Hello. I am new to this site. I am 34 and my eating disorder began when I was 17. I am currently in recovery, but it is a rocky road. I have managed to improve most areas of my life. I sitll binge and purge but not like i used to. I have struggled with this disease for so long - feeling isolated and disgusting, like I don't belong in society. With continued counseling, however, I have begun to feel better about my disease and start to live a little and feel like a "normal" person (if there is such a thing). My husband of five years is struggling to understand this eating disorder. He often says that its in my head and that all I need to do is take control and get over it. He says that he often feels like heand our marriage comes second to my eating disorder. I need to explain it to him, but lack the words. Maybe because I don't want to face the words that I need to tell him to explain why I just can't "let it go". Any advice?
