Many people I have seen with eating disorders feel they are not sick enough, but what is sick enough? Being admitted X times? Being Zlbs? Having a bmi of A? There is no sick enough. When you reach that goal, another will magically appear.
If you don’t choose recovery, you choose suicide because effectively it is killing yourself when not eating enough. No matter how strong your eating disorder is, you CAN be stronger with the right support.
I won’t say recovery is easy because its not, I wish I could click my fingers and be recovered but unfortunately it doesn’t work like that. Recovery is YOUR decision each day and it’s therefore your responsibility.
I know that is a lot of pressure to live with but recovery, it is the happiest decision to make. Never give up on yourself because your eating disorder is a monster in disguise.
Everytime you want to give up remember that you’re gaining freedom, happiness, life, creativity, normality, YOURSELF back. Recovery may feel it has negatives but truly, there are none because it is saving your life.
So today, tomorrow, every day - don’t give up because your life is at risk here. Don’t let your eating disorder consume more than it already has. You are worth fighting

I wanted to apologize for my lack of posting recipes. I’ve been trying to finish up the school year. Once I’m done, I’ll try to AT LEAST post one a week!
