I am a survivor too. Funny how these things can all go together; anorexia, perfectionism, and anxiety disorders. I wish you the best of luck with staying healthy on both/all fronts!

Yep. I had full blown anorexia when I was 17. That stage has past and I've survived, but it comes back every so often when my anxiety is at is ts peak. I battle to eat when I'm anxious because it works on my stomach and can end up living on not much food at all. This has been happening lately since I've been abroad. Sometimes I worry about my physical state causing more problems and i feel powerless to stop the downward spiral. I feel that I have little control.

Yes, although I can't say I'm fully recovered. There are still issues with body image and abstaining from food, especially when I'm anxious or depressed. It really has a way of digging its claws in, doesn't it? I've begun to accept the fact that recovery isn't linear- that there will be days of falling back into old patterns and I'm learning to forgive myself for that. As odd as this may sound, I'm also working on forgiving myself for eating and staying healthy.
