More threads by Ashley-Kate

hello,
about 2 or 3 weeks ago i noticed that my behaviors that were more along the lines of bulimia were slowly decreasing and i was really happy cause i thought of that as a positive aspect but as my purging was becoming less present i was reducing enormously my food consumption to have completely ceased and i am quite worried to say the truth cause as i know my anorexic behaviors to me are very uncontrollable and as i fall into the patterns i feel that as many girls do the more you lose of weight the more you are losing the battle but the more you feel in control and i don't know how to break it and i am using my only moments of lucidity to say this because i feel i am already gone but i just hope some words of wisdom can catch me in my downfall.. cause at the moment i truly hesitate on what my true identity is , Ashley-Kate or anorexia .. i am scared and lost all at the same time
yours truly Ashley
 
Re: when you know youare losing it

I know it's hard to believe, but you are not this disease. You are suffering from it, struggling with it, but it is not you and you are not it. With a lot of hard, hard work and therapy you can get better, a day at a time.

This article is a good one:

I am more than this disorder

Janet's right, Ashley. You are you. The disease is the disease. The two of you are not the same.

Thank you, very good article. I guess, CBT will be practised regardless. Who on earth (or at least on Canadian earth) can afford psychodynamic therapy, I do not know. I went to "psychodynamic" therapy before and 10 sessions did not even get anything started. CBT will likely be more effective than modalities that require hundreds of hours. This is more of a practical/political issue, so sorry for the comment.
