“The only person who can help you is you”.
I remember exactly where I was when I heard those words, 14 years ago. I was stopped at traffic lights near the end of my street. Someone was being interviewed on the radio and although I can’t remember the discussion, or even who was speaking, those words shot straight out of the speakers and exploded in my brain.
It was a genuine breakthrough moment in my life, succeeding where a string of therapists had failed by making me realise that, ultimately, I had to help myself. Someone could talk at me until we were both blue in the face, but only I held the power to stop the continual cycle of bingeing and vomiting.
