There have been many online conversations about disordered eating versus an eating disorder, questions about whether or not we are sick enough to get help, and so many other things like this. That’s why I thought it could be helpful to go over some of what I consider to be the most common early signs of an eating disorder, and if you have any of these, yes you are sick enough for treatment, and yes you are deserving of care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how “sick” we feel we are ALL deserving of care and can benefit from therapy. So reach out and speak up because it can and will get better!
