You Write Your Story: 4 someone w/ anorexia, recovery is both physical (eating balanced diet 2get the nutrients the body needs, get hormones back in balance) and psychological (finding new ways of coping w/ intense feelings, body image expectations, etc) recovery can b very tough & relapse is common. The medical+psychological support u get or find & the meaning u take from ur experience will shape the story u tell.
