Catch 22 in Getting Eating Disorder Treatment

helping-handReaching for Help

Calling or thinking of calling for help in getting eating disorder recovery can put you in an excruciating dilemma. I hope this dilemma doesn't prevent you from reaching out.

Positive Opportunity

Here’s how how the dilemma reveals itself.

Bias Confession from an Eating Disorder Specialist

With or without an eating disorder, you live your life based on your agenda with your values leading the way.

My Bias

However, I am not neutral. I want, with all my heart, for you to live a long healthy life. I want you to be well, to have love, joy, satisfaction, confidence and a genuine liking for yourself as you proceed onward to a feisty, interesting and healthy old age. I especially do not want you to break your own heart.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from Bulimia or Anorexia? Part 3

What does it take to Heal from Bulimia or Anorexia? Healing from anorexia and bulimia requires development along all seven points I described in my last post. But what does it take to actually heal? And why does this healing take a long time? When I went back to college after a 13-year absence from academia, UCLA gave me a yellow piece of paper that listed my required courses. When I completed everything on the list UCLA would grant me a degree in psychology. The sheet was 81/2 x 11 inches. I tacked it on the wall above my desk and set to work. Every four months I checked off three classes. It took me three years to work through that one sheet of paper and qualify for my first diploma. Below is a short list of developmental tasks that can take several or many years to move through. Still, like my yellow sheet on the wall, the list can inspire a person to keep on keeping on. Perhaps, most importantly, the list confronts a person with realistic goals when her mind starts making excuses and rationalizing false beliefs.
