Hi everyone, I am new to the community. My name is Heather and I am 28 years old, married for 5 years and I have a 9 year old son. I have been dealing with an eating disorder for over 14 years, and have been in multiple treatment centers. I have been in recovery for almost a year now. I was actually really enjoying life, food and most of all the fact that I was alert and able to be the mom and wife that I wanted to be. I started back to work 2 months ago, where I am an EMT for a commercial ambulance company. I love my job. Then, recently, I have been encountered with some stress factors I am not dealing with very well. So, I am finding myself resorting back to what I feel comfortable with and that is my eating disorder. I just can't do this to my family anymore. My husband gets frustrated, even though he tries to understand and be helpful. I just sobbed to him last night telling him how scared I was. I don't know what to do. I am in therapy currently and I don't even know how that is going because we focus basically on my depression and anxiety, which this eating disorder is definitely provoking. I know people have relapses, but this just can not happen to me right now. My head is going crazy and it is making me very depressed. Does any one have any suggestions? I feel so alone one again!
