I'm Hanne Arts and I'm nineteen years old. I'm a student, bookworm, blogger, YouTuber and author. I started writing when I was about seven, developing an interest in mental health when I myself when through a difficult time in my life. I published my debut novel, JUST PERFECT, in December 2014.

I’ve been told I’m fat. I’ve been told I’m ugly. I’ve been told to stop giving advice and, worse still, to go kill myself. How deeply can someone fall to tell another human being to take his or her own life?

Including some never-before-shown photos, this video was a difficult one for me to make. It was also a particularly difficult evening for me to cope. Why? Well, weighing myself again after 2 months wasn’t exactly the easiest thing to do. Plus, I’d been flipping through my diary and had stumbled across a terrible, terrible YouTube comment amongst the many, many positive ones (more on that later). Sounds like the perfect combination, doesn’t it?

"Just have some pie/pizza/[insert other food type here] and it will be ok." Well, that's not really how it goes. I'm sure you've all heard similar thoughtless comments in anorexia/bulimia/eating disorder recovery, but if it was all so simple I don't think so many would be struggling with the process of recovery!

This week's video has been requested for a while, and it has taken me so long to post because I was busy with all sorts of projects and didn’t get around to the editing of the video, and once I got around to the editing I totally forgot to get around to the uploading. But it’s up now, so I hope it’ll give you some new inspiration and motivation.
