Why to stop saying “I’m bulimic”

YOU ARE NOT AN EATING DISORDER

Saying “I am bulimic” is creating that identity for yourself.

It implies that the eating disorder is something that you ARE and will be in the future.

An illness does not define you. 

You are so much more; funny, smart, loveable. 

You are a person first and foremost.

It’s important for you to separate yourself from the eating disorder thoughts and behaviours.

You are currently experiencing eating disorder thoughts and behaviours. 

In the future you can be a person who no longer experiences those things.

I believe that full recovery is possible for you!

Remember

💫 The words you use matter

💫 If anyone else calls you bulimic then you can politely correct them and explain why
