What Our Patients Are Saying

Right now, is the most stable place I’ve ever been… emotionally, physically, mentally, all multi-dimensions. I’ve never felt this stable and been able to maintain it for this long. It’s the opposite of everything I’ve ever felt when I’ve been in the eating disorder. All I can think of is day/night, black/white, it’s totally different in the best way.
I don’t know if this is just me, but with my eating disorder there was just so much shame. So it wasn’t just about being supported, it was being accepted and not judged that provided me with the courage to go out in my own life and open up and share my story with my loved once and be honest with them. And it’s also really helped me have some acceptance towards myself, which has been huge.
Over the course of my recovery, my team not only helped me actually overcome my eating disorder but also really allowed me to release judgement and loathing towards myself so that I could go out into the world and build stronger bonds and not be so afraid of relationships and intimacy. To me that’s huge. I just felt so alone all the time - so eating disorder and symptoms aside - my recovery journey has really allowed me to be in my life and connect with people in a way that I missed. And I needed.

How do I know if I have an eating disorder?

If your relationship with food or your body feels intrusive or like it’s taking up a lot of your time, it indicates disordered eating patterns.

What are the types of eating disorders?

Eating disorders are complicated mental health issues exhibited through abnormal eating habits, characterized by obsessions with food, body shape or body weight. Common types of eating disorders include bulimia, anorexia, binge eating, orthorexia, OSFED, and purging disorder.

What is anorexia?

Anorexia is a restrictive eating disorder, marked with severe caloric restriction often resulting in a dangerously low body weight. People with anorexia have a tremendous fear of weight gain and a distorted perception of their body. Some exercise compulsively or purge. It’s important to note that not all patients with anorexia will be visually underweight and also that the intrusive thoughts can remain even after refeeding/weight gain takes place.

What is bulimia?

Bulimia is a condition characterized by bingeing and purging. A person will eat a large amount of food in a short period of time and will feel out of control while doing so. As a means to compensate for this, they will purge – either through self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise, laxative or diuretic use.

What is orthorexia?

Orthorexia is an obsession or fixation with “healthy” or “clean” foods. People with orthorexia take “healthy” eating to risky extremes. They are driven by a desire to only consume “pure”, “healthy” food and develop an irrational fear of any food considered “unclean”. They will over-identify food as the cause of undesired physical or mental health symptoms they experience, which intensifies the obsession. They are preoccupied with a “perfect diet” and many do become underweight due to the extreme restriction.

What is binge eating?

This is an eating disorder exhibited through recurring episodes of eating uncontrolled, large quantities of food in a short period of time to the level of discomfort often in the absence of hunger.

What is OSFED?

OSFED stands for Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorders and describes individuals who have significant eating disturbances or eating disorder symptoms that cause distress and functional impairment, but do not meet the strict criteria for bulimia nervosa or anorexia nervosa.

What does purging mean?

Purging refers to an eating disorder where an individual uses purging behavior to control or manipulate their body weight and shape. Purging behavior includes self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise, use of laxatives, and fasting.
