TW: talk of anorexia and pregnancy/infant loss
In this episode, Nicola and Florence have a conversation with Meg, former anorexia patient and owner of the Megsyrecovery Youtube account. Together they talked about Meg's anorexia treatment as a teen in the UK, about her accidental relapse as a young adult and finally getting access to CBT-E. Meg evoked the hard steps to take in recovery to eat, even though it felt really scary, and how she managed to rewire her brain along the way, zooming out to invest in the life she truly wanted to live.
Meg also explains some of the tips and tricks she used in recovery, to help shift her focus, deal with the guilt of eating more, accept her body and weight gain, and stay on track with her life goals.
