Support your own eating disorder recovery by taking a stand for all

"Today Trump responded to the millions who marched for women's rights this weekend by reinstating the global gag rule, which prohibits international organizations from receiving funding if they participate in abortion-related activities, making it harder for women worldwide to access reproductive healthcare." Center for Biological Diversity

I've been treating women for over 40 years who have a history of eating disorders So much of the underpinnings of an eating disorder involve fear, lack of personal power, isolation and dependency because nothing seems as reliable and safe as eating or not eating and controlling your body. Taking positive action with allies now is a way to discover personal power and a community that supports your being strong, empowered, healthy and fully alive 

Black Swan: Violence and Danger (5-8)

We don’t tend to think of the fragile and delicate as violent and dangerous.  We admire the grace and beauty of the butterfly with no fear. We see the white swan, fluttering beautifully or the sweet gossamer like beauty of Nina at her minimal breakfast, and we don’t fear them. We might even say that one egg and a half a grapefruit is a normal and appropriate food for such a light and delicate being.

Black Swan: Stealing (4-8)

I’m glad the Black Swan filmmakers included Nina’s stealing from the older ballerina, Beth. Stealing is often a component of an eating disorder. The person doesn’t steal because she has a criminal mind and seeks to earn her way in the world through theft.

Black Swan: Mother/Daughter Control Issues and Sexuality (3-8)

 

 

In the Black Swan, the character of Nina lives the emotional life and physical life of a child, dependent on her mother for care.  You see the bind they both are in. 

Nina’s mother treats Nina as a child.  She is not capable of functioning as an adult. To make realistic changes in this relationship, mother would need to treat Nina as an adult and Nina would have to rise to the occasion and become an adult.
