Having an illness can make you feel like a freak. Being highly sensitive can make you feel uncomfortably different. Coping with eating disorder recovery can make you feel like the only person in the world going through the same thing.

Whenever we feel abnormal we feel alone.

But venture through our site and you’ll realize that you’re not. Far from it, in fact.

I was watching the 2010 Alice in Wonderland movie directed by Tim Burton when I came across this spine tingling conversation between the Mad Hatter and Alice:

Mad Hatter: “Have I gone mad?”
Alice: “Afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”

Maybe being different isn’t something you would have chosen for yourself. But your diagnosis, your problems, your history, all make up who you are. And there is something special in that. You just need to find the courage to accept it and embrace it.
