      *And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
      Anais Nin*  

      This has long been one of my favorite quotes because it has been so descriptive of my life at different times.  Often when I need to make a big change, the pain of staying where I am has to be greater than the pain of risking change and possible failure.  

      That’s why I chose the image for the group that I did.  It symbolizes perfectly my thoughts and feelings about embracing change, even when we‘re scared.  The rose bud is blurred in the background of the picture and the blooming rose is in the forefront.  To me it means we are choosing to risk change and blossom.

      Some of you may be here because you are sure you want recovery from your eating disorder.  Others are not sure and curious if you can find help here.

      The first post I’m just going to ask the question, “What are the barriers that keep you from the process of recovery?
      Obviously you can answer at whatever level you feel comfortable.  Whatever you want to share is enough.  Some of you may not share anything, you may just want to read and that is okay too.  

      This is an approval only group because I want you here for the right reasons and I want to make sure it is a safe place to share.  I can’t wait to meet you all and watch you grow from bud to blossom!
