Are you using the coping skills you have learned to fight ED?

Posted Nov 06 2012 9:45am

What other coping skills have you added to your toolkit to replace your need for the eating disorder? Are you employing those skills, or have you retreated to what feels easiest and most convenient? -Quote from Beating Ana

Ed will always encourage you to make checklists. “Good, good”, Ed will say, “Write it all down so you will remember. That’s a good little perfectionist.”

What Ed will NEVER do is encourage you to USE what you are learning and writing down against him.

That part will be up to you.

You can gather a support team around you and ask them to continually remind you that you have a list of coping skills and you know how to use each one against ED. That way, if you forget, they will remind you. But you will still have to ultimately use those coping skills if you want ED to leave you alone for good.

Are you using your hard-won coping skills to beat back ED? If not, what can you do starting right now to use the knowledge and skills you have to stand your ground when ED wants more control over you?
