Recovery Isn’t Perfect And I’m OK With That!

38 years battling an eating disorder of many shapes and sizes brought me to my 7th attempt at treatment. Hard to believe this part of the journey started 6 months ago when I entered Rosewood. So incredibly grateful for the staff putting up with me and guiding me towards recovery when I wasn’t sure it was possible. Also thankful and blessed for the many wonderful life long friends I made along the way. Today I am 6 months without a drink. Nearly 5 months purge free and almost 6 months without a cigarette. I still struggle with getting all my meals in, but recovery isn’t perfect and I am OK with that! I am going to celebrate the successes, not beat myself up over the negatives.
