Hello,

Coronavirus fears are spreading throughout our communities. While I believe conscientious self care and hygiene practices will be adequate to ensure our health, we can make adjustments to increase prevention.

My office is cleaned on a regular basis. This includes rugs and furniture. Door knobs and surfaces are disinfected. We sit about four feet from one another. As I understand the existing protocol, three feet is the suggested and recommended social distance, particularly if someone is ill.

High drama in the world requires us to respond in the most stable and healthy way possible. Not easy, but possible.

Caronavirus news and the falling global financial markets can reignite old eating disorder feelings and behaviors. If you have been living without your eating disorder and now are shocked that it has kicked in during this time of fear and crisis you are not alone. Please remember, when crisis is upon us we need to center and think clearly. We need to take positive action to care for ourselves, externally and internally.

You will be limited if your eating disorder takes charge of your decision making. Yes, it can tap down your anxiety. But it also taps down your clarity of thought and your creativity. It stifles your perceptions of opportunity and your realistic approach to real problems both in the world and your immediate living situation. (See end of article for help resources.) 

Why is your eating disorder back?

How Dreams Penetrate Eating Disorder Defenses and Speed Recovery

*In eating disorder recovery dreams your authentic self breaks throught the eating disorder shell to bring clarity in a disguised language of images.

An eating disorder blocks or distorts complex or subtle emotions. With an eating disorder, a person feels fear, anxiety, strong needs for someone else often misinterpreted as love, reassurance near a sense of safety when praised or given gifts that contribute to her belief in herself as a person of high status, if only for a moment or a few days.

The power of the eating disorder is not complete. Feelings of dread, the need to isolate because she is apprehensive about being with others penetrate the emotional blocks created by the eating disorder. She can be inconsistent in her relationships with others and inconsistent, even erratic, in her ability to concentrate or maintain interest in her activities.

True Story of Personal Growth Inspiration through a Relationship with Two Pomegranate Trees

A woman has two pomegranate trees. She planted them in her garden many years ago. She watched them grow from tiny saplings. After four years they gave her a few pomegranates. The following three years they each gave her about 20 large red pomegranates.

As the trees continued to grow they produced more but increasingly smaller fruit. The branches grew thin with many frail sub branches.
