I'm just a day into this site, was directed here by my doctor. I'm not trying to loose weight, but rather recover from an 18 year old eating disorder. I know there are places just for that on the interwebs, but most are very triggering to me.
My short term goals at this point are very modest
A) don't die
B) stay out of inpatient therapy
I'm 30, American, married and living overseas. Most support networks I've found exclude me on different levels, some of my own making...not speaking the language of the country I'm in. Being so damned old for a young person's disease. Kids. Being too far away to attend meetings.
Anyhow, I'm really hoping to find a kindred spirit, or a group of them here. I hope I'm in the right place, because I love everything about this place so far.
I am very serious in my quest for some kind of normalcy (also:staying alive) but I'm not at a point where I can do this alone yet.
My goal is not everyone's and I hope I'm not making anyone uncomfortable being here. I'm 18 years eating disordered and finally making the effort, with a whole lot of help, to be healthy and live.
