Keep a Dream Journal to Speed Eating Disorder Recovery

Keep a Dream Journal to Speed Eating Disorder Recovery                                *
Why keep a dream journal?


Keeping a written record of your dreams is often part of eating disorder recovery work.  Clients do it dutifully, resentfully, awkwardly, enthusiastically. They forget to do it.  They can't do it because they can't remember their dreams. They are embarrassed to do it because the dreams are embarrassing.  Or they refuse to do it because the dreams are frightening.  Why do we need to keep a dream journal at all?  

Woman discovers she is a binge eater and now seeks help

Woman discovers she is a binge eater
This is such good news.


A woman wrote to me that, to her shock, she just discovered she is a binge eater. Her meals last as long as the movie she is watching. Her comfortable habit is to eat masses of food several times a day when she feels a little nervous. She rarely eats when she is hungry. She doesn't recognize hunger. But today she realized she was a binge eater. She is  looking for help.

I hope you can appreciate my gladness at her discovery. I'm not happy that someone has any form of an eating disorder. But when a person discovers that she is a binge eater, that discovery brings her the opportunity to gain health and happiness.

Eating disorder residential treatment: fantasies versus goals


A worried mother called me this morning deeply concerned about her 25 year old daughter. She's looking for a perfect eating disorder residential treatment program. The daughter compulsively overeats and is obese. My concern is that they don't seem to understand the difference between a goal and a fantasy.

Both mother and daughter are looking for an in-patient program that will get the young woman into recovery. They believe the right program will bring the daughter weight loss, a compulsive overeating cure and a happy life free of food compulsions
