#5- Recovery is Possible
A client in recovery wishes you knew:
I never really believed in the concept of recovery. And while I’m not fully recovered, I’m so much further along than I ever dreamed possible. And while it’s been tough, my life is so much better without the clutches of my ED. I’m starting to believe that full recovery is possible. But if that scares you, hold on to the idea of getting “just a little bit better.”
Julie Duffy Dillon wishes you knew:
Recovery is possible for you. No matter how long you’ve been in throws of ED, no matter how tough it gets, no matter how dark it is, I believe in your recovery. I believe eating disorder behaviors deprive the brain of the nourishment it needs to feel hope and blocks the path to recovery. My job, as your dietitian, is to let you know I have plenty of hope for your recovery in my noggin. Your team believes this too and we will patiently walk beside you as you find your secure footing to recovery.
