Hello! I've just joined

Hi everyone,

I just joined after having dabbled with this awhile back, and not really getting involved or making the most of it. I went for clinical treatment a couple of years ago (after 25 years...) and I realised it was a start of a process. I did a lot of hard work, and it was painful, exhilirating, tiring, full of hope, insipiring...and, well, didn't leave me bulimia free. I have had recent relapses and I'm ready to let go and do something very different. Like many of you, I'm sure, I'm ready to live a life free of bulimia, but I can't yet imagine what that looks like. I'm welcoming the opportunity for openness and honesty and to really share - without fear of judgement. I already feel I'm in the right place, though I'm excited, frightened, nervous....all at the same time. I'm very much looking forward to hearing from you, learning, laughing, crying (likely!), pushing onward and through and breaking free. I'm going to try to blog most days and capture what's going on, but more importantly, to make sure I'm checking in and working on this, and learning from others. Feel free to say hello.

Welcome back :) You have done

Welcome back :)
You have done the right thing, stick to what the BHM tells you and I guarantee you will recover for good, even after all this time.
I was Bulimic 14/15 yrs and have only been on this site a year and consider myself 3 quarters of the way there. Somewhere I never thought I would be. It only happens if you really want it and since your back here you must really want it. And this time you WILL get it. Recovery.

All the best x

Hi, and welcome back. It's

Hi, and welcome back. It's just amazing taking that first step, since even that can be so hard. I've got through over 3 months of real recovery and I've never felt healthier. It took me a while to actually feel like this could be for life, but I truly believed I've turned a corner now and that lifelong recovery is in my grasp.

Wishing you all the best and good luck

Lea

Hi, thanks to you both. I

Hi, thanks to you both. I deeply appreciate it, and yes, I am ready. What I'm realising is that I have a very impulsive nature and I want things to be done...now. As a result, my behaviours haven't always been focussed on what's best for me in the future, and has affected my ability to adopt positive behaviours on a consistent level. I know this is going to take work - so, I'm making the time to do that. I want and need to hear other people's stories of recovery, and that some of the voices that rattle around in my brain are going to be silenced (and the comfort in a way of knowing that other people have gone through this too). I'm excited, I'm ready, I'm scared too - but that's ok. A pal once said to me about challenges 'if it was easy, everyone would be doing it' . It's all worth it. Thanks for the warm welcome.
