Inspiring, Supporting, Guiding You Through Your Healing Recovery Journey
For a long time I believed that I was “broken” and that there was something innately wrong with me.
I believed that it was all my fault; however I also believed that I was a victim and I blamed everyone around me.
I believed that I was bad, that I was damaged goods and I totally identified myself with the eating disorder.
Do you identify yourself with the eating disorder? Probably. Ever go to a meeting or therapy group and introduce yourself like,
“Hi, I’m Lauren and I am a bulimic and anorexic… oh yeah, did I mention I am severely depressed and possibly suicidal? I’m anxious, have panic attacks and suffer from PTSD from a horrid rape I experienced. Oh yeah and I was diagnosed and treated for bipolar once and I would punish myself by being an over-exerciser. Don’t forget I am a cocaine addict too.”
Haha, okay I’m trying to have a sense of humor here…but seriously.
This weekend marked the release of my very first ebook, called Inspiring Recovery: A Healing Workbook to Inspire + Support Full Eating Disorder Recovery!!!!
Yayyy for you because you can get it right now, completely FREEEE!!!
But first, let me tell you about how the workbook, Inspiring Recovery came to be. Sit back, relax and sip a cup of your favorite hot beverage because this is going to be a long one!
For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed collecting inspirational quotes and affirmations, meaningful poems, random sayings and motivational writings that are helpful. I love to find fresh new eating disorder quotes that really make me think or help me shift my perspective about myself and life.
Last week when I was having a session with one of the women I was mentoring, she asked me a question that really made me think…
“How did you learn how to let others support you in your eating disorder recovery?”
It really took me back a second, because I suppose in recovery from eating disorders, we talk about “reaching out for support” but many women simply don’t know how to do this.
We consciously KNOW we need to reach out when we are feeling the urge to use the eating disorder, but we DON’T.
I HAVE BEEN cleaning out my house this past week and it has felt so good!!!
Cleaning out the closets, desks, and basement just getting rid of things that I don’t need and organizing the rest. I’ve taken bags upon bags to Goodwill, given bags to my family and I will be donating the rest of my baby items to a woman who is expecting soon and doesn’t have any baby items to speak of and her baby’s dad took off.
It feels so good to get it out of my home and also to give it all away!!
The Universe responds to our giving – it creates a space of love and gratitude for when you give you also will receive.
You inspire me with your courage, your determination and your commitment to overcoming the eating disorder. Not only overcoming but believing and truly understanding what it means to be free.
You inspire me because you don’t and won’t ever give up in your recovery from eating disorders.
You inspire me because
