Encourage, lift and strengthen one another. For the positive energy spread to one will be felt by us all. For we are connected, one and all.
The one thing to ask your support to do. Please find below a brilliant post by Ali Kerr on the one thing to ask your support to do. Facing challenging life situations often prompt eating disorder behaviors and won’t necessarily cease cropping up, so it is important those in recovery honestly evaluate all that contributes to their Eating Disorder behaviors. Recovery happens not only in a treatment facility, but in the daily life of a sufferer after they leave. It involves creating a new life based on principals that promote health and well-being.Humans are social creatures. The interactions people have with others will greatly influence how they view themselves and the world around them. Those who are attempting to break free from the Demon of Eating Disorder will require positive social support to increase their chances of success. Without such support, it will be difficult for these individuals to make the necessary life changes required for lasting change. The availability of a good social network is particularly vital during the early months of recovery.
Your small support could accomplish a big dream.
the goal of all of us at HealED is to help show you exactly HOW you can recover from your eating disorder.
That is, to help you get to a place where your body no longer craves or wants to binge or purge on food. Where food becomes just food and nothing more.
This is very achievable and we’re committed to helping you any way we can.
As your reading this you may be thinking:
“Yeah right, easy for you to say! You’ve recovered!”
I get it.
I remember when I started my recovery.
I struggled to find real help and real support.
To be honest I felt hopelessly overwhelmed, completely under-prepared and desperately alone.
It felt like I was being asked to climb Mount Everest without a map, a compass or anyone to help me…
I was desperate to quit before I had even started.
You know if there is one thing I have learned over the years it is that to succeed in recovery you need to surround yourself with the right people and the right support. When you have someone right there by your side guiding you through one of the hardest challenges of your life, you chances of success greatly improve.
No one should have to face recovery alone.
Make sure you find someone who can support you through your recovery.
And if they can only do one thing for you.
Make sure you ask them to “just listen”.
It is a kingly act to assist the fallen.
In health and love,
