Why I Write

Rachael Allen

I don’t know what I’m doing

Hi! I’m Rachael and welcome to my blog. I thought I best write a small piece on why I started this and why I talk about what I do. I have been struggling with an eating disorder for a while which includes bulimia, binge eating and a large fear of eating certain foods incase I gain weight. I’m currently on the road to recovery and use my blog as a safe space, you will probably see a lot of posts on body positivity. I want to be able to let people know it’s alright to talk about these things and help people love their bodies a little bit more, whilst learning not to give a fuck what others think of me.

I am huge on self help and self improvement, to help me along my way I started a nutrition course. This mixed with being vegan helps me create some…interesting meals. I’ll be talking a bit about the foods I make, restaurants I go to and everything related to veganism on my page too. I would love to be able to inform people on the fact that calories are most definitely not the important factor when it comes to health, especially coming from someone who calorie counted for around four years.

I also struggled with mental health issues for quite a few years, I feel being able to share my experience will help others realise that they should not feel ashamed to talk about their experiences and as cliche as it sounds, there is actually a light at the end of the tunnel. It might be the size of a key ring flashlight at the minute, but it’s still there.

Just to throw in some extra spice I will also be writing pieces on inequality society still faces and modern day issues I feel people need to be informed about. So in conclusion, I will be writing about literally everything you could think of. Sometime’s with a lot of swearing and always with some sarcasm.

I am by no means an expert, but I think it’s important for people to know that the average person in a boring little town struggles with issues like this. I believe it will make it more normalised in society to know there’s others out there who are feeling the same. Come follow me and I hope you enjoy reading my anger fuelled posts.
