Eating Disorder Symptoms of All or None Tendencies: understand and heal

tight jadeIn eating disorder recovery you develop the ability to contain your impulses. You reveal yourself and engage with the world though speech and action, gradually and with thoughtfulness and consideration for yourself and your environment.

If you suffer from an eating disorder and even if you have some recovery you have developed an all or none perspective in your attitudes about eating and much more. You are familiar with feelings of excitement, anticipation, expectation and find uncertainty hard to bear.

Displaying Your Gifts - Or Not. Gracian #2

Baltasar's second maxim is two words: Character and Intelligence.

 

He goes on to say the these are poles your inherent talent spins on and that's what displays your gifts in this world. How might these poles relate to you and your eating disorder recovery?

If you have an eating disorder, and especially if you have maintained it for years, you know you've had to use great intelligence to keep it going. 

Perfection: What a Start! Gracian Series #1

Please remember, I haven't read Baltasar Gracian in advance!  We are doing this exploration together. His first maxim is so loaded and even possibly triggering for a person with an eating disorder.  But we will take them as we find them and see what happens.

#1 All has reached perfection, and becoming a true person is the greatest perfection of all.


Wow. The issue of perfection is the first item out of the box.

If you are in the thick of an eating disorder you know that finding fault with yourself is a constant issue.

Self Help for You and Me: Let's Go!

In the early years of my eating disorder recovery work the emotional pain I experienced was intolerable.  Yet I had to tolerate it to heal.  I was in therapy three times a week.  I went to 12 step meetings every day and sometimes three times a day if the days were bad.  I did physical, emotional and psychological exercises that people told me had helped them.  I was on the phone with outreach calls - both calling and being called.  I worked every avenue of recovery I learned about, some more helpful than others.

One of the ways that assured me and helped me build a base from which to recover I want to share with you on a regular basis via this blog. I hope you follow along and participate as much and as often as you like.
