K, I know it’s only Rosh Chodesh Elul

But I’m already a bit anxious about Yom Kippur. Both excited (our Rabbinic Intern at my school‘s Hillel asked me to sing Kol Nidre) and sad… as it is unlikely I will be permitted/ able to fast, as my eating disorder really threw me for a loop/ spiraled out of control last year, culminating in hospital and residential treatment at Renfrew‘s Spring Lane Site…

I know I’ll get the whole „you’re meant to live by the commandments, not die by them!!!“ thing from her… but I still will feel really isolated and awful about that.

Okay, so I’m 100% on board with autistic Newt Scamander.

But, like, I think/hope Tina Goldstein is also on the Spectrum. I refuse to surrender that idea.

Periods are canceled for 2018. This year, I don’t want to bleed unless it’s from a wound I earned in honorable combat.

Yeah… they are a pain (in the uterus) but honestly as someone who has been dealing with amenorrhea (as a consequence of a restrictive eating disorder) for much of 2018, I gotta say… I kinda need it back.

„Normal“ Periods (whatever that means for you) are a sign of hormonal health, also part of healthy bones and other stuff. In my case, malnutrition and low weight induced amenhorrea was causing my body to leech calcium from my bones, which in nutritional rehabilitation, I need to remain consistently cognizant of.

Sorry for getting serious on a funny, light hearted post… but laughing at it is laced with ruefulness for me, and the chilling thought that so many young people might experience and dismiss this. It’s a sobering thought.

Being a first year at pesach was nice bc I got to chant the Mah Nishtana. Also I found the afikomen, and now our rabbinic intern has to sing „do you love me“ from fiddler with her girlfriend. And I got to open the door for Elijah… it’s hard, though. People are skeptical about my keeping kosher, as I’m prolly relapsing, and I lost 17 lbs in the past couple months and collapsed a couple times… but yeah…
