A letter to my eating disorder. This brave client gave us permission to share her beautiful and empowering letter to show you how possible it is to find yourself through recovery. The eating disorder voice can be loud and may at times feel like a friend. But when we start our recovery journey, we find a different type of friend within us. In this powerful farewell, this client shows that it is possible to challenge our persistent inner voice and to reconnect with our true selves and the world around us. She shows how transformative the process of breaking free from an eating disorder can be, and that her recovery is bringing forward a new friendship that stems from within.

Dear Ed, I am writing to let you know that I have had enough. I am putting an end to this toxic friendship now! You have kept me trapped and isolated me, and made me believe that you were the only friend I could get. And that no one else liked me or wanted to be around me. You forced me into a life threatening relationship with exercise.
