Seeing the Eating Disorder as a Parasite

Season #1 Episode #8

An eating disorder is not your fact, it's quite the opposite. It sucks the life out of you like a parasite, and uses you to its ADVANTAGE. It uses your body as a host to multiply, and then engrains itself until you almost feel like it has become your identity. Yep, this is HORRIBLE, but this metaphor was also the key to my recovery. In this episode, I dive into how you can separate yourself from the illness & take responsibility for your recovery. You'll learn:

  • How the eating disorder tricks you into thinking you're superior
  • Why the eating disorder can be compared to a parasite or virus
  • How to deal with the fear of emptiness when you finally "let go" of the ED
  • Why it's the "smart ones" that develop anorexia & other eating disorders
  • How to stop being a victim & becoming an advocate in recovery
  • What COVID has to do with all this!
