Support Your Eating Disorder Recovery after Hospitalization

Support Your Eating Disorder Recovery after Hospitalization
Rescued from eating disorder emergency

After her emergency six week hospitalization for eating disorder recovery Bethany asked me if bringing her home living space into order will help her stabilize.  To me, it sounds as if her emergency escort to the hospital was a rescue mission, and that she is lucky she the medical team saved her life.

Now it's time for her to take over and rescue her own life.  That's true for everyone with an eating disorder. The big questions are when to start? what to do? how to start?

Reality of eating disorder in-patient treatment


A wonderful, honest, detailed and accurate description of what it's like to go through an eating disorder in-patient experience is a gift to anyone with an eating disorder.
 
Molly Freedenberg shared her eating disorder recovery viewpoint.Her post dispels myths and fantasies about early recovery. I'm especially glad that her vivid examples make clear that in-patient or residential treatment is the beginning, not the end of recovery work.

What eating disorder recovery and health looks like at a family dinner.


Health and recovery support by the family involves behaving reasonably and practically with a powerful undertone of love and respect at during fammily meals. Family and friends show a glad willingness to listen to others and have confidence that they can passionately disagree. Everyone is certain that, right or wrong, everyone in the family loves and will stand by everyone else.

Meaning of "Fully Recovered" from an eating disorder



A thirty-three year old man wrote to me saying he had been a binge eater most of his life and now was fully recovered. Food has been a non issue for two years.

Of course, I am glad he is happy with the strides he has made in his life. But his post got me to thinking about what recovery means.


I have been working since 1980 with people who have and who have had eating disorders.  People have many different attitudes and definitions of being fully recovered.
