I feel like reintroductions are in order since it’s been a while.
Hello lovely citizens of Instagram. I’m Alyssa (formerly @lysslady ), 29 years old, and Canadian, eh.
I identify as bi/queer and use she/her pronouns.
This account and my #boringactsofrecovery are a lot of things to me; a way to express myself and work through the things in my life, a place to learn and to grow, a platform to educate, advocate, and spread awareness, and a safe space for those who need one.
I live with an invisible disability called vasovagal syncope, chronic headaches, depression, and anxiety. I’m in recovery for binge eating disorder and am doing my best to get out of that toxic diet culture mindset, instead focusing on personal body confidence and societal body positivity. I’m also currently navigating my way through grief after the loss of someone very close to me.
When I’m not writing, I’m probably making. I run an Etsy shop @thepearlandpetal where I make one of a kind flower, mermaid, and unicorn crowns. Give us a follow to support small, female-owned businesses! Starting in September I’ll also be a part-time after-school caregiver.
I love reading, and am always looking for recommendations. If you’re into old movies, we’ll be instant friends. A good outfit makes me happy. And Jessica Fletcher is my idol.
