No, recovery is possible. It is a long bumpy road, but recovery is possible and you are worth it. Don't give up.

Let me ask you this, do you think sacrificing your mental health is worth destroying you're physical health?

This may sound cheesy but do what ever makes you but above all make sure your happy and that also includes your mental health!

No. It's not worth it. That's why we try so hard to stop, because it's not worth it and it takes up too much space which should be filled with other stuff.

No, it is not worth it if it is jeopardizing other parts of your health. Please see a counselor or therapist to guide you in how to handle and react to ED.

I've got one word for you: NO!!! I'm am so glad you see the toll ED has taken from your life because many people do not see that. It is time you make a change. Seek help and invest your life in yourself, not anyone else.

(I'm assuming that ED refers to eating disorders.) No, eating disorders are never worth it. They are a serious tax on not only mental health but physical health as well. Treatment and recovery are so worth it, take it from a recovered person. Good luck.

ED effect your mental health by themselves. Often times things we try to do can be helpful, and sometimes they can be hurtful. The decision is up to you, and whether or not you feel you can attempt to organize yourself enough to work on it. Maybe you can't do it yourself, maybe you need assistance. However, eating disorders are an important thing to fix, but no one can fix an entire factory by themselves, it demands too much. Maybe, just maybe, you can reach out to someone, work with us on here, and talk it out, we will always be here to listen:)
