Relapse and Easter

I'm relapsing into my eating disorder again and Easter couldn't have come at a worse time. I don't know how to deal with it. I've been fasting for x hours and when I finally eat something I know I'll completely resign into my bulimia. All I'm seeing is the part of me that needs my ed because I've gained so much weight due to medication and illness over the year since my last relapse.

Re: Relapse and Easter

Sorry to hear that Easter is making things worse on that front, but it's good that you're aware and seeing the signs of it, @The-red-centaur. Sometimes if we catch ourselves on a pattern early enough we can change our environment so we don't slide any further. Do you have any methods or mantras you've been using to help you prior to Easter? Sending you love Heart

Re: Relapse and Easter

@The-red-centaur Hope you are feeling better. Weight gain is such pits. I put on so much due to medication too. I have been walking for a few days and feel better in myself. It is a slow process. Hope you have a good day.
