Roadblocks to Recovery

One of my therapy assignments was to write a pro/con list for fully recovering from my eating disorder.  The idea of identifying the “cons” wasn’t so much to figure out whether I should bother recovering, but more to identify the roadblocks I was likely to encounter on my way to recovery.  I had quite a few cons, and it occurred to me that by addressing these issues head-on, I would probably have a better chance at recovery.  So if recovery were a road, then these issues would be my roadblocks.

I thought that it would be an interesting or at least useful idea to address each of these roadblocks in its own post. Below are the posts.
