Recovery wins

Recovery is a roller-coaster, we all know that, the mix has loads of places for support during recovery, but I think we need a place for our recovery wins too 😊 there are some good things and when I do something to better my recovery I feel proud, so here's somewhere we can celebrate together 😊

    Binned my pill stash, can I get a hell yeahh? 💃😂 It may look like a lot but I was on 3x a week dispense so really it's just tons of little boxes 🤷‍♀️

    Today I took 4 trains ( 2 there and 2 back ) to Liverpool and when my second train was cancelled on the way home I didn’t panic and stayed calm whilst I rang my dad to work out what to do next !

    Attempted a full day at work today, but it was getting a bit much so spoke to my manager to come home, the plan next week is to do 2  half days and 2 full days so I'm not jumping straight back into full time 😊 we'll build it up when we see how I get on.. 

    Basically the recovery win here is a spoke up before things got too much and I done something destructive 👌

    Just finished a selection box I got for Christmas 💪 might not seem like a lot but it's the first time I've finished one in years, even though it took me like 2 months 😂 and yes, I did have chocolate for breakfast 👌😂

    Yesterday I ate pancakes.. Not because I was forced, but because I wanted them! For so many years I was afraid of pancake day, especially if someone else had made them and they weren't my mams low calorie ones (my dad's diabetic so we don't use sugar) but yesterday I was the one suggesting getting pancakes, something both scary and satisfying. I could hear my brain screaming 'what are you doing' but I went ahead and ate them anyway 💃

    just realized this, but someone knocked on my door this morning and my first thought wasn't 'shit, the police' it was 'whos that' like the police didn't even come into my mind, really starting to feel free-er now :)

    I took a moment to appreciate how far I've come. It made me a bit emotional when I realised that i was 100% recovered from my past eating disorder. I can't beleive I did it

    I just went to the shop and didn't have a panic attack when they were out of the only safe brand of custard (custard is legit my only safe food). Instead, I calmly picked up another and even though it was higher calorie, bought it! Whether I eat it is a whole new matter...

    I've found liquid calories are easier for me to intake and don't feel as much like shit after intaking them. Still not great but an improvement I never thought I'd make
