Storyboard Text

  • A year later
  • Dad, don't cry!! I'm at a healthier weight now, not to mention I've come to love myself for who I am.
  • Before you see where you'll be staying, what I said earlier was about eating disorders, similar to Anorexia. People share their stories here as they recover from food restrictions or food rituals.
  • There's more people out there struggling with their relationship with food but have different disorders?
  • The next day in the outdoors
  • Hey there, Nova. Considering I've never had friends, I don't know how to give you a response besides let's see.
  • Hi, I'm Nova! I heard there was a Maia joined us so I hope we could be friends!
  • I'm finally home with my dad now. I've made more friends and kept in contact with Nova. But most importantly, I've accepted myself through this journey.
  • ...
  • It was a little hard to not think about it while swallowing a bite but we did do it, even if it was just one!
  • Was deciding on a doughnut the brightest idea? No, but it was better than the rest. We can do it!
  • For once knowing that I'd be with people who have been dealing with the same thing, made me feel a lot less alone.
  • In front of the entrance to the park
  • ..
  • Wait.. this whole time Nova has been prevented me from going back to my old patterns with my body and food because he wanted to teach me how to reach out!
  • Nova was the first friend I made. He turned out to be around my age and has been there the longest out of everyone because he'd relapse with his eating behaviors.
  • Hangout back in the first hospital
  • Maia! How have you been? Has anything been bothering you?
  • Hi, Dr, Eden! I'm actually doing a lot better now. Getting to a healthier weight is my goal. Sometimes, I find it hard not to obsessively check my weight but I know I'll get better.
  • As time went on, we hung out more often. Both of us would even help each other out by trying out one of our fear foods together every day.
  • !
  • It suddenly hit me. Nova actually cared about my eating disorder and understood it from my perspective when everyone else had urged me to eat more. I hadn't thought about picking at every part of my body since I had become friends with him.
  • From then on, I decided I was going to take my recovery seriously. I followed the meal plan they gave me, was prescribed some medications and attended therapy twice a week. It was the start to loving myself.
  • !!!!
