051 Fighting Anorexia – Explaining Your “Crazy” Behavior To Outsiders

In this episode of Fighting Anorexia, I give you some tips on how to have a conversation with your loved ones about your behaviors and the lies your eating disorder is telling you.

I share with you the following:

1. We can seem a bit crazy to the outside world.

2. I had a very rough week with a lot of crazy behavior.

3. It’s your job to make your friends, partners and everyone else you’d like to know more about your disorder understand.

4. Be honest. There is no right or wrong way, there is only the honest way of communicating.

5. Tell them they can always ask.

6. Have patience with them.

7. Have the conversation over and over again.
