Rehabilitate, Rewire, Recover has been the best “treatment” I have ever had

08/06/2018

I never understood why others in treatment personified their eating disorder. For me, like you, I just had thoughts and feelings. I never had a “voice”, in third person talking to me in my head. I thought I was the only one. I definitely had horrible, dreadful thoughts, but they were always me, being incredibly cruel and hateful to myself. I am working so hard to recover. My last stay in residential treatment was exactly a year ago. I still struggle SO HARD, but Rehabilitate, Rewire, Recover has been the best “treatment” I have ever had (and I’ve had A LOT!)!!

Wow, what a thought provoking piece! I’ve been trying to mold my body into what media portrayed is pretty or sought after for over 33 years. Wish I would’ve read this a long time ago. Thanks Tabitha.

Hi Tabitha, Thank you so much for all the content you put out. I honestly believe you have played an incredible role in me getting to where I am today. When my eating disorder thoughts start to get really noisy and I want to binge/restrict again or just generally panicking my Mum always tells me to ‘think about what Tabitha would say to do’ or ‘Tabitha would say this is normal in recovery.’ I watch your videos every single day to keep me moving forward in my recovery. I just wondered if there was any chance you might be able to answer me a question? I’ve been experiencing extreme hunger and binging for a long time now, but still not got my period back. Is it possible to be at a healthy weight (I’m still a little bit underweight but not nearly as low as it was) and not get your period back? Thank you so much x

Tabitha, I think you are absolutely amazing. I am experiencing relapse at the moment – I want to say a small slip, but this would be denying what the reality is! Your recovery blogs have been enormously helpful to me over the past month or so, and especially in tackling the denial that continues to serve to maintain my anorexic behaviours. When I have talked about the anorexic thoughts in my head, I have always said “my head says x or y” but from now on, I am going to say “anorexia says x or y” as this is NOT me, it is the eating disorder and I need to continuously separate and distance the illness from “me”. You have helped me to realise this. I admire you so much for what you are doing to help others and for tackling such a difficult illness to overcome on your own. You are inspiring. Anything is possible! Thank you. Joanna

Going through this right now. As rule followers and smart…obsessive personalities it is so hard to break free of the “plan”. Feels like you aren’t still trying if you dont follow..ugh!! Been doing this shit for 30 years and went to treatment 4 years ago….recovered with a balanced plan but once out it has me handcuffed…as in your patient to move on or need give ourselves permission to listen to our body’s voice…instinct is right!!!!@

Thank you so much for your wisdom and absolute brilliance Tabitha! I am an 18 year old female who is currently going through weight restoration to reach my set point. Your words keep me mindfull of what I need to do in order to fully recover. Your make me confident in eating unrestricted when there are strong emotions questioning what I am doing.

I have written before. I have had anorexia since I was 19 and now I am 54. Tabatha has given me something no other therapists hospital or even good friends have been able to do. The way she looks at the biology and genetic predisposition have taken the shame of my eating disorder away and turned it into something like a math problem that has a solution!!! I think the “fuck it” attitude is turning me around. There is a another book written by Joyce Meyer “ Battlefield of the Mind” that is a Christian book about changing your thoughts and beliefs. For me, the two go just perfectly together! I may be Tabitha’s biggest fan. I’m making changes st 54!!!!!!

Hi, I just want to say I LOVE and 100% relate to so many of the topics you discuss in your podcast. You truly are inspirational AND motivational for me. I just listened to your podcast: Why Finding and Eliminating Hidden Restriction Aids in Anorexia Recovery and also read an article written by Hannah on her blog https://www.healthyhappyhannah.com/recovery/2018/6/28/my-battle-with-binge-eating-disorder In this blog, I was wondering if she really had a binge eating disorder. Could you read it and let me know what you think? Thanks so much, you are awesome:)

Gaining a few pounds slightly changing bmi

14/10/2018

My doctor who monitors my heath/weight/nutrition weekly as I am quite ill …….well, he is my only support says oh you gained a few pounds ~ see you in a couple of weeks ~ it leaves me thinking I can’t get support unless I weigh X amt of pounds. Then I restrict more on top of already restricting so I can get the support I need. It’s working against me making me sicker.

Tabitha is Incredible

Tabitha’s blog saved my life! She is so realistic about REAL recovery-no halfway, “clean eating” bullshit that is so common after anorexia. Tabitha will never know the extent of my gratitude to her. She is amazing.

I found Tabitha a year and a half ago. Thankfully. It has been quite a struggle but I love how open and honest she is about recovery. Tabs has helped me understand that it is okay to want to eat. And that there should be no limit in the amount I eat or what my body deems as a healthy weight. Thank you Tabitha!!

I wasn’t a lost cause & neither are you!

13/09/2018

I have been in and out of hospital for the last 20 years and I can honestly say the ‘treatment’ I received was not only unhelpful but detrimental. Tabitha knows what she is talking about, she has herself suffered from an eating disorder and her research, intelligence and dedication to the cause results in saving lives. I would not be where I am today without this woman. I was told by ‘professionals’ that I’d never recover, that I needed manage my anorexia forever. They were wrong. To anyone that needs to make sense of their eating disorder, please read Tabitha’s books/blog posts, watch her YouTube videos and listen to her podcasts. I wasn’t a lost cause & neither are you.

The prize of recovery

31/08/2018

I am a eating disorder therapist. Many of my clients are in two minds about recovering. On the one hand they understand that the life they are living is horrendous, but on the other hand the thought of actually changing, terrifies them. I like to let them listen to this podcast which in a conversational way shows them what their life could be like. Tabitha describes how it was (which they readily identify with) then talks about how her life is now – a prize well worth striving for. There is something about this podcast which seems to go straight past the protestations of the eating disorder and gives the rational part of the person hope and a vision of what life will be like once they have recovered. My clients love it. Simply brilliant
