A few ideas but no easy fix
on 29 June 2013
As a sufferer of eating disorders particularly Binge Eating Disorder for a very long time i was hopeful after reading reviews that this book might have something to it that others have not and what I have found is this -
-This book helped me to feel understood, that I am not alone and that I am able to reflect on the habits created with this disorder and why.
-That it will take all of me to break these habits and finding distractions will only go so far right now.
- There are many way to find other things to do but eat but the only thing that will break the cycle is will power, determination and hope and knowing that a every day ends another new chance will come to try a little more.
This book is not the answer but it can give so many ideas on things to do rather than eat, it gives understanding and acceptance and I know that many will read and keep it out of the way until they are really ready to try harder but its a book I know I shall keep in my recovery box to help bring to life better ways of coping but only when I feel that I have enough strength to try.
Good luck to all who need this, its well worth a try but its not a magic wand. x
