First time I've admitted this publically

hello all, I'm new to this forum. I sent my first PM a few minutes ago, and this is really the first time I've ever been open about this illness which I've suffered for nearly 10 years.

In some ways i've not wanted to recover, I can't explain what I mean by that. Does anyone else feel it to? I do want to recover and not have this dominate my life, but at times it's easier not to, and I've almost enjoyed the binges. I'm so embarrassed saying that as I know the damage it does, and how that in itself is just not normal. I've read 60 pages of the manual, which all makes sense. I'm looking forward to reading the rest though.

If anyone would like to be friends and share, advise in how to recover i'd be so open to that. My name is Jenny and I live in Dubai.

thanks so much, xxxx

Hi jenny, welcome to the

Hi jenny, welcome to the site. I'm sure many of us can relate to not wanting to recover, with the easier way of coping being our destructive EDs. It's really tough being in recovery, but I hope you'll find your way through it. There are some amazing people here to help you on your way.
All the best.
