fighting urges

A few negative things have been going on in my life the last few days. It's really not helping with my ED thoughts. I'm trying really hard to fight back the urges. I hope I can just fix a couple things that have happened and maybe I will feel better.

I empathize with you. It’s so

I empathize with you. It’s so easy to let the ED behaviors take over when you feel out of control of your life or your thoughts, or certainly when negative things happen. Sorry to hear you are having a rough time. I know that you are strong enough to get through. Please have hope that things will be ok and be kind to yourself.
