Hello! I've yet to land here in the 40+ forum - have been exclusively in others (bulimia, general ED, ortho) and a thread was posted that I thought might be interesting to explore here.
Where do you see your ED going in the next 10 years?
...the youngsters worded it as "how do you see this/your story with ED ending" but it needs revision for this board, I think.
Will he go away?
Will he continue on course, as it?
Do you see your disorder flaring in waves around those tense times of year and lesser when things are calm?
I'm a 47 y/o mother of 17 year old rising hs senior/college applicant and my bulimia is RAGING since the arrival of COVID. I am a strong, lean, 5' 10" daily-practicing yogi that most would say is "the healthiest person" they know (got them fooled...hehe).
I do NOT have control over this virus.
I do NOT have control over what this school year will look like for my son nor the college application process.
I can't control his SAT/ACT scores nor motivate him to get on writing his essays so he has ample time to think them through.
I CAN control what goes in my body and stays there.
I hope I can break this habit-cycle/BAD HOBBY before I reach nursing home age. Something tells me that they don't accept bulimic 75 year old residents.
What do you see as YOUR future with (or without!) ED?
