I definitely believe recovery is possible. I know it is possible. Just yesterday my client reported “I never knew if I could be free but now I am.” She was referring to her past eating disorder and speaking about the freedom of the eating disorder talk and thoughts that used to consume her mentally. Unfortunately, not everyone recovers, but the possibility is there.
Meredith Stokke MC, LPC, NCC shares her feeling about recovery on her blog Food For Thought, http://www.meredithstokkencc.blogspot.com/. I highly suggest reading her post on recovery. She presents an open and honest answer.
