Relapse after long period of recovery

I've been in recovery for a year and was doing really well, I had a few slip ups but over last 3 months I feel I have started going backwards, I now am terrified to have too much food in the house again and am reverting back to a fully functioning bulimic, I'm trying to keep structured eating going but still end up binging, any tips?

Hi there!

Firstly, congratulations for your long period of recovery - you may have slipped up recently - but that can not take your achievements away from you!

Do you have any idea why you have started reverting back to binging and purging? If you can figure this out, you will be able to plan your route forward...

Did you start restricting your food? Even thinking about it? Maybe go on a diet? Have you got any added stress in your life at the moment?

Try your best to get to the bottom of it! Let me know what you discover and I will help you out with any advice I can!

Speak soon!
