A Post Originally Written For Instagram Towards The Start Of My Recovery:
We talk a lot about the food side of eating disorder recovery and the new food hurdles we are jumping and delicious cuisine we are enjoying… but we often fail to talk about the fact that recovery is not all fun and games!!
Since starting this recovery, the tissues have been regularly needed for the meltdowns, tears and emotions that have been generated in the process of pushing myself on the eating, resting and weight gain.
It’s been a rollercoaster ride so far, some days are good and even enjoyable but other times are so intensely emotional that it can be easy to want to turn back.
I’m also aware this emotional journey is not just impacting me but also my family who are working so hard to establish how they best support me and getting more grey hairs in the process!
I’m just holding onto the fact that the emotions and anxiety are eating disorder related and there because I’m winning over it and so to come out the other side means going through the hard stuff now!
This is not forever and will be worth it …. in the meantime there’s Kleenex!!!
