I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has been the victim of an Eating Disorder. Family members and friends, will also benefit tremendously from the insight and advise shared.
Having struggled extensively from Bulimia Nervosa for over 13 years, and a further 2 decades in recovery, it is all thanks be to God that I have managed to successfully recover from this awful, life-threatening Eating Disorder. Still, I won’t ever forget my vulnerability to food and hence I continue every day, on my full and holistic journey of recovery “Every day, for the rest of my life!” A journey composed of holistic recovery; self-discovery and acceptance, which I would like, if I may, to share with each and every one of YOU! 😊 As I believe that my lessons learnt and the variety of tools and exercises that I have shared, can only assist you on your individual journeys to full and complete recovery.
As a former Bulimic sufferer, I have also had to do a tremendous amount of work to accept; love and believe in myself again. As well as create a life worth living and full of enjoyment. These exercises and tools which I have shared in this book, will certainly assist you to stay on the “right road.” As well as help you to create a life of abundance which you were destined to enjoy.
25% of the world suffer from Emotional Health challenges of some sort, so there is no need to suffer in silence, or be ashamed of your disorder and/or emotional instability. There is no time like the present, to live your best life ever!!!
I allowed the world to determine my worth, relying on substances to help me feel alive. Addictions such as: Bulimia nervosa; alcohol; drugs; nicotine; sugar and caffeine, which almost cost me my life. I was frantically trying to find purpose in all the wrong places. My burning desire to find myself and my soul-purpose on earth, became my life-long quest. I yearned for something greater that would fill the void, which I felt deep within my soul. Still, I knew that there was a much deeper meaning and purpose to my life, than what I had known it to be. I longed to find that special, “something” which would finally make me feel content and whole.
Emotional/Mental Health has often had negative connotations to it, which I believe may have hindered many sufferers’ former desires for recovery. Emotional wellbeing should be just as important in maintaining, as for instance, one’s physical health. My vision is to give a voice to the importance which Emotional Health has in our lives. There is absolutely no need to feel ashamed and there is certainly no need to suffer in silence. Hopefully by sharing my experiences, it will further assist others and hopefully prevent others from following suit. I believe that this is my life purpose which God has created me for, and I now obediently follow Him every day of my life.
I believe that I have travelled my journey, not only for my own life lessons, but to be able to assist others in their quests, as well. I believe that God has preserved me because of what is within me. He has preserved me for a greater purpose and I wholeheartedly believe that my purpose is to reach out and help each one of YOU!
I pray that I can be a positive, life changing force for others, inspiring them to live their lives to their absolute fullest, by being the very best versions of themselves. Ensuring that we are able to live the life we were destined to live. Being free from living lives governed by consuming addictions which ultimately result in self-destruction, prison, institutions and ultimately death. For it is then, when my life’s journey will be given meaning, knowing that I have survived and been able to share in my life lessons, by being able to assist YOU with yours.
