Recovery email/texting buddy

My support system is super small and no one I know has an eating disorder or really knows how to talk to me about it except my therapist. Would anyone be interested in maybe doing a sort of digital pen pal thing where we encourage each other and check up daily? I'm a 20 year old girl who's weight-restored, but still struggling with restriction and bulimia and have been trying for about a year to self-recover but am now in weekly outpatient therapy. If you're interested in chatting, leave a comment and we can email :)

Hi Emily_grace95,

I would recommend you look into the NEDA Navigator program, as well! NEDA can connect you with a volunteer who has first-hand experience with eating disorder recovery, and you can keep in touch with them. The information page about the program is here: http://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/neda-navigators .

I hope this helps and that you find the support you're looking for via the forums and other NEDA resources! Good luck! :) Please keep us updated.

Hoping to chat!

Hello, I am also 20 years old and in the process of recovery from anorexia. I am still struggling with body dysmorphia, restriction and binge/purging. I don’t really have anyone to talk to regarding my ED and if you are still looking to chat I would love to have someone to talk to so I can hold
myself accountable and just have someone who can relate to the struggles I am going through! hopefully we can chat!!

Happy to support you all

For those of you in your twenties, I am happy to support you all since my episodes started as a very young teen, then later when I was about twenty, then another bad bout in my early forties, and then my recent episode (I am 55 years old). I would love to share my struggles and wisdom!
