Autumn Kay. 22 years old. English Major. Livin’ in SoCal. I have a past with cocaine and a past and present with anorexia.
December 2011 I was in a serious car wreck. 5 feet of intestines removed, half my colon taken out, a slice in my liver, and a shattered lumbar. I now have 2 rods and 4 pins holding my lower back together.
Late 2012, early 2013 I developed an addiction to cocaine. I was that girl doing whatever the fuck I wanted because I lived with the big hustlers of our area. I had whatever I wanted at my disposal. It seemed amazing at the time, but no. My hair started falling out, it triggered my ED like crazy (I got down to 87 lbs), my mood swings were awful, I let people walk all over me, my gums bled, my fingers peeled. It wasn’t pretty. So, I left that area to straighten my life out in March 2013.
I’m overcoming the addiction pretty damn well. I’ve developed a love for writing and I finally have dreams and goals I’m accomplishing every day.
My eating disorder is an insane roller coaster. One week I’m in love with myself, the next week I think I’m a gross cow.
As we say back home, “The struggle is forreal, real.”
