Someone reached out to me through Facebook. She read my article in the Star and is also suffering with an Eating Disorder.
She’s smart, well spoken and wants out. Just like so many people.
She hates when people tell her to “Just eat.” She would love to respond “Just fuck off.”
We wish it was that easy. We know better.
Her concern is that even when she is recovered, will she ever be fully recovered? Will we always be recovering? For the rest of our lives?
She feels that the only way she would be recovered is by having a new brain. A new way of thinking.
It is so unfortunate that an Eating Disorder has so much power.
