Just wondering what your thoughts/experiences are....my best friend whose sister also had an eating disorder was the first to tell me about when a person develops an eating disorder they don't grow emotionally past the age when they developed an eating disorder- example: Her sister is 22 I think now and developed an ED when she was 16 and still acting very immaturely/childish.
Although I am mature in several ways, I find myself coping/dealing with things immaturely at times and wonder if it for the same reason. Did I not mature emotionally past the age when my ED first began (20). Not using this as an excuse, just wondering if it is a reason?
While reading a recovery book it talked about this and how eating disorders "stunt" emotional growth. What do you think/feel about this?
And for those of you who have recovered or who are near the end of your recovery do you feel this starts to digress if it applies to you?
