Are you caught in a pattern of self sacrifice?

Modena ambulancePost inspired by Tracy's letter in comments.

How to help your anorexic friend

Eating Disorder Hope is running a thoughtful article, "Anorexia and Friendship: How Do I Help My Friend?."   I'm often asked this question by teens but also by adults including family members.

While I like the content of the article I have to add this missing and what I consider a vital piece of the answer.

More about your body being your friend

mauve six petalsThe comments to the previous article: "Your body is your friend who's there for you 100% of the time," spawned a fascinating and moving conversation in the comments.  Thank you for your candor. I so appreciate your honesty and courage.  pix*

Your body is your friend who's there for you 100% of the time.

Eating disorders block emotions and create distorted thinking. If you read recovery books, are in therapy or go to support groups or 12-step meetings you've heard this.

But what does this actually mean in your experience? You can't feel what you don't feel. You can't think clearly and realistically if your thinking is distorted.
