who am i?
My name is Ariel. I want to share my story to raise awareness about invisible illness/disability, to shed light on the reality of eating disorders, and – let's be honest – for the catharsis.
Since 2015 I've been in recovery from an eating disorder, chased health diagnoses, worked, gone to college, and left college (for now).

generalized anxiety disorder with obsessive-compulsive tendencies
In Los Angeles; sharing a little apartment with my boyfriend; going to a lot of medical appointments; in intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) for eating disorder.
I'm a classical singer. (I've put my training on hold for a bit because the hypermobility makes it difficult to sing properly.)
I'm bisexual and my pronouns are they/she.
I speak Hebrew, English, and some Spanish.
I love baking!
