Motivation & Reasons to Recover from Anorexia: The Long Term Effects

 

IMG 0183

 

Everyone starts their recovery for their own reason. Mine eventually became that I couldn't stand being so cold all of the time. Never mind the Osteoporosis I developed at age 30, the Amenorrhea I had for 7 years, or that my hair was falling out. All of which were important and even urgent reasons to recover. But it was the feeling cold all the time (freezing really), and Raynaud's Syndrome (blue fingers and nose), that did it. I was sick and tired of having to take hot baths to warm up. 

I was also really very tired from the endless worry about what I was eating. Excessive exercise was tiring too. I was just tired. 

I could see that I was too thin, but I liked it. Sick, I know, but if you are reading this and you are suffering from Anorexia, you know exactly what I mean. Of course, at first, I didn't see that I was too thin. But after some treatment and a lot of serious talks from my sister, my colleagues, and friends, I could finally see it.

 

You can be thin, healthy, and happy or skinny, unhealthy or DEAD. The long term health effects of an ED are horrendous and it is the most deadly psychiatric disorder. So find YOUR reason to recover. 

If you are reading this and you think you have Anorexia or have been told you have it, think about this: Your recovery and road to good health can start right now. Right now, as you read this you are opening yourself to the hard facts of Anorexia, and to the choice of better health.  It starts right now. You can do it. You can do it and be thin, happy, and healthy. I did it and I am no better than you are. If I could recover so can you. 

I don't quantify recovery by numbers-weight, calories, etc., that's not my department. Your physician handles that side of it.  My focus is on your mental and emotional well being. Numbers cause a lot of stress and anxiety-my job is to help you manage your emotions, and mentally equip you with the tools you need to recover. I have coping strategies, techniques, and more that I know can work.

 

With the holidays coming up, I will work very hard to help you get through them. I offer much between session support by text, email, and phone. Before, during and after those holiday meals and gatherings. 

Please feel free to give me a call or send me an email to discuss your road to recovery. 908-500-7295 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
