Recovering Disordered Eater Helping Others, Burning Out

May 7, 2012

“I recently shared my testimony at church about recovering from bulimia, and now it seems I’m a magnet for girls who struggle with disordered eating. I want to help them, and so I’ve been spending a lot of time talking on the phone, e-mailing, and even meeting one-on-one with them, but now I’m starting to feel burned out. Plus it’s kind of triggering some stuff in me, too. How can I play a healthy role in their lives without becoming the sole person they turn to? Should I talk to my pastor about this?”
