Pictures of recovery

Once I had finished my last post, I kept thinking about what this experience really felt like. I have spent the whole year battling an invisible foe that lives inside me. I desperately want to get better, so why does it take so long? What's so hard about it? Why can't I just snap out of it? On the surface, the solution looks straightforward enough. Step 1: Eat. Step 2: Don't vomit. It's impossible to explain what recovery is actually like, at least in short form.

So here are two pictures, to help show how it is and how it isn't.

 I think some people imagine recovery is like this. It isn't.
This is more accurate.
