Sexual Encounters as Part of Bulimic Episode

Body Image, Self Love, Self Respect and Tenderness

Developing a healthy respect for your body is part of eating disorder recovery.  The words are rather directive and cold, don't you think?  But the meaning is anything but.  I got a big reminder of this yesterday when I looked at the close up of the x rays of my lungs using the most up to date technology with a pulmonary specialist.
