Posted on September 19, 2016Sometimes the opportunity arises to talk about the fact that one is in recovery from an eating disorder. It can occur at school ("Where were you last semester?"), at work ("Why do you need to take a medical leave?), amongst family ("Wow-you've changed since grandma's birthday! What happened?") and friends ("Want to be my diet buddy again?"). Knowing what to say in these instances can be difficult. Do you tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth or do you make up a totally different storyline? Usually, the response can be somewhere in between. You absolutely have the right and, actually, the responsibility, of taking care of yourself in these situations by responding in the way that suits you best. Everyone need not know everything about you.
