How to deal with relapses







You can’t always change your situation, but you can always change your attitude
Larry Hargraves

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude

Dear Readers,

Please find below new post from Bulimia Help ‘How to deal with Binge Eating Relapses’. Relapses are part of recovery. For most sufferers dealing with recovery is anything but a smooth path, it is a long path, with ups and downs, successes and disappointments and often instances of backsliding or relapse, in which someone returns to using their behaviour(s) of choice and/or doing a problematic behavior. Please keep in mind, Relapse is not a failure but instead a common — and very frustrating — part of recovery from eating disorder. Ali Kerr said: 


Relapses happen to nearly everyone in recovery.
In a way they are to be expected. 

So I want to share with you some simple but
effective strategies to help you deal with binge eating relapses. 


I hope you’ll find this video as useful as many others do. 




A beautiful Poem of Hope sent to me by a sufferer in Relapse from Johannesburg. 


Heart Touching Poem about the Care of Allah towards us


Oh Allah ! I told You I’m in pain
You said: “do not despair of the mercy of Allah.” (Al-Quran 39:53)

I told You nobody knows what is in my heart
You said: “Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” (Al-Quran 13:28)

I told You many people hurt me
You said: “So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them” (Al-Quran 3:159)

I told You I feel I’m alone
You said: “We are closer to him than [his]jugular vein.” (Al-Quran 50:16)

I told You my sins are so many
You said: “and who can forgive sins except Allah?” (Al-Quran 3:135)

I told You do not leave me
You said: “So remember Me; I will remember you.” (Al-Quran 2:152)

I told You I’m facing a lot of difficulties in life
You said: “And whoever fears Allah, He will make for him a way out.” (Al-Quran 65:2)

I told You oh Lord ! I need hope
You said: “Indeed, with hardship [will be]ease.” (Al-Quran 94:6)

I told You I have many dreams
You said: “Call upon Me; I will respond to you.” (Al-Quran 40:60)

I told You to give me just little but for sure, Oh my Rabb! You Are The Best, you gave me everything.. Alhamdulillah.. And Now May I, Oh Allah, be among those who have succeeded.. Allahumma Ameen!


Allah Akbar
