This man doesn't suffer from an eating disorder, but he has a very powerful message about health and his path to recovery from a life-threatening illness. I learned a lot from him that I can transfer to my ed treatment.

The video is an hour, but well worth your time. He is on a feeding tube for part of his journey, so just know that.

"You have personal responsibility for your own recovery. You can't pass all responsibility off to the caregiving community. Those of us in recovery need to accept that I have responsibility for my own healing to a certain degree. I have to be a full participant in this. I can't blame and keep pressuring other people to do more than they are able to do."

I know, he is so funny! I especially enjoyed it when he was talking about physical therapists...
