I really needed to read this. I am in recovery for an eating disorder (and other mental health problems) and for a while I was trying to fill the void, and I guess I somewhat still am. But now I am spending my time doing things I enjoy, that bring me peace and bring me closer to being the person I want to be.
Thank you for your response.
I do other forms of exercise, but it’s just a struggle to ‘justify’ eating (or over indulging in my mind) when I’m less active.
Yeah, I am not overly creative, but I will look into some crafty things or just go for something like gardening – I love gardening.
I looked into free online courses! Thank you so much for that idea!
I am changing courses at uni so I know what you mean. I used to love what I was doing, but as I really thought about it, I realised I wasn’t passionate enough about it and wouldn’t like to work in that field. So I’m hoping for a transfer!
I hope things get easier for you, and I’m here if you ever want to chat about recovery/life/whatever.
