The recovery process

When I first started my therapy, I was shocked to realize that there was no judgment of me or of the feelings I was experiencing. I truly expected to be condemned. All those suffering from eating disorders feel horrendously guilty, as though they are committing a crime.

Up until I met the cognitive behavioral therapist who helped me to recover, I had seen many ‘professionals’ who treated me in a cold and judgmental way, and in so doing, helped to drive me deeper into the disordered behavior.

Once I had accepted that there were reasons why I had developed the eating disorder and that those reasons were not my fault, I was able to begin to see that there was a way out after all.
