Bullet Points | Recovery is not Linear The Emma Guns Show

    • Self-Improvement

This week’s mid-week Bullet Points episode is a confession.
Well, more to the point, it’s an honest account of being in recovery and how this idea of being ‘fixed’ or ‘over it’ is completely false.
I’m in recovery from binge-eating disorder after identifying it as an issue I was struggling with two years ago. I’ve put in a lot of graft - mental, emotional and physical - to get to a place where I no longer feel panicked around and dependent on food or uncomfortable in my own skin because of my self-sabotaging behaviours with food. What a cycle to be caught in!
However, I had a setback recently and I thought it might be helpful to be honest with you about it. If you follow me here it could look as though I’ve figured it all out, but it’s a work in progress.
For months I’ve felt completely free of all the old feelings I had but last weekend I spent 48 hours in a pit of self-hatred, self-sabotage and confusion.
Rather than see it as a negative, I’ve decided to see it as a positive and I explain why in the show.
