Week 28: Where Would I Be....

Where would I be without my arch nemesis and former best friend, ed? I'm not really sure.  I know that despite hating having to battle this disorder, I've learned a lot about myself in the process, things that I might never have learned otherwise.  While working through this nasty little situation, I have gotten in touch with my emotions and feelings in ways I never would have been able to do otherwise.

I hate this ed.  I hate how it's turned food into a mortal enemy.  I hate how it's sucked the joy out of eating.  I hate how self-conscious it's made me.  I wouldn't wish an ed on anyone.  It sucks the will to live from every fiber of your being.  Only because I am working my @$$ off with a kick @$$ team am I making the progress (however slow at times) I'm making.

So where would I be without it?  A heck of a lot happier, that's for sure.


  1. Im new to this site and I appreciate the postings. I hate ED as well for turning evey meal into a battle. Most of the time I have to tune out during mealtime. ED has definately changed my life forever.

    1. Welcome! I'm glad you can appreciate the postings. I think the only thing I like worse than ED is depression, as both make every moment a battle. The good news is that recovery from both IS possible, and that change can end up being a positive one once we're ready! Thanks for commenting, and happy reading!


So? What do you think?
