I haven’t written a blog post in a little while, so I thought it was time for a little catch up!
I have been out of therapy now for two weeks, but each week I have set aside an hour to do my own therapy. This is where I reflect on the week and how it has been and go through anything that I would normally discuss at a CBT meeting.
During the past two weeks, I feel like I’ve taken a big leap forward in terms of recovery. It’s strange because I don’t really know what has changed, I just know that I’m naturally feeling comfortable in my own skin, and it’s a lovely feeling.
I’m guessing that all of the work I’ve been putting into changing my behaviours and altering my mindset is all starting to pay off.
I came across a twitter post yesterday that asked what word would define 2018 for each follower. I’ve chosen the word ‘healing’ for my word.
Healing my relationship with my body, healing my negative attitudes towards food and healing my thoughts towards myself. I feel like recovery isn’t the right word for me anymore, because I’ve eliminated most disordered behaviours. I just need time now to heal the scars that it left behind.
