Never done this

when i was in residential treatment center i was put on the trauma track, but i was not given long enough time to actually work on it, but i am sure it would have been a big help, mostly hearing what others have said about i
8 years with a great therapist, could not stop messing with food with all that unresolved stuff. I was experienced severe abuse, ritual, pedophile group, violent family – It doesn’t take that long for everyone!
The great thing about the specialized treatment center I went to is that even though the staff were highly experienced in eating disorder practice and research, they also specialized in common co-occuring disorders including trauma. I have a significant trauma history which I have only begun to work on since my eating disorder has gotten under control. When first entering treatment I wasn’t capable of dealing with the significant trauma I endured growing up. That was one of the primary reasons my eating disorder developed. Now that I have fully recovered from my 20 year eating disorder I am in a place where I am able to deal with the trauma. It is very intense and will probably take a long time to complete but I know that without my therapist who has been with me since I was in treatment for my eating disorder and who specializes in trauma, I wouldn’t be able to do this work.
I didn’t have trauma issues or abuse issues, outside of a very domineering marriage. I did however, have some serious grief issues to address, once I began to “feel” again, when I began to gain weight. My youngest son had been tragically killed 6 months before I began my final treatment. I had the good fortune to have a very experienced grief counselor available to me, so I had some intense grief work integrated into my recovery plan.
