Ok, so the local hospital has an eating disorder support group tonight from 7-9pm and I have decided to go. Durring the first hour you can bring a friend or family member and Chris is going to come with me. I am pretty excited about this and a little nervous. I think it would be great even if Chris doesn't talk, because maybe something someone else says will be helpful to him. Also, does this, like, count as a date???
The second hour is what I am more nervous about. I have been in many ED groups in my life, and know from experience that they can be REALLY helpful, or REALLY unhelpful. It just depends on the mix of patients, and their motivation to recover. I just hope it doesn't digress into an hour of "compare & despair", if you know what I mean.
And then there is my own attitude. Don't get me wrong; I will bring my A game. Recovery all the way! But in my mind already I am worrying about if I will be the fattest one there, and I have just put on my ultra-slimming black leggings and an oversized top. So much for maturity and resolve.
I will have to post a part II to this and tell you all how it went. Think positive healthy thoughts for me!!!
