An eating disorder is not a phase or a choice. Eating disorders are not about will power or lack of motivation. Suffering from an eating disorder can be very lonely and isolating. It is common to feel trapped, overwhelmed, scared, and ashamed.
Trying to get help can be a time of stress and anxiety. Making the decision to seek treatment can be intimidating and scary. It is important to know that with treatment, recovery is possible at any age. Starting treatment for an eating disorder is a powerful first step to reclaiming control over your life. The decision to start treatment is one of the most difficult steps in recovery. Many people experience mixed emotions at this stage.
