Dating eating disorder Chat with dirty girl online
I also know how to maintain my friendships and activities along the way rather than dropping everything for a guy (like I used to do). Recently, in response to my going on and on about a guy—my thoughts, my feelings, and my perspective—my therapist said, “Jenni, it’s not all about you.” Her honesty hurt my feelings, but she was right.In a relationship, people are involved, and I can’t always get my way.I became more assertive—sometimes swinging the pendulum too far (to just plain rude)—before finding balance.I practiced speaking my truth, knowing that it is okay to disagree with others.True progress began when I joined a therapy group for people with eating disorders and became aware of my bad habit of sabotaging potential relationships by zeroing in on differences.
What I I wanted years ago isn’t what I want at all.Enter Adam, Eric, and Steve—also known as “The Policeman,” “Superhero,” and “Casanova”—as well as a long list of other guys.(My friends and I tend to give nicknames to those we date.) Surely, one of the most challenging aspects of my Ed-free existence is dating—real men, this time.In therapy, I was taught to treat my eating disorder like a relationship rather than an illness or a condition, and for almost ten years I have written about divorcing “Ed” (an acronym for Eating Disorder).I used to wonder what I would write about after he was out of the picture.
