I had body image issues from a young age.
Although I was never anorexic, I did have seriously bad eating habits. Over the years, I reached a point of healing my relationship with my body and accepting it. Only to then suffer major health issues — including cancer and colon problems. These severely impacted both my physical appearance and functioning, and my feelings about my body.
My creative process, each time, helped me to understand what had changed for me, and to see things from my new perspective. Then I could embrace those changes, physical and emotional, and build a new, positive relationship with my body.
