  1. This was really interesting to watch & thank you for posting. I’m really looking forward to your blog being more about lifestyle/fashion because I adore your writing style but can find ‘recovery’ posts very difficult at times. Removing yourself is a really positive thing, I believe.

    A few months ago I wrote a little post about online ‘recovery communities’ and their detrimental impacts over on my blog here. When it was first posted it had a really negative backlash but since reposting has had positive responses (what’s up with that?!).

    You have a talent, Annie. And you have a passion. And you should keep working with that because it is beautiful and it is a gift. Thank you, as ever for sharing 🙂

  2. I love everything about this video and am so glad you’re not going to stop blogging & vlogging. It sounds like you’re making a really healthy decision for yourself by taking the focus off of eating disorder recovery. Can’t wait to see the new blog ❤

  3. I’m really glad you’ve decided to still blog. I really love your blog! and as one of the people you’ve really inspired I’d just like to thank you for being such a strong inspiration. Even though you don’t want to do “recovery” posts anymore I’d just like you to know that they really did help me realize what I needed to do 🙂

  4. I love you so much, Annie, and I’m really glad you’re pulling yourself out of the recovery community, as it can be a very toxic inhibitor to personal growth. I hope you are feeling less stressed now that you’ve taken time to decompress and get out your feelings. Please know I will always be here for you, at any time. ❤ ❤

  6. Dear Annie,
    I have been watching your videos on youtube and reading your posts on here, and IG for awhile now. I may have commented a few times, but to you, I am still a stranger. This last video pulled at my heart strings, because as someone who has been in active recovery since 2012, I feel that you are a POSITIVE influence on people, regardless of your struggles. Nowhere did I see a woman who was triggering other people intentionally, or encouraging eating disorders— I always saw the exact opposite. And for those who are being triggered by your videos…. they are not in a place mentally where they should be (and that is okay! It all takes time, and it is a f***ing long process!) for recovery, and that has nothing to do with YOU. What I am trying to say, is, YOU are a beautiful, BRIGHT, positive person. I see so much struggle in you, but I also see more LIGHT than the demon that keeps trying to break you and hold you captive. You are REAL, and that is what I love about you. And you know what? I admire you for wanting to be more positive and happy, and I am EXCITED to watch that, but I also want you to not SUPPRESS your sadness and frustration, because you are looking out for others. Your ups AND downs DO help people!! Anyway, I know this is one big rant, but I wanted to let you know that it is OKAY to feel whatever you are feeling that day, and not every day has to be sunshine and rainbows, ya know? You are amazing, girl. Keep on kicking butt! You deserve a life free of e.d. and any demons you face. I truly believe in you. And if you ever need an ear, I am here for you- despite being a complete stranger…lol. Feel free to stalk me online or email me @veronicaAnn7@hotmail.com
    SO much love to you. DO YOU, GIRL!

  9. This is perfect. My IG just got deleted (for “promoting self harm/eating disorders) and I was so, so upset. But then this video made me realize that maybe, it’s not such a bad thing. I was obsessed with instagram and I need to find my life outside of my disorder. I look forward to keeping up with your blog.

  10. This is not going to be a long heartfelt comment because I am not great at those. I just want you to know how much you help me and how much you just helped me. I made the transition to barely posting on instagram a week or so ago. I’m now almost positive that mine needs to be deleted. I am way past the recovery point of 90% of the people I see on there physically and mentally (for goodness sake I’m 22….) (not being rude, just honest and done with this disorder after years of it) and I think I have felt 1000000000% more free since posting less. And the positive fact that I didn’t want to post for recovery purposes got backlash for the fact that people thought I was doing horribly. Wow…this post became longer than I meany it to be….but I wanted to say thank you. The craziest part for me was realizing you were 20 and younger than myself. I look up to you and automatically assumed you were older than me. And that’s 10000000% a compliment. I cannot wait to continue reading your new blogs and watching your new vlogs. Stay positive and awesome Annie. 💜
