Why did I take on the project of creating a Guide for recovering from an eating disorder? And why did I want it written by those with lived experience? Because I know from personal experience that there are some pieces to an eating disorder that cannot be explained. There is an overwhelming sense of comfort and ease knowing that someone else out there has gone through the same struggle.
But more importantly, this Guide knows what it’s like to recover.
It can help you find a will to change, help build up a strong sense of self with a new, healthy way of coping that does not involve an eating disorder. By reading this, I want readers to feel empowered, confident, and understood.
You are not alone.
