We all need community.
community allows us to experience belonging and connection. it provides support, relatability and accountability.
when you struggle with an eating disorder you experience the world alone. eating disorders thrive in isolation. recovery, therefore, requires connection.
connect with me - and all the other women along their journey - in group therapy every tuesday in november, 630-8pm, at the @kylafoxcentre.
register today!!! email info@kylafoxcentre. com to reserve your spot.
because you are not alone.

I’ve been taking some time off social media this past week. i’ve needed to be reflective.
quieter.
more introspective.
a lot is changing for me this season - what i want, how i am differently channeling my energy, letting go of a lot of things and restructuring my work and my life.
i feel scared.
really scared.
and so this feels right.
fear is only temporary.
so i’m moving in.
who out there is changing things up? shifting gears?? do tell.

My relationship with my mother has taken on many forms.
like many mother-daughter dynamics, my mom and i have struggled with closeness and connection; we’ve also been deeply close and deeply connected. our relationship has grown and changed - it has been messy and painful, full of healing and of grace.
i love my mother.
together we define what is continual hard work, the possibility of renewal and ultimate love in a relationship.

For most of my life i’ve let my health rule me - having an eating disorder for so many years robbed me of a lot of time.
when i became a mother, i was confronted with a lens into my mortality in a whole new way - namely, wanting to be around as long as possible to watch my daughters grow. this fear has been translated so that now even when my kids get sick, i feel immediately panicked. i am triggered (and traumatized, i know) from being so ill, whereby i equate sickness to mean death.
as i approach my 40s (what?!!😳), i’m confronted with women i know and love discovering they have cancer. so today, instead of being ruled by my health, i’m ruling my health. i’m getting a full work up - the whole shabang - head to toe. i’m going rule out what i can in order to not live in fear. i’m owning it.

It’s only 830am.
the day has already felt so loooooong.
kids up before 6am.
getting breakfast ready.
managing the emotions about not getting the breakfast they want. tears about wanting something different.
trying to keep my cool - breathe through. breakfast over. 630am. clean up. time to get dressed.
managing their emotions about not having the “right clothes” (shifting into new seasons, new attire, is always a bit of a tricky transition in our home). 7am - finally settle on the outfit.
now rain boots, coats, gloves...more tears. one doesn’t like her jacket, the other wants to still wear sandals; one gets her jacket on but because the other won’t, that jacket comes off. crying and tears means i surrender to going outside in the rain without their jacket on (can’t fight it). into the car. 745am.
problems with the buckles being “too tight”. more tears and screaming about the ‘beauty and the beast’ song that was chosen by one of them. trying to come to some agreement on song choice between the two. i’m still trying to breathe.
get to school. 8am.
get the jackets on outside so no one gets soaked on the way into their class. resistance still. more tears. one wanting to hold holds but the other wanting to walk solo.
drop off. 815am.
here’s me: smiling. what else can i do?! motherhood today feels insane. so hard. but i made it through the early part of the morn. only 830am.
now work. you gotta laugh at it all, right?! 😂😩😫😁
any parents out there feeling me?! happy monday!

I have harder and easier days with my self-critic. i notice the lines on my face. the circles under my eyes. the way my b***s have gone south. i see the melasma on my skin, the cellulite on my a*s and the few greys in my hair. i’m changing. my body is changing. we’re always changing.
but despite the self-critic that often comes with change, i do have many moments where i close my eyes, envision my life, my loves 👧👧🧔, my recovery, my centre, my freedom, my strength...and i smile. within. and outwardly. a big smile. i can accept all of me.

Dysmorphia and eating disorders - a dangerous (all too common) mental health partnership.
the inability to see yourself as anything other then severely flawed - seeing something about your appearance that doesn’t actually exist in reality.
i often talk about how recovery is long. so long. so long because the ability to re-wire the deafening self-critic that is often accompanied by dysmorphic thoughts is what takes so long to change.
the process of moving through a severely flawed mind - moving through recovery - is like going from seeing blurry to seeing clear.
