Remember when you worked at the San Diego Humane Society and sent a hopeless email to your therapist? You wrote, “I feel like I will never recover, and I hate myself for that.” Well, you will recover. You will become a mother. You will write a book. You will latch onto and love this awesome, messy, mundane life.

Recovery relies on learning. In order to recover from an eating disorder, we must learn new ways to think, learn new skills and learn new things about ourselves. To integrate this learning, we must be in a state of relative calm. We must also be in good physical health, feel safe and emotionally supported and be able to integrate new skills.

Thank you for helping me find my way with understanding that food was not my enemy. Thank you for helping me in the process of treatment. Thank you for helping me be strong enough to leave treatment. Thank you for all the hard work and amazing guidance. I appreciate everything.

When I finally committed to my treatment plan — I found recovery— without using alcohol to numb everything (alcohol makes for blurriness). I could fully focus on getting to know myself and what I really wanted in life. I began to deal with all those feelings that I was hiding from — feelings that kept me spinning in the painful cycle of mental illness.

We rise and set together each day. Sometimes if I’m awake in the early morning hours and worried about something with a quiet cup of coffee, I see you climb over the horizon. Then I know I can too. Even now, as I deal with life without binging, you are there, a reminder to rise each day no matter what comes.
