So much has happened since the last time I was on here… B

So much has happened since the last time I was on here…
By some miracle of God, I finished high school in one piece.
I found a guy I really like, maybe even love, who seems to really care about me, maybe even love me, too. He doesn’t seem like he wants to hurt me, and even though he knows what I went through, what I did, he still seems to genuinely care for me.
I'm over my exercise addiction and can go to the gym or on a run without feeling bad about what it might be doing to my body.
I've completely overcome my body issues (which in part lead me to get over my exercise addiction) and have a healthy, normal diet for a young woman my size.
I'm not trying to heal and get over my assault with sex or men anymore.
I’m not scared anymore. Of me, of others, of any of the little things that the very thought of absolutely petrified me. I’m going to be strong now, and for the foreseeable future.
But I think the thing I'm most proud of is that I'm no longer afraid of my future. I have a plan; I know what I'm doing. While college was my plan, and my only concrete plan, it fell through. But what came out of it is a far more secure future, a future that is going to keep me healthy and give me the skills I need to protect myself and those I care about. I will not live in fear anymore.
I've made the decision to become a United States Airman and have all but completed the process to enlist into the Air Force.
And for those who read this far, thank you. Thank you for supporting me, and know that I support you with my whole heart. I care about all of you, because all of you cared about me, and helped me through my darkest hour.
This website helped me through so much turmoil. I never thought I'd make it out alive.
But I did.
And you will too.
I love all of you, and I care about all of you. If nothing else, be comforted by the fact that someone out there has gone through what you have, or something similar, and understands what you're feeling, and doesn't want anything bad to happen to you.
And if you ever need to talk, just send me a message. I would love to talk to you, because I consider us friends, and friends help friends.
Thanks, and I love you!! <3 <3 <3
