Oh, God! Not another post on gratitude!

Two topics are certain to quickly end a discussion with many people in recovery: God and gratitude. Ironically, the only two things proven essential for long-term and enjoyable recovery are those very two subjects. If we can hardly talk about those two essentials for recovery continuance, then we are surely destined to again be clutched…

Accountability

Written by ViR: Dolores Schwartz (@GettinFit_Bah_D) Blog: http://myinnermuse.wordpress.com/ I started a blog post (five in fact) And it wasn’t jiving with me.  I even had a case of writers block… Talking about recovering from bulimia is hard…  But, I want it to talk about it…  I want people to know about the harm, bulimia has…

Finding Hope and Balance in the Holidays

Written by: Aimée Lévesque The keywords in the title might as well have been arranged this way instead: Hoping to Find the Balance (the weight-scale, in French) in the Holidays In fact, the last couple of times I went back to my family’s house during the Holidays, and to daily life with them, I found myself…

How Do We Define Recovery – Nina's Experience

Written by ViR: Nina I loved reading this post “How Do We Define Recovery” on your blog. It is something that had me fascinated and confused for many years.

The Stripped Project: Part III

Written by: @StarrLitLove This week I had a revelation. An epiphany. Call it what you wish. It was fantastic.

The Stripped Project: Part II

Yesterday I introduced #TheStrippedProject and shared my response to it. I truly appreciate all the comments with initial reactions and thoughts to this project. I thought it would actually create a dialogue, with conflicting thoughts. I knew it was only MY response, and welcomed the dialogue. After all, sometimes these topics are challenging to talk…

Written by: Mary Maxfield Brave Most of you have probably heard the story of Scheherazade, the Persian queen who saves her life through storytelling.  This may be strange, but when I consider the role “voice” has played in my recovery, it’s often Scheherazade’s image that comes to mind. Her story serves as a personal reminder — for me…

That silence would be followed by the usual assumptions that eating disorders are a “girl’s illness” and “oh…

Thin It to Win It: Competition in Treatment

Written by: Sarah Henderson When you have an eating disorder (particularly anorexia), people react in one of two ways. Either they want to get you help– or they’re jealous.
