Food is the only thing that I can control in my life.

Food has been a way to cope with your emotions for as long as you can remember. Any time you struggled with change, new expectations, or life transitions, food was there as a reliable outlet. Restricting food makes you feel confident and in control.

But you are hiding your eating patterns from others. Feelings of shame overcome you and isolate you from everyone who loves you.

Just start eating more.

It’s easy to see that your eating behaviors are different from others around you, but you have no idea why. You tell yourself, “I can eat normally”, but struggle and fall to impulses to starve, binge, and purge.

Reaching out for support just backfires and leaves you feeling alone and misunderstood.

You are not alone.

Eating disorders are one of the least talked about problems in our American culture. Many people do not reach out for professional help because they do not see the connection between eating disorders and life problems.

There is hope and recovery is possible!
