Hi, I am Jen. I am in my mid 30's and a Mother of three. I have been a part of Cerulean Butterfly for a long, long time now. Some of the most important people in my life exist within this site. This website has helped me through some of the most difficult periods of my life. Without the support that I have received from my family and friends here, I wonder if I could have made it. I have devoted a lot of time and energy into making this website and community what it has evolved to, today. I am still taking suggestions, as I continuously strive to make this a website and forum that is ever changing to meet the needs of our members.
Anyhow, I have pretty much run through the gambit of eating disorders and mental health problems. I sound like a ball of laughs, huh? I have been through extremely hard times and had times of joy as well- mainly thanks to my beloved family and friends.
I still believe in a future of recovery for myself and for everyone of us.. One where we can feel free of body image and can instead focus more upon the beauty within. I hope for recovery from mental health issues as well for myself and for all of you. Healing takes time and effort. I eventually want for all of us to become comfortable in our own skin and to have an online community which supports each individual in this quest. I wish this for every single person who is still struggling the way that I have. You are never alone! There is always someone here who can lend a listening ear and who knows how it feels. Please join us in this battle against eating disorders and mental health problems. You will have my support and the incredible support of our Butterfly family. Love, Jen
