Thumbs up the overcoming bulimia workbook

I just got this "workbook" called 'The Overcoming Bulimia Workbook" and it's really helpful. I've been having a hard time lately, so I ordered this book after my group therapist recommended it. It came in the mail the other day, and I've just begun looking at it. It's kind of giving me a different way of looking at things. I know there's one for anorexia ("The overcoming anorexia workbook"), I'm assuming it's helpful as well.

There's also another book that I just ordered and read, it's called "Learning to be Me" and is a memoir about the author's 23 year struggle with bulimia. For me it was really refreshing because it was about bulimia. I've read so many books about anorexia, and I always got the feeling that I was the only one who struggled with bulimia, even though I knew I wasnt, it felt like it. So hearing about someone who's recovered/recovering from bulimia was really nice. It gave me some hope. :-)

Do any of you have other books that have been helpful to you in recovery?

Re: the overcoming bulimia workbook

i would definitely take a look into reading caroline knapp's Appetites. While the book explores different levels of eating disorders, it also goes into detail about other self-destructive behaviors. It also goes in depth on sociological issues regarding dieting and how that affects a person.

Eating in the Light of the Moon also offers a different take on eating disorders. It takes a metaphorical stance and helps to analyze your ed.


hope that helps and i will def. look into that wrkbk
