The anxiety was a major b**** and still is. It’s about pushing through that. The anxiety is manufactured by the ED…I can’t let the ED run the show. I’ve got to step up and make choices. In order for you to have some real hunger signals you are going to have to eat when you are not ‘physically’ hungry. This will allow your body to 1. stretch out the stomach 2. start trusting 3. work on the damage done. It sucks, it’s painful, it made me very anxious but I had to do it. I now have somewhat normal hunger cues. I also have to listen to the ‘mental hunger’. Do you ever find yourself obsessing about food, thinking about food, etc. This is mental hunger, you should honor this too!
