Chances are if you’ve stumbled upon this page, you’re like me. Searching for answers, help, validation, recovery from an unhealthy relationship with food, body image. Other wise you would not be here. Maybe you still tell yourself , you’re fine and don’t have a problem, but looking for recovery blogs/ sites is not normal. Or, perhaps you know you have a problem with food, exercise, restriction, body image and you want to RECOVER.
I have been there, in both camps. I am in recovery from a restrictive eating disorder. I developed an unhealthy relationship with food, exercise and my body when I was 15. This “hitchhiker” took the driving seat of my life until I entered my recovery journey at 32. I am not fully recovered but I consider myself well on the way, 1 year in. I believe full recovery exists and is possible for all. I intend to use lessons learnt to Quash the stigma of eating disorders and document things I wish I’d known.
So now we’ve got the background, if you’re thinking about recovery, in recovery, want to help someone recover or just curious about Eating disorders welcome to QUASH the STIGMA NOT FAT!
