What is one thing you learned from your ED experience?

I think one of the big things that i learned was new (and appropriate) ways to cope ...which really has helped with the loss of my mom and father in law (only a few months apart). If i hadn't learned what i did I would have been a wayyyy bigger mess than i was.

I have learnt that I am a poor loser.

Sad but true but at least it is a lesson learnt. Still need to learn how to change that.

I haven't been posting much because of a huge backslide.

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"

I put the "D" in lysdexia

Sanity is a cozy lie.

I've learned more about the people around me. People who are true friends and supportive and those that could care less and have actually hinered(Sp) my recovery, same goes with family..

I'm sorry you're having such a hard time Cindermella! HUGS!

I totally agree too on learning who your true and supportive friends are.

learning who I really am--I remember for a long time I was lost in the ED and scared to be without it because it was pretty much my identity and I thought I would be "lost" without it but after I recovered, I realized it was completely the other way around; I had lost myself & my personality to the ED and I had to find myself again

I learned that I am stronger than I think. To this day, I still think recovering from the ED was the most difficult thing I have done, even more difficult than parenting DD, who is a high needs child so being a SAHM is no piece of cake with her. Sometimes when I've faced things I felt were impossible (such as writing my masters thesis), I would tell myself writing and defending a thesis was nothing compared to ED recovery and not nearly as scary. Most of the time, it has worked for me!

Let's see...well, I feel as though I am still new in my "recovery", even though health-wise, I appear "recovered". But my thoughts and feelings are still there, still the same. But what I have learned...I know...I have learned what is really important in my life, and that doesn't include my ED. My kids, my husband, my family, my work..those things are important to me, and my ED was just jeopardizing those.

I learned that I am a much stronger person than I ever gave myself credit for.
