Maggie, nineteen, currently in IOP to recover from a relapse in my eating disorder. A lover of peanut butter, sunflowers, and baseball. Follow me on my road to recovery as I discover life beyond my ED.

My mind is so much more peaceful now

Amen! (i’m still doing exchanges but still much better than straight up calorie counting and only letting myself eat a small number)

This is for every and any person who has made the mistake of equating his/her self-worth with the number on the scale. :)

Yes, it’s really tough. I still struggle with it and don’t totally know what either of us should do. I will say that with recovery, those thoughts have gotten increasingly quieter and I’m beginning to like happy and healthier Tess a hell of a lot more than anorexia

I have filled out 3 job applications today— I guess you could say I’ve been productive.

  • I am allowed to be vocal about my pain if it helps me heal
  • I am allowed to be sad in places other than my own head
  • I am allowed to express my anger/sadness/hurt in ways that do not hurt other people, whether that is in writing or speaking to friends
  • I am allowed to speak my truth even when it makes others uncomfortable
  • I am allowed to take care of myself, even if it makes people who hurt me uncomfortable
  • I am allowed to create my own rules for self-care
