In the interest of getting better, as opposed to relapsing, I just broke my anonymity with my counselor, K, at my substance abuse treatment center (If you’re reading this, “Hi, K!”). Anyway, exposing myself like this is basically an effort to stave off relapse. The idea being that, armed with the (brutal?) honesty I typically lay down on this blog, K and I will have a better idea of what drives my addiction, eating disorder, self-harm, etc.
I’m trusting him to be discrete with this information and not blab it to the world. K, I hope you respect this boundary.
