My roof is my eating disorder

23rd April 2014

Written by a suffer:

The simplest way that I can describe myself is by likening me to a house. Somewhere in my footings there are cracks, which I believe happened in my childhood! Unfortunately numerous stressful and upsetting events exaggerated those cracks, my walls began to crumble and my roof fell in!

I believe the most effective way to start is by dealing with the issues in my past and therefore my secure my footings.

It would be pointless concentrating on my eating disorder (i.e. mending my roof) when in time the cracks in my footings would cause my roof to fall in again!
