How fortunate it is for those who have their own voice to express who they are, what they feel, what matters to them and to be just free to be with their own thoughts. No thought or voice intruders aboard. There are others who are not so fortunate. They have other voices that are named eating disorders who are intrusive, argumentative, controlling and are the little voices inside saying you’re getting fat, don’t eat that. The ED voice is also very convincing and it is somewhat impossible to distinguish from one’s own voice.
There has been much discussed and written about ED’s little voice and the most important information is that there is hope that the ED voice can be separated from one’s own voice after much work and a long journey down the road of recovery where peace is felt and dreams can be followed. You can become the center of your life and find your own voice.
