Eating Disorder Support
“What I have learned by getting through to the other side of recovery, by being recoverED, is that I’m a good person, and a much more complete person WITHOUT an Eating Disorder. I did not lose my compassion or my ability to understand, nor did I lose my creativity or ability to be unique. What I gained was more creativity and understanding, and a true appreciation for how special I truly am, and how truly unique we ALL are. What I know now is that it takes much more strength to recover, and to truly live life, than to hide away inside an Eating Disorder forever.”
