I’m Not Perfect And That’s OK

“I woke up this morning with a really fuzzy head. I just was in a total funk and was quite tearful.
I couldn’t put my finger on it, but my eating disorder was telling me all sorts. My head was a total fog. I get scared when this happens as it reminds me of the old days when I was really sick in my ED.
I pondered for the morning and then realised that it’s totally normal to have days like this in recovery. I’m not perfect (thank goodness), I’m just doing the best I can each day. I allowed myself to feel a bit blue, and then picked myself up and dug into my reserves to carry on my day the best I can.
 This isn’t a lovely handmade Jiggsaw like some of your others, but I wanted to send in something I made anyway. I hope you will share it.”
