HI ... i have been thinking very hard about TRED and the notion of Recovery and what TRED is seeking to achieve and support. I firmly believe in recovery. Perhaps an Eating disorder is unique in that it is a mental illness that one can recover from without medication. You might need some help with medication on your journey for depression or anxiety but at the end of the day you can and will recover without relying on medication. I also am firmly of the view that recovery support groups should not become about "living with your illness" ..... It may concern managing triggers, becoming more resilient, but never about ... living with the illness. We can aim higher than that ... you deserve it and you can do it.
Founded TRED in July 2011 to give encouragement and hope to people in Tasmania who are seeking recovery from an Eating disorder.
