Re: Nearly 3 years later, and my "recovery" has taken a pretty awful turn.
You have to be in recovery for you.
Doing it for family members or friends is helpful but if you are looking for the possibility of long-term results,focusing on your needs should be the primary objective.
People don't tend to realize that pressuring others to lose weight can make things actually worse for a person with an ED;especially if they were made to feel guilty in order to produce certain results.
Internal guilt will eventually manifest itself externally,making it visible to others.
There has to be a preventative plan of action going forward.
Within the past year,have you experienced any abnormally stressful situations?
Please explain to your doctors' the extent of the progeression.
Have you thought about seeing a therapist? There may be an underlying condition to consider.
When in doubt, post it out.
