Is it possible bloating can last a year or so into recovery? I've recently had health problems and was wondering if it's possible my body is still repairing itself. I'm seeing a doctor about it all, but I'm just wondering if it's a possibility.

@Anonymous

Well, I’m not a doctor so I can’t say for sure. During refeeding I did bloat severley for the first few weeks and it was horrendous but after that for me, the bloating came and went from time to time probably up to 9 months. So it could be possible but you’d really have to talk to your doctor or a nutritionist. I don’t know your personally so it’s really hard to know but in all likelihood your body is still repairing itself whether the bloating is related or not your body in recovery takes time to heal.

In the meantime, drink herbal tea slowly when you feel bloating and put a hot water bottle on your stomach.

I hope this helps, H xxx

hazel grace dislikes this post

hazel grace’s lungs still function so that she can keep living..i have chronic lung problems but theyre still working ok for the time being, even if i always have a cough and i need to take in a lot of extra air. i think it’s important that even if ur body isnt like, operating at max capacity, to be told that it’s doing okay anyway. even if u arent always at optimal health because of any myriad of conditions, youre doing really well & youre really important & im proud of u

I can’t help with 99% of eating disorder stuff because just thinking about it triggers crazytownbananapants for me, but this could really help some people.

Signal boost for all the girls and boys working with recovery.

Leah, this is for you and everyone else who had trouble

OMG this is exciting

recovering from anorexia, this is so important. i know something like this would have helped me.

I’ve been using this for a couple months and it’s helped so much!! I’d really recommend it!

I made this journal page during a really difficult time in my recovery. It helped me before meals to realize that I need to care for myself as if I were still a precious little girl. It’s easy to forget that we deserve to love ourselves just as much now as we love our toddler/infant/childhood selves.

Maybe you won’t, but the likelihood is that you will, at some point during your recovery, get Hungry. With a capital H. (Sure, people are different, but this was all-too-true for me, so I thought I’d share.)


This is so relevant… Especially the ‘meal plan’ thing… I didn’t know anyone else did that.
