Stories of Recovery

EDV have collated a diverse range of recovery stories from members of the community. Recovery stories are first hand examples of people’s journey to recovery from an eating disorder. They show that recovery IS possible.

Stories are from both people who have experienced an eating disorder, and from those who have supported them.



There is no magic word, prescription or motivational speech that will force recovery upon you. Only you can make that choice. That choice will dissipate the loneliness and isolation that your eating disorder compels you to feel.

Learning to nourish my soul

To my body, thank you for not giving up on me. You’re the only one I have to take me through the journey of life. The only vehicle to connect my soul to the world, to touch, taste and smell the flavours of life. I promise to care and nurture you.
