This is one person’s story; everyone will have unique experiences on their own path to recovery and beyond. Some stories may mention eating disorder thoughts, behaviors or symptom use. Please use your own discretion. And speak with your therapist when needed.

Most people who know me will tell you that I’m funny. I have always been funny. I always assumed I was funny because that was my role as the fat person in the group.
Now I know that I am funny simply because I am funny. And also because I have had a lot of training. In the process of therapy and recovery I discovered that I used humor and laughter to disguise difficult emotions.
