''Food is bad. I can't have food. Ed tells me so. Ed is more powerful
then me and so Ed must be right.'' These are words I hear all the time
from people who have experience of an eating disorder or disordered
eating, whether that be clients I see in psychotherapy, support groups,
consultations, training or via email.
There is nothing bad, dirty
or guilty about having to eat food in order to survive and remain
healthy. It is part of nature. The only 'thing' that tells you this is
that of the voice of Ed, your eating disorder. Ed thinks s/he/it has the
upper hand, that s/he/it is stronger and more powerful than you. Yes,
that may seem so at the moment, especially if you are struggling so much
with these difficulties.
However, the eating disorder is like the bully
we see in workplaces, in the school playground, in the street outside.
The bully puts on a facade of being powerfu…
Take time for you. Self-care. Relax. Get some sleep. Have a bath. Do
something you enjoy. Talk to someone you like. Spend time with you dog
