Stuck - Overcoming Trauma and Battling an Eating Disorder



I don’t know what to do. I’m so tired of fighting. I thought that I had fixed myself with self care, but I’m still very traumatized and have an eating disorder. I need someone to talk to.
gentle empathy, jude. the too many times my illness has broken through my once-and-for-all fixes made me feel more broken with every failed panacea.

i'm doing better since i gave up the fight for a panacea and shifted the focus to managing the symptoms on a more tolerant basis. i ain't perfect. i'm a works in progress.

steadying support while you find what works for you. feel free to send me a personal message if you want a more private dialogue.
Sadly, self-care only “fixes” self-care issues. Like malnutrition, sleep deprivation, hygiene issues, etc., etc..

All of those things make PTSD worse, so symptoms will improve as one’s overall health improves, but do not treat the disorder, itself.
