welcome to the forum and well done for working hard to come this far. You are right that people don’t talk about this unglamorous side of recovery and I am glad you have spoken honestly about.
I have not had anorexia but I have experienced interstitial cystitis that often results in needing to know where every bathroom is outside my home and avoiding places and events that would have limited access to bathrooms. It is embarrassing and awkward at times.
I can understand how you feel about loss of dignity even though you know it is reversible.
It is huge for us and embarrassing but you have come a long way and while it is socially awkward you will come through this.
I admire your honesty to bring this up as I am sure others reading your post will relate and maybe not feel shame as they now know they are not alone.
You have strength to have come this far and have perserved and are now willing to help others by sharing your experience.
You may have already contacted the Butterfly foundation as I know they are a helpful resource and may have some resources or ideas to help you. 1800334673
Thanks again for sharing your story. I am proud of what you have achieved.
feel free to post here if your want to.
