I'm really proud of the progress you have made and how you handled your lapse. I think the insight you have into why it happened is just one of the many things that shows just how far you've come! Thank you for your honesty! Just remember that recovery is a process, not an instantaneous fix. It sounds like you learned from this situation and that is one part of the process :)
Camilla, you are great and I just adore you. Honesty makes a huge difference in every area of life, for everyone. And your honesty is so admirable. Go Camilla!!!!
I'm very proud of you. Thank you for sharing this. As said by others, recovery is day by day, moment by moment. One step forward, one step back, one step to the side and onward.Keep up the good work and keep reaching out. We are all supporting you and learning something about ourselves in the process!From Sunny Seattle!
I can totally relate, thank you for your honesty! it is so easy to take on the all our nothing attitude. I've already failed, so I'm already a failure... But doing the next best thing is always a lifesaver (literally) and removes the shame. I'm proud of you for your honesty! :)
YOU ARE BRAVE! YOU ARE AWESOME! We all lapse in our lives with our own struggles. Thank you for the reminder that there is always the next choice/time that we can do better. Thank you for sharing and the great reminder!
Camilla I don't think that anyone could hate you for making a mistake! I love that you are so honest about your eating disorder. I wish I could be like that! Your blog and videos are so inspiring and they make me want to work harder on my recovery! I love how you said your ed is 18 years old, it kinda puts it into perspective that you can't recover over night or in 6 months. It definitely takes time! I just love you and I hope you know how inspiring you are to me and many others! Stay strong!! XOXO
From one in recovery (9 years this June!) to another.... Remember its a marathon, not a sprint. When I came home from Remuda I had a few lapses and got so frustrated with myself.... But I kept doing the next right thing as you say. And eventually my lapses became few and far between as I got stronger and stronger in my recovery. It takes time, but you are STRONG! You got this! Thanks for your honesty! And just passing on some hope for you that good things will come.... After years (decades) of living in the hell of ED, I was free... Free to live.... Got married, had 2 beautiful babies and am LIVING life. You will too Camilla. Good things are coming :) stay strong! Sarah from PA
Hey. I've been having a really difficult time lately. This was very encouraging to see. I love you so much, Camilla. <3 <3 <3 Making mistakes doesn't make you a bad person; making mistakes means you're human!
