This struck me,
it resonated. I do NOT and never have had an eating disorder. I nearly starved as a child because I was hypometabolic and hyperactive…but I ate like a horse! (I remember sucking the marrow from chicken bones, for example, can’t imagine doing that now, but I’m not hyperactive anymore either!)
What resonated was your journey towards health. It seems that whether it is someone like me with PTSD or someone with other problems, that the road to health has many of the same steps. It is HARD to make those steps towards self-love; it is HARD to stay the course, and I applaud your perseverance and triumphs!
One thing I found, when I reached my “big” goal, I kept looking for the brass band or the parade, but there wasn’t one. No one, except me, really knew that I’d FINALLY gotten where I had struggled for so many years to be.
So here’s one for you, as whether I know/understand what it’s like to have an ED, I certainly DO understand what it’s like to spend a long time turning your life around!
