Eating Disorders, Trauma and Sexual Abuse: 15 Questions for You

silhouette dark woman 67202 480Question: What's hidden under your clothes, under your awareness, under your eating disorder? Answer: the path to your healing.

Are we done with vanity being the cause of eating disorders? Are we done with attributing character flaws and psychological  weakness to people with eating disorders?  I hope so.  

These beliefs are more than false. They undermine a person's appreciation of themselves, foster shame and inhibit seeking help.

Find out what does help you.

In the midst of tragedy, your eating disorder recovery matters

On July 13 I received an e-mail  from my friend Anne, subject line, "Hello from Paris."  She is travelling in Europe with her husband  and about to take a small river boat journey through the center of France to Nice. I didn't respond right away. Her post got lost in a mass of e-mails in my inbox.

The next day I joined millions of people throughout the world in shock, horror and grief as Nice got her heart ripped out by a man with a truck and guns.  We were still reeling from the police being attacked and killed in Orlando.  Today, July 17, police were lured to their death by a phony 911 call in Baton Rouge.

Eating Disorder Body Fantasy and Path to Recovery

*pix Romantic, colorful, joyous uplifting sight - balloons rising into a beautiful sky. This is pleasure, even elation, in the moment.  But, living to keep an ephemeral bit of lovliness as a permanent state of being can be disastrous. Can you enjoy a moment and stay in the reality of cause and effect?

Reality

Balloons pop.  Balloons deflate. Their pieces fall to the ground or lodge in trees and bushes. Colors fade. The physicality of the balloon is fragile. The balloon is designed for a short life span and then succumbs to the forces of nature and collapses.

Your body is not a balloon. It can be strong, healthy and survive many harsh experiences. It can be lovely, uplifting and provide you with joy - the joy and exuberance of health. 

Stay in Eating Disorder Recovery on the 4th of July

Every holiday seems to have a large food component in our culture.  Fourth of July is no exception.  *pix

If you have an eating disorder the holiday may pose some challenges for you that other people don't consider.

If you recognize these challenges and confront them directly in terms of your needs and vulnerabilities, 
you can participate in a fun celebration while maintaining your eating disorder recovery.

Fourth of July food challenges take many forms.
