Bulimia - Your Best Friend/Enemy
I felt like it was my friend for so long. Always there when I needed it. I could be selfish with it, be sick with it, yell at it, laugh it, hate it, need it and it was always there...
Now I want out and it's trying to hold on.
I am fighting it one day at a time.
I know exactly what you mean... Bulimia becomes a crutch that helps you walk through life... But in reality it helps life slip through your fingers... It allows it to get away without squeezing all the abundant joy out of it!
Then... When you decide enough is enough, is has become so ingrained in your brain that it feels impossible to stop...
But you can...
You can be healthy, happy, vibrant and completely bulimia free... I promise.
You need to remind yourself that it is a process... One small positive step at a time. Reading my site and researching bulimia - hearing other peoples stories, learning that you are not alone... These are all good steps... Just keep on in this direction.
Try to add one positive, happy thing into your day... Be it 5 minutes of 'time-out' to listen to your favorite music... Going to the beach, walking in the forest... Whatever you love doing... This is another little positive step that will help you become more positive about life.
Karen Phillips bulimia self help program is definitely worth a read... I know a number of people who say it has helped them hugely in the early stages of their bulimia recovery. To read my review of this bulimia self help program, click here.
Stay strong and remember... It is not where we stand, but the direction in which we face...
