Eating Disorders

What's Love Got to Do With It?

What does love have to do with recovery? EVERYTHING! Easily a book could be written on this subject but I only have a few lines, so here goes.

Lack of self-love results in a tremendous amount of inner pain. Low self-esteem often leads people to look to sources outside of themselves for the love that they do not feel for themselves. This can result in "looking for love in all the wrong places" like same sex relationships, drugs, abusive relationships, codependent relationships, eating too much, alcohol, improper sexual relationships, etc. Or one might try medicating the pain with drugs, alcohol, food, gambling, etc.

Symptoms of Anorexia Nervosa & BulimiaPremium Content

The progressive symptoms of Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia are based on the most often repeated experiences of those with Anorexia and Bulimia. When a person with Anorexia Nervosa becomes bulimic, that person will experience symptoms characteristic of both eating disorders. While every symptom does not occur in every case or in precisely the same order, it does portray a typical progression pattern. While Anorexia and Bulimia are most frequently associated with women, men also acquire the disease. The goals, treatment and resultant behavior changes in recovery are similar for both eating disorders.

As your tolerance level for your drug of choice or habit increases, more and more of the substance or act is needed to get the desired effect. Though your behavior is now having an obvious negative effect on you and those around you, they rationalize, excuse and minimize the problems just as you do.

If I have an addiction, can I still be saved?

If I have an addiction, can I still be saved?

Yes! We are not called to perfect ourselves before we come to God. If we could do that, then Jesus could have spared himself the agony of dying of the cross in payment for our sins. He would have simply instructed us to live sin-free lives. He knew, though, that man is utterly incapable of cleansing himself, as demonstrated throughout the Old Testament.
