The ED isn't working for me anymore. It doesn't make me feel better, nor does it help with anxiety, or anything it used to do. So why can't I begin to heal? I'm as addicted as ever to this. This is so frustrating and discouraging

Hello FleurMalingre,

An eating disorder is used as a coping mechanism to alleviate the uncomfortability of stressors,etc.

If the ED persists long enough,it can become obsessively compulsive in behavior.

Healing,in and of itself,is a process.

This type of learned behavior wasn't developed overnight and will take time and effort on your behalf,in order for the possibility of recovery to exist.

Respectfully stated,
Phoenix
