What September 11 Reminds Us About Eating Disorder Recovery

Keep Calm and Love Who You Are

Today many of our eating disorder clients are rehashing where they were on
September 11, 2001. Some were in high school, others in college, some were
taking care of children and in the peaks of their career. The contrast of their
lives 11 years ago versus being in eating disorder treatment today is dramatically different.
Eleven years ago many of them were in the early stages of their eating
disorders or in the middle of them.  Today
they are eager to gain recovery, going to therapy, seeing their nutritionists
and also remembering how many lives were lost on September 11th 2001.

Over 3000 lives were lost on September 11th. It
is estimated that 350,000 people die yearly from eating disorders. Today the
Victorian house is taking a moment to be grateful for the hearts they have that
are still beating and the lives that can be reclaimed through recovery. We
honor those lives that have been lost and the men and women who served the US.
We also honor our own clinicians, nurses and staff who work day in and day out
to help our clients in the darkest parts of their life. Today our motto is “Keep
Calm and Love Who You Are.”

11th remind you to be grateful for?
