A New Chapter- Never Experienced Before


Tomorrow I have my assessment with an eating disorder clinic.
I am excited to be getting help and proud that I found the courage to ask for it. Yet above all I am terrified!! I have never seen eating disorder specialists. What if they think I am fine and say they can’t help? I know I am not but working on my own over the last year,  I have improved my symptoms. What if I come across as more able to cope than I am?

Accepting help is not a strong point of mine,  it has always been far safer to do it all alone, life that is. I learnt to rely on and trust my husband but not really much beyond that. Now I really need outside help and being vulnerable is scary. I have got as far as I can by myself,  it feels like this next step is the only way forward. I could cry I’m so nervous. I will blog about how it all goes and what happens in the process. Wish me luck.

    Try not to get too anxious, I’m sure it will be fine and there will be help available for you. You should be really proud of yourself for seeking it. Let us know how you get on, I’ll be thinking of you.

    I took that step almost two years ago, and it was the best thing for me. I too thought I wasn’t “disordered enough” for treatment but I was, and I needed it desperately. I’m still in recovery and slip up often but I’ve also made great progress mentally. I wish you healing and hope.
