articles dear to my heart
I think I might have an eating disorder..
here is a blog written by Maris Degener sharing different types of eating disorders and resources for healing.
she has a film on Netflix, I Am Maris, that when I watched I felt like I had been truly seen for the first time; for something I hadn't ever openly shared with anyone.
from then on I have ventured on healing my relationship with my body, being open and honest about the symptoms and tendencies have, and sharing pieces of this journey.
this article is a great first step beginning support on the road to healing and living with an eating disorder.
food crisis for the Indigenous
last fall for the entire month of November, I dedicated my energy to sharing information and resources to support the Indigenous tribes and people; the true people of this land.
I would come across article after article that each seemingly broke my heart in new ways..
and it is very clear to me that it is our duty to do better and to do more for our Indigenous brothers and sisters.
They have been abused and mistreated for centuries now. and face poverty, starvation, trafficking, unjust land laws and so much more..
here is an article on food scarcity by NAHA, an organization that is dedicated to feeding Natives all across the country; especially focusing on the poorest tribes within the Nation.
please read, and if you are interested in more articles and organizations and want my help then feel free to message me!
