Right and Wrong: Your inner unicorn

Eating Disorders and Menopause

Symptoms of menopause raster Here is a brief look at a recent call I received from a 54 year old woman in menopause with a long term and unaddressed eating disorder. It's one of many I'm receiving lately from menopausal women. Some are more positive about getting help, but all seem oblivious to the role menopause is playing in their emotional and eating disorder lives.

Getting out of the People Pleasing Trap

Eagle Awesome strength 3386693324It's time to free yourself.

Eating disorders develop over time and create their own internal environment that becomes a full internal world with set pathways and few options. This means that you live your life based on the rules, routines, habits, perspective, thought processes and behaviors established by your eating disorder.

People pleasing, a well known phrase in the eating disorder community, becomes a way of life. You please others to get support, make them like you, avoid criticism, feel important and valuable because you are needed. 

Are you caught in a pattern of self sacrifice?

Modena ambulancePost inspired by Tracy's letter in comments.

When you push yourself to the breaking point to meet demands on your time and energy it’s time to both step back and step forward in new ways. The alternative is to collapse, an unacceptable outcome.
