ARE U OK? http://geni.us/sva4iUY
I created this video because a lot of people talk about "recovery" and being in or out of recovery from an eating disorder. I wanted to make sure that when I use the term recovery, you know what I mean by it. First of all I want to acknowledge that recovery is different for everyone. No one person will have the same experience with recovery...you may share similar feelings about it, but ultimately it is your own unique experience. Also, I want to clarify that recovery is not black and white!! You may be doing well for a few days and then have a really "bad" ED day. You may only be thinking about recovery and so to you recovery is just the thought of a better life without your ED voice always yelling at you. Whatever recovery is to you, let me know. I think of recovery as the process of deciding not to follow what your ED says. That doesn't mean that you won't get tripped up at times, but you really notice what your ED is saying and you try to not listen.

Sometimes it can help, if you are in the beginning stages, to think of a reason to recover. Not just "I don't want to be sick anymore" but a real tangible reason. For example, I would like to see my sister's child or I would like to get married someday, or I would like to see my child graduate. Whatever it is, remind yourself of it every day. Maybe put up some pictures or post it notes (you know how I love those) to remind yourself. It is a process and anything we can do to make it easier is a good thing!

Share this video with anyone who you think could benefit. This may even be helpful for you to share with a parent who just doesn't get what you are going through. Feel free to pass it on!! And continue working towards a healthy mind, healthy body.
