My Intention

My intention is to provide an account of my ongoing struggles and triumphs with TED (The Eating Disorder), not to imply that this is a replacement for profesional therapy (which I have had).

I have suffered from an Eating Disorder for the past 30 years. I went to therapy for about six months as an adult. I stopped going to therapy because, well, I thought, “I got this”. I can do this on my own – does this sound familiar. The ONLY thing I needed was for someone to give me direction by telling me what to eat, how to exercise, and what to think – then I could beat TED once and for all by myself. You may be thinking, well then you are not doing this on your own. Well, it made perfectly good sense to me. Welcome to my world, a world with TED. If you are or know someone with an eating disorder, you know that the thought processes of that person is somewhat out of whack, and in my case WAY OUT OF WHACK!

Most importantly, this is an outlet for me to learn to face TED head on and try to articulate my feelings, to help in my own recovery. If this blog speaks to you, then please follow along and we can do this journey together. It may even help enlighten those who don’t understand the affects that an eating disorder has.

About iltyp4u

I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Angel. On the surface I look very successful and happy. I have married my soul mate, I have one daughter and two beautiful grandchildren, and I own/operate a successful at-home business. But, I do have a skeleton in my closet and his name is TED. I know that many of you also have some form of this skeleton, and my hope is that in my recovery, I can help at least one other person through recovery. Who or what is TED you ask? TED is the name that I have given to my Eating Disorder. If you or someone you know suffers from an eating disorder, I hope that you/they find this blog helpful. Please check back for updates about my progress/struggles. Also, feel free to comment on your progress. Follow me on twitter: @iltyp4u Follow me on FB: www.facebook.com/triumphfromted
