The Life Plate

Eating disorders keep people trapped in a world of darkness that is restricted yet takes up all of the space on their life plate. It’s been my experience that when people begin to heal, they rediscover who they are.

Trust and Recovery

Be a Snowflake

The gifts that sobriety has given me are more than I could have dreamed they would ever be! I could tell you all of the “things” that I now have in my life, but that is not what makes me happy today. Today, I know exactly who I am and love myself-that is the greatest gift of all!

Learning from ED

By realizing the only thing that I actually have control over is how I respond to those things has been a huge lesson for me to learn. Trusting the process, staying present in the moment, doing the next right thing for me, remembering to breathe, and reminding myself of all of these, is a huge part in letting go of the idea that I can control something other than my responses, and how I choose to see a particular situation.

ED Recovery in an Image Obsessed World

For someone navigating the recovery process, this culture we live in can be a nightmare, but that’s life. It’s impossible for anyone going through the recovery process to avoid triggers.
