I DO NOT HAVE AN EATING DISORDER - Page 70
My counsellor’s diagnosis (or whatever you’d call it) that I was not typically anorexic was very confusing to me. I could still hear that a big part of me believed that everyone was overreacting, that I really didn’t have an eating disorder, I just had a really fickle appetite. But after working so hard for a year (at that point) to try to accept the idea that I might actually have an ED, I didn’t exactly need new excuses. I think what she was getting at was need to really examine my motivations in order to come up with CBT exercises that would be useful.
Therapy. Confusing. Important, life-changing, but frequently confusing.
