I have read a LOT of books about eating disorders and recovery over the years.
It's a brilliant concept to have the story/recovery combined with the clinician side. Seriously brilliant.
My disorder would usually get triggered in someway by just reading the 'memoir-y' recovery stuff - and the clinician stuff was too dry and removed from my experience. So I would never finish the book.
It's great to hear Robyn's side of the story (which I find parts to relate to) and then Espra puts it in context of recovery and healing.
I thought the concept of the book was interesting so I wanted to check it out - but I thought it was just going to be so I could suggest it to others who are still suffering in the disorder.
But guess what? I am getting a ton out of it.
It is reinforcing the 9 years of recovery that I have had from an eating disorder in ways I could never have imagined.
By page 43 I discovered that I have had unrealistic ideals around what recovery 'should' look like.
They busted that image and I truly know a new freedom and pride.
I love the inclusion of the words "most of the time" when they describe what a healthy relationship with food/body looks like - wow - my recovery needed to hear that!!!
This book has the power to help a lot of people - no matter where they are in the recovery process.
I thank Robyn and Espra for sharing their truth and experience so honestly.
