11:27 am - Recovery
This is so simple.  Something I really need to remind myself so that I don't give on getting better:

I didn't get to this place in a day.  I won't get out of it in one.

BE PATIENT!!!!!!!!!!

So my therapists  challenge (I just got out of it)  sit with my feelings. Just try to sit with them. She asked me about my list of things to do instead of b/ping.  I told her.  I have them. I stare at them but in those moments  I can't motivate myself to try.  So she said then don't.  Just sit with what you're feeling.  People  always  try to run from negative feelings by some coping mechanism (ie bulimia)  so just sit with it BE with it, don't avoid it. And don't give up on it. It'll take practice to be able to BE with negative feeling with out going to b/ping instead. So she is well aware  that my spring break is next week. I'm gonna get a lot of practice. Scary.

Oh  and I didn't b/p yesterday  woop woop!

Sounds like a good piece of advice.
