Seeking Help; YOU Deserve It!!

I’d like to simply encourage everyone who is reading this post to think carefully about what THEY need in terms of therapy/treatment. If you are suffering from an eating disorder, please get help. Please tell someone else in your life who you know you can trust to stand by you, and most of all, PLEASE don’t allow yourself to blame yourself or fall into the trap of thinking that you don’t deserve help.
No one decided to ‘have’ an eating disorder on purpose. Yes, you may go on a diet (which is a huge risk factor), but you don’t go into it knowing how much an eating disorder will take from you, how it will damage your body, your soul, and your quality of life.
It is NOT your fault, and it is not a choice, but getting help can be a choice, so please choose life!
It’s important to get help from a professional who specializes in eating disorders, and, who is not ill themselves. It’s not uncommon to run into professionals who claim to be recovered, and honestly want to help, but if they are not truly FULLY recovered, they will only cause harm.
NOTICE that you need help; CHOOSE to reach out for it; and ACT according to a recovery plan.
Recovery is possible, and FULL recovery is something that you all CAN achieve with the right help. It takes time, but your life is worth it!!
