051 Fighting Anorexia – Explaining Your “crazy” Behavior to Outsiders

by Anne-Sophie

in Podcast


In this episode of Fighting Anorexia, I give you some tips on how to have a conversation with your loved ones about your behaviors and the lies your eating disorder is telling you.

I share with you the following:

1. We can seem a bit crazy to the outside world.

2. I had a very rough week with a lot of crazy behavior.

3. It’s your job to make your friends, partners and everyone else you’d like to know more about your disorder understand.

4. Be honest. There is no right or wrong way, there is only the honest way of communicating.

5. Tell them they can always ask.

6. Have patience with them.

7. Have the conversation over and over again.

Hi, i think that this podcast is so amazing because it is just so true. By making the eating disorder seem ‘crazy,’ for me it kind of makes the problem inferior to our actual being. It makes it seem as though its just a behaviour and it puts into perspective for us that it is possible to recover. Thank you Anne-Sophie! 😀

Hi Micaela,

yay! Thanks for commenting. I always love to hear from my listeners. I am so glad you liked this episode. It’s true, sometimes we have to find ways of making this horrible disorder seem a bit less horrible and calling it “crazy” is just one way of doing so.
