future accomplishments in life!

Art has helped me process my own issues in so many ways. Spread the word.

Thank you so much Sarah for sharing. I’m about to graduate with a Masters Degree in Art Therapy and when I read your story it re-emphasized the power of the artistic process as a means to heal our open wounds, and guide us to our true self discovery. I know that your own passion to overcome this disorder is felt in your artwork and I know that you will inspire many more people with your personal story. Thank you for your authenticity.

Keep Creating 🙂
