Patient Leader

I'm Ally, and I am a mental health advocate. After an anxiety diagnosis and struggling with food/body image, I started my Instagram account to help others see the quirky, non-glamourous parts of everyday life: a corner of the internet where they could see themselves, rather than a "perfect" image of who they "should" be. I wanted to show people that you can love the parts of you you always hated. I want to show people that you are allowed to ask questions and look for the relationship you want in a treatment team. More than anything, though, I want to show people that they are't alone. The words "Me too" are so powerful, and have changed my life.
