Eating Disorder Recovery Exercise / Compulsive Movement Fear & Anxiety In Recovery Restriction & Fear Foods Rewiring / Neuroplasticity

Brain Rewiring Feels Clunky!

They say rewiring the brain is like trying to write with your left hand if you are right handed.  It feels wrong, takes immense concentration and is exhausting…
… but slowly you develop the skill.

Right now sitting, eating, rewiring to recover feels so wrong… takes more concentration than being a contestant on Mastermind and my head hurts from it all.

The only positive I have is to cling onto the hope that my brain is slowly developing non disordered life skills… I suppose writing with your left hand is without the added challenge of fear attached to spice up the rewiring process – but recovery would be boring without a bit of fear, anxiety and distress attached – right?!?
