Yes, I feel you can recover from an eating disorder. Recovery is a lifetime process one day at a time. Patient must continue regular care and recovery groups often for a lifetime, and “cure” means staying connected and helping others. Recovery from any addiction is a remitting and relapsing daily challenge. Knowing when to ask for help is the key and staying connected is what makes help possible. “Cure” is really just surrendering, forgiving, helping others, and strong safe coping mechanisms.Life is not black and white, it is a happy in-between grey.
