  • That was a perfect reply, made me feel less lonely just by hearing that someone knows what I’m talking about-and articulated it far better than I can 🙂
    And it’s helpful to know that there are others and there are ways of finding those people, and to have that hope to hold onto, so thank you so much!

    I would love to hear about resources if…Read More

  • Hey all 🙂
    I’m wondering if anyone has any advice about this…
    I was in residential treatment for an eating disorder this past year for a bit, and have been in PHP/IOP for the past couple of months.
    I haven’t been in treatment with anyone frum, so while I can chat with my res friends in general, there are certain things they don’t get. But…Read More

    hey, I’ve been off line for the past little bit, only just saw this… still interested if you’re interested in sharing 🙂

    Thank you

    Unfortunately don’t have access to a therapist right now, been working on that, but as of yet…
    just working on survival

    Thank you
    Nice to see other people know what I’m talking about, just wish someone could tell me what to do… oh well 🙂

    undecided started the topic Parent with ASD in the forum Autism Spectrum

    Hi,
    I’m wondering if anyone here has experience with a parent on the spectrum, especially if that parent is not diagnosed.

    I guess I’m just curious how it impacted you, and how you deal with it.
    Did you ever bring it up to your parent? If so, did it help anything?
    How do you reconcile the impact with knowing that everything was probably…Read More

    Hi, sorry to bring up an old topic…

    Its been 3 months of trying to fake it to make it and all that good stuff…
    And it’s not working.

    How do you survive when you’re back in the place where every single thing is a memory waiting to come to the forefront, where you can’t pull out of a flashback by telling yourself that you’re safe because…Read More

    Thank you.

    But what about when there are no other options? While this person knows going back is not a good thing and is doing everything she can to avoid going back, it doesn’t seem like there’s a choice.

    What then? Is she supposed to just numb again in order to survive? Feeling feelings is good and being able to is wonderful, but what about…Read More

  • Thank you so much for this topic!

    I’m wondering though-you say accept and respect your body, as opposed to trying to shrink it/diet/etc-part of respecting it means taking care of it properly, and that can mean saying no to when you want to eat unhealthy foods/for reasons other than physical hunger.

    Is there a place, then, for eating unhealthy…Read More

  • Thanks for the validation  🙂

    Realizing that it doesn’t actually make a difference if it’s bad or not, I’m not going to get the help that I need, so just suck it up and deal…

  • t

    Thank you for your response, and for sharing about yourself. I hope you’re doing okay and on the road to recovery…

    You’re right, only I can make that decision and only I can make the choice to move forward and to have a life that doesn’t revolve around food and exercise and all that.

    I guess I’m not really asking if it’s bad enough. I’ve…Read More

  • Thank you

    It’s something we’ve discussed in the past-why I don’t believe it’s real or bad enough or whatnot.

    But actually put therapy on pause a couple of weeks ago, given financial issues, and now I’m kind of in my own, and wondering if it’s really all that bad or if I’m just going to stay like this and be fine as is…

     

  • Hi,
    I hope it’s okay if I put this here; I wasn’t sure if it warranted making another topic, as I suppose it fits under this one, but I didn’t want to derail a topic either. So, my apologies if this is misplaced in any way!

    I know the DSM definition of each type of eating disorder, both DSM 4 and 5. I know what the literature has to say about it,…Read More

  •  

    But you didn’t answer the question 🙂

    Happy to hear you’re doing well, along with the ups and downs. Definitely hear you on the trying to be okay with the less busy days…

    BH I’m ok. Struggling a bit, but not enough that it’s noticeable to others, so at least that. Trying to get back into the job search, beH something will turn up…Read More

  • Been quite a while since I’ve been here,  and a while since you posted this, but if still relevant…

    How’s it going by you? Found anything to do in the interim?

  • I’m going to assume that was aimed at me 😉
    Thank you @chayasatt for your response.

    To respond to your first point, about me being partially anonymous. I’m not worried so much about that, as the only way I wouldn’t be anonymous is if I were to reveal to the client/whoever else who I am. I’m assuming you mean that if such a scenario were to arise…Read More

  • Thank you, @chavy for your input! I agree that there has to be a way; I’m just trying to figure out what that way is 🙂

    I’m not worried so much about someone figuring out who I am; I’m fairly skilled at obscuring my identity. As you say, the issue is really how to deal with a situation in which I end up communicating with a client on a forum…Read More

  • Hey @GreatLuck, those are some tough emotions and thoughts to be dealing with…

    And also completely normal; clients often have strong feelings for/about their therapists and wanting their attention. Therapy is a unique relationship, and often it’s the first time that you are receiving that kind of attention and attunement to your needs, which…Read More

  • Hey, I hope I’m putting this in the right place, my apologies if not…

    Where to begin? I’d say the title of this topic says it all, but as much as I like to think that everyone knows what I mean, probably better if I actually phrase the question fully 😉

    When it comes to mental health, I’ve been fortunate enough to be on both sides of the…Read More
