I want to just take a minute to say that as of today, I am 5 days purge free.
This may mean nothing to some people, but for someone who found it difficult for a long time to get through a few hours without trying rid of food, this is huge progress for me.
I don’t want to sound big headed or conceited, but this has just completely made my day. I can now honestly had on heart say I am on my way to recovery, albeit slowly.
Having struggled for so long, I can finally see a teeny tiny glimmer of hope for myself. It’s so easy to say to other people to keep going on and not to give up but not take that advice yourself. But if we really put our minds to it, we truly overcome our challenges and demons.
Progress is progress, and small victories like this start the paving stones to recovery.
