When The Inside Doesn’t Match The Outside

Each person’s experience, history and challenges in recovery are different, but the misery of living with an eating disorder is the same – a kind of desperate despair.

If you are a person with an eating disorder, no matter how good your life looks on the outside, you know more about suffering and despair than most people. Sometimes even you don’t know how deep your anguish goes because the numbing power of an eating disorder can anesthetize you to pain you only become aware of once recovery begins.

The good news is that recovery is possible. It’s not easy, but it’s possible. I live it and see it often.
