As I reflect on my journey towards recovery, I have set certain guidelines for myself when it comes to sharing my experiences on social media. My goal was to spread hope and inspire others while avoiding sharing any content that could be potentially triggering. This includes refraining from sharing “body checks,” images from my most difficult times, or “before and after” photos. I understand that the road to recovery can be challenging, and it’s important to be mindful of the content we share and consume on social media.
From my own experience, I am convinced that an eating disorder can also be fed by such “eating disorder recovery account”, and one can be pulled further down the rabbit hole without even realizing it.
