10 Phases of ED Recovery

Got this from Izzy's blog, I thought it was a very accurate post and that I would share it with you as well.. I remember being at every one of these steps through my recovery, and they're all extremely difficult in their own way. But eventually, if you keep working at it, you'll get to 10!

I think the most difficult for me was probably 4, when I realized I was dying and hurting not only myself but everybody around me. Causing so much money to be spent, taking up their mental capacity and time, them being worried about me constantly (my parents). But I didn't want to do anything different, I didn't know how, I was comfortable in my behaviours, and I was just starting to realise how trapped I really was. 

7 was a very difficult step as well, since I was doing everything I needed to be doing physically but mentally I remained unchanged. And I felt like an absolute failure for not doing what my thoughts were telling me to. Like my inner sickness didn't match my outer appearance of recovery. 

I'm sure I could find a post from my blog from every single stage of this outline :) I won't do that of course, that would take too much time and I need to be studying! But maybe eventually I'll do that? :)

Which of these steps are you at? Which have you found most difficult?
