New Beginning

Hello to anyone still there!
I started NotesFromtheVoices on Aug. 8, 2009. At that time, I had lost my job, was deep into my eating disorder, depressed and felt loss. Writing this blog was a way to help me find myself and to start the recover process.
I have shared my ups (adventures with son, new jobs and friends) and downs (being hospitalized, getting separated and more.)
For months, I have been trying to figure out what to do with this blog. I can proudly say I am a recovered anorexic. I still have body image issues from time to time but for the most part, I have silenced ED’s voice. Years ago, I would have never posted a picture of me especially one of me swinging. I have come a long way and am finally comfortable in my skin.
With that being said, I thought about moving on and shuttering this blog. I have decided to keep and focus on the other “voices” in my life—books, magazines, decorating, cooking and more.
I  hope it will continue to be a place where I share my life, thoughts and adventures.
And when I don’t have time to update, you can connect with me on Facebook and Instagram. This isn’t good bye but a renewal.
My life was so different when I started. I was fragile and afraid but now I am stronger and fearless!

1.  Being able to spend time with son!
2. Cheese Doodles
3. Being healthy and alive!


  1. Wow, congratulations on your recovery, long may it last! Take care and keep going! Xo
