Surviving ED — Taking Care of Myself As Part Of Recovery

April 8, 2011 Angela E. Gambrel

I am very grateful to hear that many people have been asking about me and wondering about the return of "Surviving ED." I have taken this time off to take care of myself during my ongoing recovery from anorexia. I didn't have a relapse and I am still at my healthy weight. However, I needed to take some time to care for myself because of some ongoing issues in my personal life. I have been struggling with a great deal of anxiety and depression because of these issues and felt it was best to take some time off from writing.Things have calmed down and I plan to return to writing "Surviving ED" starting May 6. I hope to be able to share with you the positive aspects of my ongoing recovery and encourage all of you to continue to fight to have lives free of eating disorders. Please feel free to leave suggestions for topics that you would like to see written about in this blog, for ultimately "Surviving ED" is for you, the readers.

Thank you all for your concern and patience during this trying time. I will see you in May!

Angela it is so nice to hear from you. A few of us who read your blog were worried about you. I'm glad to know that nothing really bad has happened. I like your blog because you are so honest about things and it's helpful to hear it from an adult woman. I've been battling anorexia and bulimia on and off for 13 years. Like you, my husband left because it was just too much for him to deal with. I remind myself that the road of life is a bumpy one. I look frward to your return.
