“As someone who is recovered, I’ve often wished I could bottle the feeling of freedom from an eating disorder and give it as a gift to someone who is still sick. Just for a day. I’d let the person wake up without a single eating disorder thought or plan in her head and walk around all day like that.
He could pass a mirror and not have a meltdown.
She could have a cupcake and then have another one if she wanted it without feeling guilt or touching her stomach. She could stop after one or two cupcakes and not feel the experience won’t be complete until a box of a dozen is empty. She could visit the bathroom afterwards but only because nature called, not her eating disorder.
She could receive a phone call with bad news and give herself time to let it sink in and formulate a plan, knowing that she can handle it.
He could lay his head down that night, knowing that his recovery was worth fighting for and possible to achieve.
She would begin to understand what I think is one of the biggest secrets and surprises about recovery: it has so little to do with food.
It’s really about learning life lessons that everyone needs to know.”"
