Favorite Recovery Resource
- “Honestly it’s been BINGE; it’s been putting myself out there, because now I feel such a magnified sense of accountability to take care of myself and kind of be a role model.”
I went to the protests at the airport this week and that was incredibly moving to be a part of. It was so powerful and it reminded me of the inherent strength we all have when we connect as human beings and that we really can make a difference; our voices do matter. It also reminded me of the importance to find like minded people because your presence gets magnified. It’s a really powerful thing.
Definition of Recovery
Getting myself back, getting my brain back. Being able to be present and active in my life and having space for other relationships and interests and desires outside of the eating disorder.
