30 day challenge question 27

"a problem you have had"

I'm thinking that by the end of this they had run out of SENSIBLE topics...

Anyone who has lived past the age of 5 has had a buzillion problems...

Anyways (said in the voice of Ellen) I'm going to go with body image since that is one I am really struggling with these days. It seems I wake up every morning and before I even open my eyes the negative talk starts... And it can be triggered by anything - the position I am sleeping in or (heaven forbid) if I'm not cold...

I actually was planning on blogging about this later today anyway but since it ties in here I'll ask now... Has anyone ever intentionally taken a step back in recovery? I am considering it because I am wondering if going back will actually let me step forward more strongly... I feel like I am "fake getting better" here and it's not a feel I relish so I am considering stepping back to better step forward... I know this is rather vague but it's intentional so I don't trigger any of my recovery friends...

+++what's your take on my solution to my current "problem"?+++

Have you talked w/ your doc about your plan? I have no idea if this is a good idea or not, so maybe someone who can help you w/ any unexpected side effects could be a better voice.

My concerns would be:
- physical consequences (more pain etc)
- liking the step back too much.

I have really been trying to wrap my head around this and it sounds like a not good thing. It sounds like ED making an excuse.Maybe I don't get it?
Right now I want to go backwards. No excuses. No spin on it.
