Alishia Dauterive learned early there are a bunch of names for a bunch of mental health conditions. But she never believed herself sick or disordered just because some manual told her she should. And she learned through peer support that there is more to this thing we call recovery than the straight and narrow path we’re often forced down.

Longing for a life that felt safe a secure, she would escape into food, novels and movies to avoid facing her fears. Bethany discovers that her false beliefs and need for approval are what needed to change.
