Five words that relate to your Eating Disorder.
Five words that relate to your Recovery.
Why are they important and how are they relevant?
Loss - of myself and so many other things.
Entrapment - within a battle between myself and...it.
Fear - that I somehow won't beat it.
Self-hatred - never feeling good enough.
Death - a slow one from the inside out.
Self-worth - I am more than an ED and the awful things it makes me feel.
Strength - to keep going no matter what it takes.
Freedom - To enjoy the little things - blueberry muffins and shoes for example.
Truth- where honesty replaces distortion.
Life - to be present in it...
