"I battled ED for 9 destructive years. I made the choice to get help because I knew that if I didn't I would loose everything I love in this world and could possibly lose my life. I chose love, freedom from a sickness that controlled me, and above all life!"
"I am now ready to go back to my life. My REAL life! I am so excited to swim for my college and finish my senior year. I am ready to conquer what is ahead. You guys gave me my life back and I want to thank you for everything you have done for me."
"My sense of my Self was buried and trapped in my eating disorder. A day without restricting or purging was not a life I had known. As I began treatment, I had to unpack my thoughts and feelings of the past as well as the present. Although being extremely difficult, processing my life and my whole being helped me mourn the passed traumas and struggles and move forward in my life."
"I am a little over 2 years abstinent. I have a job that I love, I am fully self-supporting and I'm learning how to live life on life's terms. It's scary and hard sometimes, but I would NEVER trade my best day in my disease for the worst day in recovery."
"By connecting & aligning my spirit with the spirit of something greater than myself I was able to experience a deep surrender of my ideas & belief systems and move through resistance and into acceptance. I became able and willing to look at my body with out believing in the interfering judgments of my mind. Feeling my body from within initiated my healing process towards the road to recovery."
"I now look forward to everything that awaits me ahead. Now when I smile, my joy comes from a real place!"
